On Sunday, I also had some sewing time and, managed to get some cute little projects finished. I made some little egg cosies to match the tea cosy I made recently.
I appliqued a flower/heart to the piece of fabric for the front of the egg cosy, finishing it with a small machine zig-zag stitch. The fabrics I used were Tilda. I think they look really cute sitting on their egg cups!!
I also stitched up a small fabric basket. For this I basically machine stitched fabric (Tilda) scraps to a piece of background batting. I then made it into a basket by sewing the two shorter sides together to form a tube. Moved the seam to the back and stitched across the bottom and then squared off the two bottom corners. The same was done to a piece of lining fabric and the two then joined together by sitting the outside inside the lining (right sides together) and stitching round the top edge. It was then turned the right way out and the lining pushed down into the basket. The top edge was then turned back down over the top edge to form a rim.
I decided it might look nice to add a piece of ribbon to the rim, so I cut a small piece of ribbon and appliqued it in place. I am pleased with how it has turned out.
Hope you all had a nice weekend and, have a lovely week!! x
