I 'm making something
I 'm making something that I haven't seen on any other blogs, I made my own pattern for these and they are just too cute! I'll be putting a tutorial together for these right after I get back from the COF quilting retreat, which is a fast approaching. So if you are looking for something creative to make for yourself, group of friends or as gifts this just might be it. I wanted to make gifts for all 70 of the ladies attending this retreat. Now, 70 is a BIG number when you only have a few weeks to do this. I do not like making things for people unless I think they will actually use it, other wise it just gets tossed or sits on a shelf somewhere to add to the clutter. Now, how do you make something for that many people and not spend a bundle, but make something that doesn't look like it came from the $ store. You make it yourself, and personalise it. I can't go into any more detail right now or I might give it away, but be on the look out because around the end of April first of March I have a nice tutorial to share with all. I'm sure you can change this up and add your own little touch to it and make it your own, but remember I'm on crunch time and have 70 to make so I'll show you my basic pattern. I drafted a pattern and then sewed one together for a trial...errrr... made some adjustments, tried again, still not uqite right, but the third time was a charm. So, hope you will like it, and make some for all your family and friends.
