|Project #3, Pincushion|
What a cute little project this was!
It would be fun to make these as gifts for sewing friends!
|Project #1, Tote|
For the quilting I used the triple stitch on my old Elna sewing machine -- I think it makes the stitches almost look like hand embroidery! I had read on someone's blog (can't remember who!) about how they used a double stitch to finish off bags, and how it gives the bag a more professional look. My machine doesn't have a double stitch, but I'm happy to have found it's triple stitch. It takes awhile, but I love the look!
Fabrics are Katie Jump Rope scraps,
leftover from my Swoon quilt
(which is still not finished)!
This has been a really fun sew-along, so far.
I'd definitely recommend the book,
