May Sew Fun

This was an interesting month with a new educational consultant – fancy name for a demonstrator.    Here is a cute baby cuddly made. with Minky.   There was a pattern for a frog, pig,  dog and cat.   The head is stuffed with fiberfill so the child can hug it or have the blanket around them.   If I were to make this, I think I’d enlarge it just a bit so it would be usable for a few more months.

    She showed several quilts made from the book Simply Fat Quarters which were fast and easy.

One book she had, Sew On the Go. was patterns for making a bag for your cutting board, a bag for your long ruler,  various bags to carry other sewing equipment to a class including this cute bag.

 Interestingly enough this flag is made from cutting tubes according to a pattern and sewn right sides together, then turned and adhered to a backing.   The tubes were stitched on and quilted .    This is easer than it looks.   Oh and if the points don’t come out exactly right in the center, no worries, just embellish with a button.
