Love u to pieces

This is my entry for February challenge in Desi Quilters. It was made in a hurry,  as a stress buster. Though I wish I could make a better one. (the mini quilt on the background was made 2 years back) 

First off,  I pieced the heart part from strips which I dug out from my scraps bin, and then quilted a bit with decorative stitches before attached it to the main fabric using reverse applique. Very quick n simple.

And instead of my usual envelope closure, I used zipper closure and loved the finish look.

One thing when you make cushion covers is that you make one inch smaller from the insert (cushion) size.  That will make the cushion looks fuller. 

And here 's another one I make with zipper closure

I got this fabric from my friend in Indonesia. I still have 2 more to finish similar to this one ^_^. 

Until then...

A pink duffel

One of my online friend asked me to make a duffel bag for her DD. I love making bags and pouches but usually only on request or made them as a gift. 

This duffel bag had 2 pockets on both side  and since there was barely enough fabric, I used white thick cotton (I'm not sure what was that, it's jeans kind of material) and added a cute matching pink grosgrain ribbon. 

The zipper part was a bit tricky cos I don't like an exposed zipper in a bag. So I came up with zipper lining which worked out great in this duffel bag.

I used flannel as a batting and it's double layers of batting there. And deep pink polkadots make it more fun. 

 oh and I did FMQ too, it's a good way to practice FMQ ;) 

Until then...

Happy Sewing
