A couple of years ago at Sewing Club at Sew This and That we used some of the 1 inch grid iron on base (I dont know what it is called). To make it up required what seemed like hundreds of 1 inch squares. It was good for using up the little pieces of Christmas fabrics lurking in my scrap drawer.
These little squares finish up at 1/2 inch. At least using the base made the stitching much more accurate.
I have now finished the project I decided to make using the piece.
The class project was a Christmas stocking. I decided that was too much cutting and sewing - after all I couldn't make just one when I have 6 grandchildren could I? So mine became a Christmas card compendium.
Now there will be no excuse for lost addresses, no stamps, which card to choose. It is all in one place.
