Disorderly Threads so I made one for Matthew, not too sure what he thought of it. Even boys need little bags to keep things in. The bag was made ITH, even the zip with no raw edges anywhere. Just a little bit of hand sewing where you turn the bag. This bag was done in a 5 x 7 inch hoop and was quite a good size. I have bought some different bag designs for the 6 x10 hoop which I hope to do soon.

To ThisWhen I first saw the picture of the Sprocket Pillow, all I knew was that I wanted to make one. This is my idea of a Sprocket Pillow. After I thought about it for a while I decided that my old foot stool from the patio could do with an overhaul. I remembered that I had some pieces that I had not used in another project from many years ago. I was going to cut the points off to make the top curved but then the piece would not be big enough for the pillow I wanted to make. This is when I decided to add another piece of fabric so then I could curve the top. I put the blue fabric pieces on a piece of paper and cut a pattern for the red triangle pieces. After I stitched the all pieces together, I then put batting on the back and quilted it and made it up as a normal cushion. I made this from pieces in my stash, even the covered button for the centre. I always feel I have achieved something when I make something that I don't have to buy anything else for.

Not too sure if I will try this again. I need a lots and lots of practice.

Every year our patchwork group has a challenge and this year we where given a fat quarter to make something. I was given the green piece which I used in the owl pot holder. The pattern for the pot holder came from Embroidery Garden and it is made In the Hoop.
I love that there is place to put your hand when you need to pick up something hot.
