My other news is that next term I will be teaching sewing at my daughters primary school... I'm very excited about this! My daughter and I have been coming up with some small but cute little things for the kids to make. I made this little bucket pin cushion and this adorable little needle book. The pincushion bucket I will soon be putting on the blog as a tutorial.
They are super easy and quick to make so stay tuned.
The needle book pattern can be found over at nanaCompany. I love how it uses mostly little scraps you have laying about from other projects.
In other news, I have put the tumbler quilt away for now, but started sewing these little I-spy jars. I have built up quite a collection of these novelty fabrics. I look forward to using them in some of my kids quilts for BlanketLovez but this quilt will be for our family. I'm going to turn some of the blocks on their side to make it look like the jar has fallen over and some of the creatures have escaped. I've just made the pattern up as I go, so when its finally together I might even draft it as a pattern for my new shop.
Anyway, a quick post today, but hope to be back later in the week with a recipe or two.
Yours in Stitches
