Sometime ago I gave you a rough overview on how to make a simple tote bag. Before this I was on TV promoting sewing machines and a booklet that I had created to show how to make five different handbag styles.
I have decided to offer up the digital print-at-home version of that booklet for sale via the shop for £2
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.
