Hi dear friends! I hope you are fine and enjoy the weekend! I’m busy as you can see from my flowers; bought them many days ago and still their are waiting to get proper pots.
Last weekend I left all the other works to sew something colourful. I wanted to make something for my dear friend and thought that pillow could be the best choise.
For the beginning I chose carefully one cat with her favourite colours. Lots of other fabrics and colours changed their places until I ended up with these…
For the quilting I wanted something else than lines and squares and I made big heart template to surround the cat.
This time I picked threads that are a little bit thinner than Perle cotton no 8. I felt that I had better colours in these.
To quilt some other shapes, I used my Christmas coocie moulds. I draw the lines with disappearing marker. Mine disappears very quickly so I draw only few lines, stitch them and draw again. Remember to test your markers always before using on your project to be sure they work as you like. Wouldn’t be nice if the lines didn’t leave at all.
If you use something like a plate or bowl you can mark around with the hera marker, too.
For the backing I used blue fabric which reminds me of Marimekko and that’s nice for my friend, too. Simple folded backing and sik sak around.
I hope my friend likes this pillow and that it gives her happy thoughts.
I’m joining the ‘Scraptastic Tuesday’ with Leanne and Nicky,
