The month of June is Curvavalicious Quilts for the Island Batik Ambassadors.
We were told we could do anything with curves so here goes.
For those of you that don't know, Jeanette, from Inchworm Fabrics is my sister.
Recently we moved our mother into a little trailer right off my carport so Jeanette came for a visit.
Glad she did because she was able to go through and get rid of a lot of clothes that my mother had collected through the years.
We had discussed making something together for our June Island Batik project.
You know...two minds, twice the smoke.
She came up with the idea of tuffets.
for me it was...
So we scoured the internet and settled upon "Mini Tuffet Pinchsion" by Sew Colorful LLC, Sylvi Sealy. just click on that link and it will take you to her craftsy site.
One evening Jeanette came in from my mother's and said...you wanna go to walmart and get supplies for the tuffets? I said, sure...what time is it. She said 7:30....why not, it is early still.
We got home at 11:30.....hummmmm I said...Jeanette, thought it was 7:30 when we left...she looked at her watch and said...yes, 7:30 my time (Washington State time). Needlesss to say we got a laugh out of that one.
So we took off with our supply list.
We were able to get everything we wanted at Walmart to make small and larger tuffets.
Here is a larger one. Jeanette is so smart...she just whipped up another pattern larger than the one given to us that enabled us to make us a larger tuffet. Worked out great.
Don't you just love the tuffets???
We made the larger ones the next day while my grandson was running around the sewing room getting into stuff. Were we crazy or what?
My mother did entertain the little buggar for us so we could finish up a few more.
Every so often he would come and go UP...Up...so of course, up he came and the work stopped.
Have you ever seen such a fun sight?
She did the sewing and I did the stuffing, cutting, and gluing.
One thing that worked out good was making cardboard round pieces that matched the wooden pieces for the bottom. We glued the fabric to the cardboard round piece, put the button on and and pulled it through, then glued the wood circle over that so we could glue on the legs. Worked perfect!
Gave one small one to my mother and then we both got a large and small one.
This is what mine looks like right now..... No losing this pin cushion.
If you want, go check out my sister's blog, she is having a giveaway and so I am.
Here is what I want to give away:
One Superior Threads Fantastico #5084
One Island Batik Charm pack "BluShing Blooms"
It truly hurts to give these items away but why not share the fun RIGHT????
I do love Superior Threads, I have used them numerous times and have even ordered from them, I just happen to have duplicate of the orange thread because I loved the Fantastico line so much that I ordered me some and then Island Batik sent me some of the same not knowing.
Now the Charm pack is loaded with vibrant delicious colors, if you can put delicious onto a charm pack? Only a quilter will know and understand that comment.
Just leave a comment and do go and visit my sister.
