Vof vof, Hanna here again! What’s the best way to start new year? Making stars of course!
Teje asked me what shall we do for the first project this year and I said stars, lets make happy stars!
First we made the blue star but the oranges and pinks were calling us so much that we made second star.
We continued with the orange-pink star because it looked so delicious with the light blue fabric we had in mind for the background.
Now it’s time to tell you about the title: ‘8 is Great’! It’s the 1st challenge of “Project Quilting – Season 8”. We haven’t joined this before and were really happy to read about it. Beginning of the new year makes us want to do new things. So this challenge is to make something quilted with 8. Number eight is great even I’m not so good with numbers and prefer letters. It’s fun how many ideas we quickly found with 8. Perhaps we shall make more ‘8’ things but now about the star pouch, but hurry up, challenge for 8 is only for this week.
Our favourite, wonky star has eight points! Then we felt that we like to add 8 little squares … and 8 triangles … didn’t plan to make a Christmas tree, but it just came out! I hope you see the snowy tree or no tree at all!
When making pouches, we quilt them like we do when making mini quilts, with the wadding (or fleece) and backing. The pouch becomes soft and comfy.
It was already late evening when we were choosing and cutting the lining and making the pocket – with Moomins!
Little things and details make difference. Some jewelry supplies are great for sewing and handy tools help to add them.
Final step is to sew the binding by hand. Leather cord to pull the zipper and our pouch is ready!
Sometimes it can be boring to be a quilter-puppy. I wonder when shall we use that GO! baby? We made some birdies and bubble ages ago … can’t even remeber what is the third … now I can’t remeber how you call those ‘plates’ you put there to cut the fabric … oh, so much to remember … I think we have also diamonds. I think also that Teje should crochet a hat with that yarn because they say it’s going to snow and she’s going to feel cold when we go for a walk.
We have been really busy today; so many things to do and prepare. Nero will tell you about that soon!
We shall join also the linky parties:
Thank you for reading my post! Thank you also for your super sweet comments!
