Wow! It looks amazing, Dee!
I may have some butterflies. I put some in my last applique project that had the squirrels.
Those should be a good seller. I love little bags. I have several that have been gifts for being a retreat hostess. Now that I'm getting several of my quilt tops quilted, I have lots of binding to do. I have put thread, needles, little scissors, and clips in 3 of them to go with the quilts until I get the binding done. Very helpful.
Glad you completed your tasks at the house. I know it is a relief for you. Hope it rents out quickly. Now you can get back to your sewing and quilting with all the things you need in one place.
Cute zipper bags! Sometimes you just want to work on something different. I've been making a few too--just for fun. I got a bunch of zippers from amzon an they were cheap enough so I didn't fuss if I messed up. Yours look so perfect. My first few wer a bit messy looking, but geting better.
definitely know what you mean. as soon as my forever binding is done I'm going to make some I spys. I counted.60 x 70 = 260" length. with a loop every half inch = 520 loops x 3 knots for each = 1560 knots. sigh. I've got a rhythm down but it's still slow going. I turned the corner and made it about 15 inches last night before our air conditioning died. sigh again. Guess I'm moving my computer into our addition (separate AC) until it's repaired.
Here's an idea I found from a guild friend who also collects novelties. 4.5" & 2.5" squares. very easy. You can lay it out a variety of ways, but I liked the zigzag she did here.
thanks Ami. A couple of ladies in the local guild had something appropriate, so I'm good for butterflies now.
hmm, I took my Christmas quilt to one of my guild meeting s this morning to work on the binding. Lady sitting next to me said I should have just used ric rack - ok it does look a little like that if you just glance at it. Then I showed the quilt during show & tell.... silence. But the lady who got up after me and showed a machine applique paper doll quilt got oohs and ahhs. hmmmmm. I'm rethinking this quilt show thing. bunch of cretins.
I am so impressed with the amount of work you are putting into that binding. It will be spectacular!
Love the idea you posted. It will go into my Pintrest folders. I think I made something like it some time ago, but I have more than enough novelties to do another.
