People often ask me where I get my inspiration. Mainly I get it from my garden with all the pretty colors, textures, and shapes.
I have a huge stash of pre-Mistyfused Fabrics sorted by color and polkadots
I started with a piece of linen that was over dyed by Wendy Richardson QT studio. I am using the backside for my background. The face is made out of an old double wedding ring block and I really like how it looks
And all the pretty flowers!
The view from my design table in my studio
I decided to back this with another piece of the same fabric. I fused it onto the back.
A little garden inspiration!
I also frayed the left side to match the other three sides. Then I actually free motion quilting around every object to prepare it for hand embroidery.
A view from the sewing machine that hasn’t been turned on since last July. I admit I had some challenges just turning it on and playing with the bobbin, but I got it to work and I got it done!
I also spent some time mending some of the sleeves on my linen shirts. Patching and more patching on this one which is my oldest CP shades shirt. I don’t want it to wear out
This is an old J Crew linen shirt and patched it with this floral piece. There are several little holes around this area but I’m just gonna leave those for right now
#the100dayproject features my portable sewing kit that I use for projects, like what I just made
I love that the boxes snap together easily and you can see thru them
