I'm very happy to be back today after quite an absent week last week (day jobs got on top of me!) sharing with you all my latest crafty adventures :) First up is this fun tea-cosy, I've had it in my head for a while so it's great to get it finished up! The apple and pear fabric is a Kokka print that I've been hoarding for far too long, yayy so pleased to see it put to good use at last! and the red/white polka dot is an old Timeless Treasures fabric, it's one of my 'go-to' prints that I love using again and again. I really love how it turned out, I think it has a cute kitschy feel to it, which is what I'd hoped for ;) I will be sharing a tutorial on how to make it sometime soon, so check back soon!
If you follow me on Instagram (@messyjesse1) you'll know I've been a busy bee working on my granny sqaure quilt. Today I managed to get it basted, quilted and sorted out my binding :D I've been putting it off for far too long, I was super scared putting it to work on my machine but I think I'm overcoming my original nerves because it's turning out quite nicely. I got to use my extension table for the first time, I love it and it's perfect for a project like this! Do you like my backing fabric and binding choices?? It took much deliberation, as you can imagine! I hope you are all having a great start to the week, speak soon. xo
