…I mean, sweet!
The latest issue of Inspiring Country Threads magazine landed on my doorstep this morning, it’s the patchwork edition and features my “Life is sweet” sewing-machine cover pattern.
What do you think?
I described it to one of my friends as: “a bird who has swallowed an Ohio block!”
The method is called reverse-applique, and involves attaching a shape behind a cut out rather than stitching to the front.
It can be found in the newsagent’s now… Vol 14 No 3. The pattern will be available in PDF format real soon!
I love the way magazines photograph the projects, they make it look so effortless with their perfectly positioned props. I thought I’d have a go at an artsy attempt. The idea was that the shadow of the vines on the back wall would emulate the branches that the bird is sitting on. Hmm… I think I’ll stick to designing sewing machine covers!!
I was back in my comfort zone with the colours in this project, they’re right where I’m at! Do you cover your sewing machine to protect it from dust and keep it pretty? I’d love to see!
Till next time!
ps. I’m playing around with using a grey font in my blog posts at the moment – do you prefer the grey or pink? I can’t make up my mind!
