So far this year all my blogs have been about stash busting or the UKQU Book Club. This time I am sharing another stash busting idea, and a timely one at that in this time of lockdown – face masks.
The medical e…
Good morning, Nina. Thank you for doing a mask test. With all the mask patterns around on the internet it is helpful to us all that you have road tested some of them and found a final two that you like. So far I have made three masks of different designs and dismissed all of them for one reason or another. I have to make 15 for the family so want to get it right before I go into production!
Which style did you finally choose after road testing them both, fitted or pleated?
My only concern about Paula’s pattern is that four layers may make the mask a bit hot to wear.
I originally made this at a Charity Sewing Day as a ‘personal effects purse’ for patients at the local hospice. The purse would also work great as a coin purse or to keep you credit cards and receipts in. Alt…
Nina wrote a new post, Stash busting idea – circle scarf with a hidden pocket 4 months, 1 week ago
This time we are going to make a circle scarf with a hidden pocket*; great for when you don’t want to bring a handbag. The pocket is large enough to fit e.g. mobile phone, money, keys, cards or other personal es…
This is the third blog in my stash busting series and this time I’m looking at trying to use up some pre-cut and left over fabrics from other projects.
Looking at my fabrics, I found some jelly roll strips and…
With one year coming to an end and another one starting, we tend to pause and take the opportunity to look back at the year that has been. Hence this may be a good time to do a recap of the books we have read so far…
Thanks for the inspiration Corinne! I’ve made some reusable fabric gift bags this Christmas. I modified yours, by skipping the ‘threading through’ part and instead added a ribbon in one of the side seams to use for a simple knot & bow to close the bag. Happy Christmas xx
Have you got too many fat quarters gathering dust? Two of them can rather quickly be turned into a really useful little bag.
For newborns, the bag is perfect for a few nappies, wet wipes, bottle, muslin,…
When putting my hand up to be given a song title to interpret by making something quilty, I wasn’t at all sure I’d get a song title that I actually recognised; as I had never heard of some of the ones allocated ear…
I didn’t get it-too busy to keep up when Prince was in his heyday-but I love it! What a super quilt! So clever, too.
I didn’t guess it until the end! Great quilt Nina and great interpretation!!
Fantastic Nina! I love it – especially the face, and the clues. I think I got it from clue 2 – that was when I started thinking of songs that I knew with those words!
Very clever, but had no clue, still don’t. I have heard of him though.
I didn’t get it, I could on think of “send all your kisses to me”. I’m not good with lyrics or Prince . It’s beautifully executed
That is a lovely Blog Nina. Such a good interpretation, lots more kisses to you. Xxx
Loving how you have made this quilt, bet you were singing the song as you stitched along!
