They say if you keep something long enough it will be used. A few years ago my daughter gave me a 1/2 metre of fabric she had bought from Ebay. She said she didnt know what I could use it for but she liked it so bought it for me.
Cute isnt it.
Now I have used it ! This month at Sew This and That’s Sewing club we made a jacket/garment cover. It was the perfect fabric to use.
I also had a piece of shoe fabric which I used for the lower section.
With the leftover piece I made a coathanger to use inside the cover. The cover looks crooked because I needed to take it on an angle tonight. The sides are actually the same length. (hopefully a better pic in daylight).
It also has a hidden pocket inside, and I used another shoe fabric for it. That means 3 pieces of fabric have left my stash, and have been used.
I hear people talking about having 2 machines going at the same time. At the weekend I did just that. On one machine I was making this
lace to be used in a project I am finishing at a class on Thursday.
while at the same time I was appliquing flowers on the blocks of my second Bliss quilt.
Here are the blocks with the first flower appliqued on. There will be 6 flowers.
