Mosaic Patchwork Cushion Tutorial

Following on from camel bunting, sprocket cushions and camel toys I also used the Moroccan Bazaar fabric by The Craft Cotton Company to make a mosaic effect patchwork cushion. I would have loved to make a quilt in this pattern but it would have taken me much longer than the time I had, especially since I kept sewing the squares on wrong side around and had to spend my time unpicking – imagine how many I would get wrong on a big blanket!

Fabric was gifted by The Craft Cotton Company.

Really pleased with how the mosaic effect turned out, might have to do a few more different patterns!.

Tutorial to make this is available over on The Craft Cotton Company blog

Sewing Tutorial: Bambi Fabric Mini Tumbling Blocks Quilt

When I saw this Bambi fabric by The Craft Cotton Company I knew it would be perfect for making a quilt, I have been looking at doing a tumbling block pattern on a quilt for a while now and decided now was time to give it a go!

I have always stayed clear of the tumbling blocks as I was nervous about sewing them all together and making they all aligned together correctly. I was really surprised how it went without any major problems – ignoring the fact of I managed to sew the pieces wrong sides together instead of right sides together a few times but we can just pretend that didn’t happen!

I really like the way this has turned out and I will definitely be making another tumbling blocks pattern soon.

Sewing Tutorial: Patchwork Door Stop With Handle

I recently put together a tutorial to make a sort stop for The Craft Cotton Company using their lovely Just Bake fat quarter set.

I was fighting a loosing battle against the wind and trying to keep a door open today until I remembered I had recently made this – problem solved! It also reminded me I hadn’t got around to uploading it on here so I suppose I can’t complain about the wind too much!

Triangle Patchwork Drawstring Bag With Pom Pom Tie Details

Since my last patchwork drawstring bag I’ve been making a bit more progress through the Christmas makes. Am actually getting trough them a bit quicker than I was expecting so am hopeful I might actually get everything finished! I really want one of these bags for myself, but that will have to wait for now!

I used the very cute scotty dog fabric by The Craft Cotton Company for this one,  and can’t wait for the recipient to open it!


Pattern for this is from Love Patchwork and Quilting magazine issue 40.
