Gifted


Here are a few things that I made as gifts that I never got around to blogging...

A teapot eyeglass pouch for my Mom. She really likes the cherry fabric :o)



A lemon potholder for a friend. This was the first time I did curly quilting and it was super fun but things got a bit crazy at times!



A scarf for Claire's friend. I didn't have any fleece so I used flannel for the backing. It's not often you'll see me use hot pink and purple!



And Claire's first fusible web applique project. I helped her a bit with the ironing and sewing but it was her first time using a real sewing machine. She had fun sewing the stars with my Elna. She was quite proud of her finished coaster and I was quite proud of her!



And please check out my online trunk show over at Patchwork Posse by clicking the button below...

Enjoy your afternoon tea & quilted crafts :o)

  13. I love the curly quilting. I need to do more of that. I forget how cute it is. But it is somewhat hard to control. The teapot case is amazing. I adore it.

  16. Ciao,
    è bello vedere i tuoi lavori, peccato che ultimamente tu non abbia molto tempo per il blog... ;)

    Complimenti alla tua piccola, se prende le orme della sua mamma, farà delle grandi cose! Ma tu non sei in apprensione quando usa la macchina per cucire? Io avrei sempre un pò di paura... Lo so che prima o poi devono poter far da soli, anche le cose più "pericolose"...

    A presto, spero
    ciao ciao
    Chiara
