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.
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.
I mentally noted down the “how to” in my memory bank of makes but it was only in the last day or so that I have managed to get a couple of days to play in the craft room.
So, given that I had the time and the inclination – I thought that I would have a go.
I’ve been sewing up some pin cushions this week as little testers for christmas (yes, I said it) gifts for some friends and family that like sewing so I thought that I would share the results (so far) with you.
Just a quickie for Fabric Friday this week that combines my love of fabric with my passion for reading.
Bookmarks are fairly easy to create and involve some very basic skills. In this post I’ll give you a very basic overview as to how I create mine to give you a jumping off point in case you wanted to have a go yourself.
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!
Since then I have had a number of you contact me to say that you are new to sewing and need simple to make ideas; some of you also asked for details on how to make the fabric bowls that I showed you last week.
So, Fabric Friday 2 ticks both of those boxes with a walk-through on how I make the fabric bowls.
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!).
Having a life long passion for sewing, and having produced a lot of the quilting classroom shows on Create and Craft TV with Jennie Rayment it was inevitable that I would want to have a go at patchwork. This is just a quick post with a gallery of some of my attempts.
