Did a bit of sewing


 Since my sewing machine has seen very little fabric recently, I decided to get it out and do some sewing. Above you can see a fabric coaster I made using two pieces of fabric, which came free with a magazine. I used heat resistant wadding in the middle and quilted the top. It's not perfect but I like it.


Also made two more baby kimonos for the Bonnie Babies charity. The only thing I find very fiddly is sewing the Velcro pieces, which are so tiny. Really please I got some sewing done again. Hope you have a great weekend.

  3. like the fabric coaster, it's something I think I might even be able to do (maybe without the fancy quilted top!)
    And the kimonos are adorable - Hope you have a great weekend Anesha.

  8. The coaster was a great way to use up the freebie fabric and the little kimonos are gorgeous. I bet they get snapped up when they go on sale.
