I cheated on my Destiny with another sewing machine!

I am sick and tired of organizing.  Oh, I’m not done yet, just tired of it.  And my machine is still at the spa.  I couldn’t stand it any longer.  I cut out some fabric.

I decided to make a smallish project.  I wasn’t sure how my Project Runway backup sewing machine would do, and I didn’t want to bite off more than it could chew.  I just happened to have a 24″ pillow form sitting around, and some fabric from the new Tidal Lace collection by Windham Fabrics.

I was inspired by an adorable quilt pattern called Making Waves, on the See How We Sew blog.  You can see the pattern here https://seehowwesew.wordpress.com/patterns/

I used the templates for one of the beach balls.  The curves in the waves and sand were made by stacking the fabric and cutting freehand curves.

The back has a lapped zipper.  Somebody’s bound to slobber on it at some point.  Gotta be able to wash it.

It sure helped out my symptoms of withdrawal.  And I gained a newly refreshed admiration for my Destiny.  I have fallen in love with my dreamy machine.  But I need it back, or I might not be held accountable for what happens next.

Stay crafty, my friends.
