As you sew, so shall you rip…
Though in this case it won’t help this block anymore…
I’ve cut the fabrics before I noticed the mistake…
Pretty silly, isn’t it?….
I’m making the blocks for Paganini, the first “Le Petit” project. It is a great one, there are 4 different ways to sew the pattern, they are all beautiful!
I read the instructions, cut the pieces, start sewing.
So far so good!
No idea what I was thinking of (perhaps nothing!) when I added the corners in the wrong position. But still enough fabric left from the Charm Pack so I could make a new block ! :-)))
Sorting the blocks:
I chose Awesome by Sandy Gervais (Moda) because I want a new wall hanging with Fall colors. My wish is to get it done for this Autumn!
The handles for the new bag are now finished.
I will show you how I inserted the thick batting inside.
First, roll the batting as tight as you can:
Use the twine to secure and tight it well:
Make a little hole with an awl or stiletto:
The hole is for the big safety pin:
Now you can start to pull through.
At this point you could ask your own hero at home, your Indiana Jones with strong arms to help you with this issue! ( My wrist had to be operated once, I’m very careful since then).
He will get it faster!
That’s how it looks like:
Pretty busy days ahead!
Wishing you a lovely and creative week!
