Scrappy Letter K Tutorial

My experiments a few years back on sewing letters of the alphabet using scraps , has received continued interest, which means I am not alone in my love of scrappy sewing ideas!  A recent inquiry about whether there is a pattern for making them, led me to choosing to share a tutorial on how I made my letter K.  I hope you find it helpful!  Now let's use some scraps...

Pink Bee Blocks - April and May

I have been enjoying participating in two different online quilting bees this year.  It's my first time taking part in a quilt bee (of any kind!), and now I fully understand the appeal - the chance to sew with friends (old and new!).

Low Volume Scrappy Zipper Pouch

My favourite patchwork is scrappy. Pair that with the delight I have in re-purposing items and you end up with a sweet zipper pouch!

Tiny scraps pieced together to make a wee butterfly on a background of near white fabrics and quilted onto a  remnant of batting, make the front panel of a zipper pouch.

I chose low volume (fabric that reads as white) scraps, to sew onto a leftover piece of quilt batting. After piecing, I did some straight stitch quilting and then cut a front and back panel for the pouch.

Rainbow Bee - Scrap Jar Star Block

Prior to moving at the end of April, I was happy to sew a couple of rainbow coloured, scrappy quilt blocks for the second quilt bee I joined this year.  The block is called Scrap Jar Star and Amber at Gigi's Thimble, has a wonderful tutorial (click here), for making them.

It's a Keeper!

Looking for a cute way to keep small items organized? 

My Mini Back Pack Coin Purse & Key Chain features a key ring and a swivel hook for use in clipping it to a larger bag or using it as a key chain! This new version uses alternative materials for the body and straps, without sacrificing the cute factor.

Gifted in Pink

Needlebook made from some of my favourite Tilda fabrics.

It's no secret! I love sewing gifts for others. It is one of my favourite ways to show a little of love.  Planning what to make and selecting just the right fabrics to suit the recipient, always makes me happy as I think about the person I am sewing for.  It's even more exciting when the gift IS a secret!
