This is for Marco —
|Needs a good iron, I see!|
I found a panel in my cupboard and decided it would make a perfect pillowcase for my 6 year old nephew. Of course it wasn't the right size so a bit of creative patchwork was needed!! They are a beach-y fishing family so I'm hoping it will go down well.
One question though - I sewed French (enclosed) seams on the main edges so it wouldn't fray etc...however, of course where I did patchworking stuff there were a whole lot of exposed seams - I topstitched to try and pin them down and prevent too much fraying - but I was wondering what other people do in this situation?? I would love it to be used and used without falling apart!!
I need to post the pillowcase off today as Marco's birthday was last week (you're a bit slow this year, Aunty Raewyn!) Also going into the post today will be these blocks to Cat for The Quilts for Christchurch Kids - a couple of stars and some pinwheels. Fun to make and going to a good cause.
And last but not least here are the latest Catalicious blocks (months 7 and 8), which I've finished this month. I understand there's just one month to go of these. They've also been great fun to do and I'm looking forward to getting them all together.
