Stitching Gifts for Sewing Friends

1 Dec
Great gift for you stitching friends.

Great gift for you stitching friends.

Do you have handmade gifts planned for your sewing friends? Locked in my mind forever are these words from my lovely mother Annette “if I can’t eat it, wear it or spend it I don’t want it!” LOL. To this end I created this little Scissor Holder Needle Minder combination. Hope you can fit in plenty of stitching with your Christmas preparations.

Do you recycle? Here is a project for you!

29 Oct

So, do you recycle?  For several years now I have been addicted to working with felted wool in my quilting projects.  Without a Local Quilt Shop close enough to provide the wool I want and need for my projects I have a considerable stash of recycled wool and the occasional other fabric when it is too awesome to pass up.  That’s where this Pumpkin Cushion got its start.  I couldn’t resist a skirt made of a beautiful irridescent green taffeta with a black velvet jacquard print.  Unfortunately the photo doesn’t do this beautiful fabric justice.  Die cut with my favorite Sizzix dies.  I used the Big Shot Pro Die Cutting Machine, 6″ Circle Die, Tim Holtz Movers and Shapers Die Tattered Leaves, Medium Die Flower Layers w/ Leaf #2 and a 1″ x 3″ rectangle.

Hello world! I love wool applique, do you?

29 Aug

I love all things quilting, sewing and crafts.  I have been using fusible applique shapes in my projects since 2001.  I hope you will enjoy my Die Cut applique projects.  My goal with these projects is to create works that are easy to finish in a minimal amount of them.  Perhaps you too will catch the wool applique bug and say “I want one of these projects wooly, wooly bad!”  As time permits I will put my wool applique projects on my Etsy sight at PrettyPennyPrecuts.  Happy Stitching!
