Fabric Friday - Foundation Paper Piecing Sew Along - 17

Fabric Friday – A Foundation Paper Pieced Sew-Along

Hello and welcome to another Fabric Friday. This week I thought that I would try something different and see if anyone would like to take part in a sort of a sew-along with me.

I recently purchased a jelly roll and thought that I would create a simple foundation paper piecing pattern that we can all have a go at – and hopefully I will be able to share my finished piece, along side yours in a future Fabric Friday post.

Fabric Friday – Practice Prairie Points

I’ve often seen prairie points in various guises and creations however I’ve never had a go at these.

The notion of mucking about with these little triangles resurfaced when they were briefly demonstrated during a recent show that I worked on at Create and Craft featuring Debbie Johnson and Kim Suleman from Canny Keepsakes/Six Penny Memories.

Fabric Friday 2 – Simple Fabric Bowls

Welcome to the second post in the Fabric Friday series.

Last week I promised that I would be back each Friday to show you some fabric projects, tips and ideas – yay! I managed two in a row!

So, Fabric Friday 2 ticks both of those boxes with a walk-through on how I make the fabric bowls.

Fabric Friday – An Update And A Prelude

It has occurred to me that I often prattle on about how much I love working with fabrics but haven’t really shown much of it on this blog.

To rectify this I will be setting down soon and putting together a series of blog posts that will come out every Friday (assuming that I have the time of course).

They will aptly be named – Fabric Friday :)

This one is a little teaser to show you just a few of the things that I have done in the past and what I will be showing you how to do in these posts (oh, and a little update on the upcycled shirt quilt that I have been working on for what seems like forever!).
