a wee break from quilting
just a for a short while........I promise!
Lisa over at Big Little posted about making hottie covers for the cold kidlets in Christchurch. So I just had a rummage through my fabrics & found the cute creamy, ever soooo soft polar fleece with sheep on it. I think this is what I used last year when I made some.
I wish you could feel how S*O*F*T these were! They were quite addictive to make. I dusted off the the over locker (serger) & got to work. In an hour tops I had six covers ready to post.
Off the sheep head to the south island. Last year I bought new hot water bottles & popped in each one, but this year they are off on their merry way as they are.
Before I get back to quilting, I can share the bag I made on the weekend for my Mum. I saw this fabric at the shop I work at part time & thought of Mum, as she LOVES pansies & purples & mauve's.
With some Matilda's Own bag batting, fabric & RicRac I came up with this bag. Designer? My mind!
Mum knits & crochets, so I am sure she can make use of this, or I guess it would make a nice hand bag.
Thanks for stopping by, I enjoy your comments. Back soon with plenty of customer quilts!
