A few hexies that didn’t make it to the quilt pile.
An evening’s sewing and a little stuffing.
A perfect pincushion.
sat on a speckled log.
Or in this case a speckled table.
These little guys are made from this free pattern over at Purl, with thanks to them for sharing.
A few scraps of fabric, some ‘past their sell-by date’ lentils, and voila, happy children.
The originals have beautiful little bead eyes,
but in this house they’d be pulled off and eaten
faster than you can say
You’ll remember that Ma and I were going to The Patchwork Chicks for a bag making day for Mother’s Day.
Well, it was fabulous.
Despite Button’s best attempts to stop me getting out of the door…you know, screaming, shouting, stamping feet, the usual toddler delaying tactics…we still managed to get to Barrowford in time for tea and a very tasty bacon sandwich at the little cafe across the road, the name of which escapes me.At the appointed hour we liberated machines and sewing supplies from the car and headed on in.
There were four of us in total and we all got on famously from the get go.
First we cut out little house shapes and a base from fabric and interliningstitched them togetherthen we lined them, topstitched them, et voila!Of course, before you add cord they also make splendid hats
On Saturday I’m treating Ma to a day at a bag making workshop at The Patchwork Chicks in Barrowford. Obviously it would be rude of me to expect her to go on her own, so being the selfless individual I am, I’m sacrificing my day to go with her.
Hang on whilst I take my tongue out of my cheek!
We had homework to complete prior to the day. 3 stitcheries which will feature on the pockets of the bag.
The fabric is from the Maison de Garance range by French General for Moda.I just love this colour palette.
I think we’re going to have a lovely day. I’ll report back.
