Hello and welcome to another make it Monday! Here is my quilted tea cosy i made last week :) i used some lovely Michael Miller polka dot fabric, with light blue cotton lining. After some failed attempts and snapped sewing machine needles it finally came together! I also used wadding or batting, not sure which it is? to make it nice and padded, it was also the first time i've done quilting and i'm really pleased with the effect.
So i gave it to my nana as a present to use with her pretty teapots and she loved it :)
After feeling the quilt bug, i purchased a pattern to make some quilted bags and accessories, here is what i'm making at the moment for a friends birthday this weekend ...
i've never followed a sewing pattern before, so it's all learning! hopefully it will turn out ok? :)
And lastly, don't laugh... here is one of my many attempts at crocheting i have been doing over the weekend? i don't know how to make it straight, it keeps getting shorter on every row? hmmm... i'll figure it out soon enough!
