Sleeping Bear II

Yes, its the same 'Sleeping Bear' panel as the first one. Since the first one was gone, someone suggested I make another.

Its slightly different this time, but still in the pinks :-)  I've put a solid mauve as 1st border and found a lovely pink checked as its 2nd border. It worked well together.

A lovely pastel pink backing fabric and the same mauve fabric for binding.

Made it slightly bigger than the previous one this time. Sweet for a lil girl.

I'm a proud mother

Sara, my 10 year old decided to sew one day and rummaged through my 'scrap basket'. She said, "Please teach me to use the machine mom, I want to sew something". I was ecstatic!

I guess I secretly waited for the day she would show interest in sewing :-) 

And so I thought her how. She took time and chose all the scraps she wanted, sew them together and eventually made the above pillow (18"L x 12"W), feeling very pleased with her effort.

Then her lil' sister Maya (she's 3 years) wanted one, and so she chose her own scraps and asked Sara to do one for her. Maya's lil' pillow was 14"L x 9.5"W.

Both of them wanted the same polkadot fabric for the backing and I helped them with this part. Sara's sewing is not too bad, I must say :-) She did all the sewing and ironing herself.

Here it is, my girls' project all done. I'm ever the proud mom! Sara is looking forward to start on other small projects and was very happy with her handiwork!

Animals in Fancy Car II

Yes that's right - yet another one ! My friend M saw the 1st "Animals in Fancy Cars" quilt and had asked me to do one for her - many moons ago :-) Hope she likes the colour combination on this one . . . . .

As I did previously, put 2" strips of scraps all around it. This time, I've put a 3" lite blue fabric as its first border . . . .

. . . . and finished it off with a 5" dark blue wood-like fabric. It looked wonderful together.

The backing fabric was a white with small black flowers and just love the binding fabric - a blue & red criss-cross.

Its good to go - lovely for a boy.

A Wedding Gift

My friend P makes these lovely figurines out of polymer clay and my friend A puts her creativity on the wooden stuff. So there was this lovely 7.5" X 7.5" square box we decided to play around with . . . .

So A painted the base a nice pink, painted purplish hydrangeas in a circle right in the middle at the top of the box, and we put the wedding couple there . . . .

More hydrangeas around the box and she littered it with white diamantes. The edges of the box is painted with silver.

Here's what it looks like inside . . . .

A simple, yet lovely wedding gift don't you think! Its simply adorable.

Measurement : H 2.5", a square box of 7.5" X 7.5"

My friend A's work yet again. Its decoupage & some paint & some creativity on solid wood.

The background is white and A had some decoupage paper depicting books, pencils, etc. Wordings are hers :-)

BLUE Starz

A star is born! . . . . . It started with one blue star . . . . .

. . . . . and then a few more . . . . . in different shades of blue. Over a white background.

Framed it up with a 2.5" marbled solid dark blue and a gorgeous lite 5" swirly blue fabric.

My ever loyal lite blue backing fabric (have quite a few meters of it!) and went back to the solid dark blue for binding.

I simply love this one!

Trucks & Lorries II

Sometime ago I had "Trucks & Lorries" - anyone recall? Anyway, I had some left over of the fabric and thot I'd get to it. Decided to use only 6 trucks & lorries and cut the picture up into tiny 3.5" x 4" square. Used a yellow-green swirl & bright blue fabric around it.

A very lite blue solid sashing, found a nice flowery green to bring out the green in them trucks as its 1st border and finished it off with an interesting 5" multiple green lines.

Here's a close-up of the green lines fabric .... Backing fabric was a accommodating blue and yet another shade of green for its binding.

Ta-daah! I quite like how the colour combination turned out ;-)

I love Orcas!

I think they are simply beautiful animals !

This was a fabric my friend J got from Down Under many moons ago. Bet she's forgotten about it too :-)

Again, I've cut them up and pieced them one by one. Decided on the lovely bright green to bring out the greenish mountains behind and a marbled dark blue to make it ocean-like. 
It went perfect together.

Finished it off with a matching blue polkadot fabric as its outer border, found a dark blue flowery backing fabric and went back to the bright-banana-leaf green for binding.

Turned out pretty big & squar-ish . . . . and i like it lots!

Its BIG!

And its done! :-) Remember this ? Its one of my W.I.P from last week.

I've cut up pictures of the "animals in fancy cars" (IKEA bedsheet) and cut up 2" strips from my scrap stash (seems to have plenty of 'em) to put all around it.

Added up a 2.5" solid cream as 1st border, a 3" brown as its 2nd border and a fantastic 5" multicolour fabric. Just love that fabric! It has all the colours needed.

A perfect match for a backing fabric and a dark brown for binding.

Gorgeous! I love it. Nearly covers a single bed :-)

Which is your House?

Remember the fabric? Got it thru the mail from Lynn @ I love the fabric! This is in lilac and I have another one in lite blue.

Cut it up into a 7" square and made it round-ish by clipping its corners. Decided on a solid lilac as its 1st border and a lovely bubble-gum pink polkadot as its 2nd border.

A matching backing fabric and a dye-pink for its binding.

Put lil' houses at its corners too. I'm pretty happy with the way it turned out.
