I want to make sure and Thank Madame Samm and Jane for such a fun hop!
Thank you to Colonial Needle for being our Sponsor.
And Cyndi I can't wait to watch your tutorials and do your pattern.
And Samm's patterns are darling! I just had a new Grand daughter that will be getting something with that little girl stitched on it.
I really was excited when Samm asked me to design 2 patterns for the hop!
The cottage and Nana's chair were so fun to design.
But I have to say I had the perfect idea for Nana's Chair...
a sewing basket to sit next to mine!
I started with a basket and 3 fabrics I liked.
And I was off making an apron for the basket.
I measured from the basket top to the table for the bottom row and cut a strip 2 inches shorter for the row on top.
I ironed each strip and ironed a 1/4 inch hem on the top ruffle. And sewed rick rack on the right side.
I made binding for the edge of the bottom ruffle.
I gathered the 2 strips together and pinned them to a strip that matched the binding edge of the bottom row.
It was just like making an apron for a basket...LOL
Before sewing I slid in a crochet edging.
Wrapped it around the basket and hot glued into place.
I added batting in the top and sewed the stitchery in place for the lid.
I had made the pin cushion that matched a while ago.
All done and ready to sew!
I know its weird seeing one that isn't red work from me....
But it matched the fabric!
Here is the Cottage I am getting ready to quilt it into a wall hanging.
