I started this little project, couldn't put it down and got it done quick smart. Loved the shape of the pears and had been wanting one of my own ever since Elyte made hers. I decided to raid my stash of reds and shirtings. It is a Gail Pan design.
some borders and some simple quilting and it will be a lovely wall hanging.
her blog... of course I wanted to have a go. The instructions were great to follow and mine didn't turn out too bad. My major issue was the stiffening I used was not firm enough. Note for next time...
Today I got around to making the little closer that goes around the button. I ended up crocheting mine as when I tried to sew it I had to undo numerous times. Not as perfect as Susan's but practise makes perfect!
they are so pretty as they are but I had something else in mind for them.
the little bucket one got done too -they were on sale at bed bath and table last easter and I snapped up a few of them too. I so need to get my hands on some more bunnies! luckily they are getting some more in next week.
I haven't made this pattern before but it was very enjoyable and easy to follow. I think it was a freebie from the Coats website. If anyone is interested I can fish out the pattern again and get the details.
Hope there has been some crafting in your weekend too.
