I should have been doing so many other things this afternoon, but I couldn't resist the temptation to play. This little zipped purse is the result. I seem to be in crazy patchwork mode at the moment! The fabrics are some of the bits I have left after sev
My big sister is setting off on a cruise today. On Sunday she told me that she could do with something to put her travel documents in. I adapted the method of my A5 notebook design to make her this. It has the cover of an old A5 notebook inside. The desig
Cushion cover to use up some jelly roll strips left from a quilt. Each block was pieced, appliqued, backed, quilted and joined in the hoop. Next step will have to be to use this technique to make a whole quilt!
I had a brainwave at silly o'clock this morning and came up with these A5 notebook/diary covers. They are made in two hoopings, lined, no raw edges inside and with only the tiniest bit of hand or machine sewing to finish.
This is my second sketch book/artist's companion. I'm not 100% chuffed with it but I think the friend I've made it for will like it. The pockets on the inside for pencils etc were done in the hoop. The design on the front is from Urban Threads. It has
I've been working on this one for ages. The outside is hand stitched (English paper pieced with 2cm hexagons.) The left hand panel (with the pockets) is made ITH and has spaces for a small notebook, pencils and other bits and pieces. The large pocket on

Table runner pieced and quilted in 4 sections and joined in the hoop. I added the back on the sewing machine. I didn't have quite enough left of the six fabrics from the placemats to do what I really wanted, but I am quite pleased with this.
I've been improving on some of the designs I digitised when I first started. The grandparents of these two were in DBC! I think the method of construction is now much easier than in the originals. Both of these designs are now available from Engineere
Crazy patchwork placemats and coasters. I had a pack of six Christmas fat quarters so I decided to make placemats by the "stack and whack" method. I quite like how they turned out, but I need a matching runner now for the middle of the table! (And a muc
I was asked by an elderly (male) friend if I could make something for his great niece for Christmas. I asked him how old she is and what she likes and all he could tell me was "about 3"! So I decided a fat pink bear might fit the bill. I've been doodli
