Turn all of your gorgeous little stitcheries into finished ‘mini quilts’… these will become your pockets
Trim them to size and make a mini quilt sandwich – backing down first, then a piece of batting/pellon with the finished stitchery on top
Baste around the edges then add your binding. I used a single fold binding, machined to the back first
then double folded to front with a machine topstitch to finish
Make a few pockets then check with a furry supervisor. Do you think that’s enough Ratty?
He said ‘Have you seen the stuff you want to try and store in this thing????’
Righteo… I’ll make a few more…
‘how about a round one to complement the pincushion…?’
‘what are you going to store in a round one?’
‘I don’t know… that’s irrelevant… it looks nice’
When you think you have enough, or you are just tired of binding teeny little quilts, pop them aside and have a cuppa. We’ll finish it another day :)
I finally finished the top stitching on my calico tape measure. Why make a tape measure?
I started it about 24 years ago. Well probably more like six months ago… All it needed was a bit of topstitching and a couple of buttons
In it’s little house………Cute!
