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, dummy, nappy creme and a spare baby grow. When the kids get older, they love to use them…

I love making and to make to satisfy someone’s special needs and requirements is so very satisfying. Being asked to make this changing bag means a lot and I know it will mean so much to the recipients. If all the supplies had been delivered on time, I could have showed you the finished item…

CAMDEN BOWL A great way of using all those narrow pieces of wadding that you have left over when you are sandwiching a quilt. My Bowl has a circular base with a diameter of 7inches. But you can make it smaller or larger and elliptical rather than round. For this Bowl you will need 6…
