Congrats to Cary of Creative Moments by Cary, winner of last week's project linky.
Four months into the Patchwork Please sew along, it's my turn to officially share a project! It's one delightful pattern, the Sweet Trips Embroidery Pouch, one of two projects in the final Crafting section!
I made a few tweaks to personalize my pouch a bit. First up was making the vinyl pocket flap out of patchwork. I used this method to piece those 1 1/2" squares and it worked wonderfully! (Note to self to do that again!) The one thing I wouldn't do again is use fusible batt on the flap. I thought it would be nice considering I was quilting the patchwork, but it did turn out kind of thick for that space. But sewing-wise, it all worked well. And making that vinyl pocket was a piece of cake! I was a little scared of it but my machine wasn't concerned at all. I didn't need to use a larger needle, or line with paper, or use any of the other tricks of the trade.
The giveaways for linking up this week's project are 1 yard Pellon® 911FF Fusible Featherweight + a fat quarter bundle of Cloud9 iHaus.
- interfacing/batting charm sample pack from Pellon
- 5 Aurifil sample packs
- a fat 1/8th bundle of fabric from Form & Fabric
And as a bonus, I also have 6 fat-quarters of ihaus that I'm adding in, left from my Handy Market Tote.
Wow. Be sure and let our week's sponsors know how much we appreciate them!
