Last week I cut out lots of little paper squares followed by lots of little fabric squares. The paper was tacked onto the fabric and then I handstitched them all together and came up with this. A Patchwork dog-- modelled here with M who is wearing the Bat suit he got last Halloween! The dog is a little bit bigger than I imagined but I'm quite happy with him. Maybe if I do another I'll make it a bit smaller though.
Hub wanted to know why I didn't use my sewing machine but to be honest sometimes I find hand stitching quite theraputic.
I was reading Flossie Teacakes Blog and she said she had been buying fabric from Buttonberry.
I went to have a look at their website and that was it I was hooked. On Saturday this arrived through the post
Well worth it
I do have plans for this,doing some applique but I'm going to practice on some other material first as I've never done it before. Tess has been giving me some tips and I think I'm going to be ok with it- well I hope so anyway.
I,m also wanting to knit this for Baby G
with this wool
Looks like it's going to be a busy few weeks....
