3 4 13
A little pouch thingamy whotsit to store Important Things for a niece.
A cushion cover for someone who is mad about V W camper vans.
I used the free pattern on Tula Pink's blog and made one slight addition.
I added a name plate...
...of the intended recipient.
Which is not to say this idea would work if you were making this for a Stephanie or a Francesca or any other long girls' names for that matter.
The back is an extremely tactile Anna Marie Horner velveteen.
And my third make of 2013 is really a finish off from the previous year.
It was a great way to showcase big print fabrics.
I also used it as an opportunity to try out various free motion quilting design ideas in each of the squares.
The back is fairly pedestrian but is in line with my new modus operandi of using up what is to hand.
When I posted a picture of my sewing room a while back, there was a comment left by someone that it looked like a scene from The Hoarders. I don't think we get that this side of the Atlantic but I knew instantly what she meant.
I can't disagree with that and aim to remedy the situation throughout this year.
Here's to 2013, the year of being thrifty.
