In an attempt to trawl through old photographs to make a scrap book of ” items that I have made” I have come across a few gems. Most can be filed under Vintage and many can be filed under ” did I REALLY wear that?”and
There are a few gems and including this Clothkits jacket that I made for my daughter in about 1986. This was a quilted jacket with a zoo theme. There was even mini stuffed animals in the pockets. Clothkits still exists as a company but with a slightly different format. The garment was printed onto the fabric and it was a matter of just cutting it out and sewing. I loved this jacket and Darling Daughter still remembers it with fondness.
First published on Woolymoss.comThis “Heart of Hearts” felt appliqué cushion has joined the ranks as a finished project. I first purchased this kit by Michaela Smith during my visit to Yarndale last year. The kit was of good quality English Felt. I hand stitched the whole cushion cover using mainly blanket stitch. Most of the individual squares were made whilst I was on a cruise in December. It was an ideal travel project as it was broken down into small manageable pieces.
I wasn’t too pleased with how I worked the Felt squares together at the corners. This is where the buttons come in as I used them to disguise the untidy corners. So onwards we go! Bring on the next project! Maybe I should continue to work through my pile of un finished objects.
