Mom is the hero of the quilt block wall hanging. My contribution was to design and cut it. Like I mentioned, I am a clueless sewer.
Here is a close-up of her stitching. Click the photo for an even closer view.
And here's an outline of how it was put together.
- Print the images on copy paper from My Digital Studio
- Trace images on fusible web, iron onto the backside of the fabric, and cut out images
- Iron fabric/fusible web onto the muslin square, and machine stitch around images with an applique stitch
- Add features, such as the tail and wing, by hand sewing with embroidery floss. Mom used a French Knot and Stem Stitch.
- The border was created by cutting a binding and folding in half. There was more detail here (insert clueless-me).
- Attach the striped ribbon to the back with a running stitch.
The Cute 'n Cubby project was created with the tutorial from Card a la Carte.
I can't share the tutorial here, but I can tell you it takes nearly one fat quarter of fabric. It must be pretty easy if I made my way through it! And it folds flat for easy travel to shoebox swaps.
I created these Cute 'n Cubbies for my roommates at Leadership as well, using Springtime Vintage fabric.
