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.
