The flimsy from my previous post will have these added around the outside, which will result in the overall size increasing by about 12. That brings it to a size that's more to my liking. AND - the biggest bonus out of all this? My drawer that was crammed full of 'fodder' has been reduced by at least half. Woo hoo!!!!
Once I get these added to the original the next step will be cobbling together a backing from my stash. I have something in mind that I want to use up but I fear it's too small. Might have to do more than cobble! I have talked myself out of taking it to a longarm quilter and plan to tackle it myself. It will be pretty plain quilting but at least it's cheap!
I haven't had much time lately to work on the 'Making Space' Challenge but I did come across two bags of paper pieces that would be good for crafting (or for those who scrapbook) so they're heading down to the laundry room to bless someone else. With the kids being off school due to the pandemic perhaps they might have fun with it. That brings my total to 48 items.
- I know Easter is a ways off, but THESE caught my eye and I thought they would be fun to make between now and then.
- THIS is a cute and quick project to make for Valentine's Day (what you put inside is up to you!).
- Have a look at the detail on THESE!!!
- And the work that THIS artist does is amazing.
