Scrap Happy- May 2016

I have been having such a great time with my fabric scraps. First of all I made a ball for a  new baby.

Newburgh priory April 2016 006

I have seen patterns for this in at least two books, including Patch by Cath Kidston. Next I made a birth congratulations card.

27.4.16 016

I had everything I needed for this card. The pram is made of scrap of lace.  The idea for this came from a book called Handmade Gift Cards By Cheryl Owen, details https://www.amazon.co.uk/Handmade-Gift-Cards-Step-

I am continuing with the hexie quilt, and although I have plenty of hexies left I need some more variety in the fabric. So I need to get stitching some of the projects in my to do list.

  1. I just adore scrappy things. They remind me of my Grandma!

  2. I’ve made baby balls in the distant past. I used to put a few large beads in a film canister (do you remember those?) to make a rattle and then embedded it in the stuffing in the ball. The balls I made were done with six gussets instead of hexagons.

    I know what you mean about needing more variety in your scraps. :- )

    • Yes I do remember those canisters, so useful for lots of things, and what a good idea to use them to make a noise. I should need to think about how to do that with something else!

  3. Yay for scraps! That is what quilting is all about, making the most of all the little pieces!

  4. Your hexie quilt is coming on a treat 🙂

    Thanks for visiting to look at my scrappiness. I love the fabric in your baby ball, so retro and the card is so sweet. As for your hexies…..amazing.

  6. Your hexie quilt is looking pretty. How big are you wanting it to be when it’s finished or will you just carry on until you run out of scraps – as if that will ever happen 😉 My hexie making started off well and then fizzled out. I was making them in a ‘vintage look’ Moda fabric but it would be easy to mix in scraps of the right sort of ‘look’. I doubt I’ll ever make enough to make a quilt, however, maybe a cushion cover

  7. Apart from the fabrics just bought for my workshops, all my stash seems to consist of are scraps! These are great ways to use them up.

  8. Love you makes, the card is so cute!! X

  9. I always love seeing what you do with your scraps. So clever and always lovely. The card is so cute and great to see the hexies growing 🙂
