I've been indulging myself this week making this little (approx 20 x 20 inches) wall hanging. It was really enjoyable to make and it used up a few bits of my collection of fabrics with sewing notions on them.
It evolved gradually as I decided, stage by stage, how I would make each part and I used gold thread to machine embroider across the machine to look similar to the images on vintage machines. I left the little piece of Liberty fabric loose as work in progress and I found a piece of black and gold filigree patterned fabric to appliqué as the stitch control.
It was a happy play and I'm pleased at how it turned out.
It has been production line time here this week with no time wasted.
I made 20 little boxes to hold the brooches made by the ladies in our group for our forthcoming event and I also finished off several little vintage style notebooks.
I found some Star Wars Fabric in Bob's Craft & Quilt shop in Marshside, Southport and I also bought some Super Heroes to please the little girls.
Craft & Quilt does mail order if anyone is interested.
I ended up making 14 shoe bags as I just had to make one of each character's picture.
A satisfying result for the week especially as I also managed to make good headway with my French Braid Quilt and had a couple of days out too.
