I just love this chicken fabric with the red. And I love the effect that having a different the pocket fabric gives.
Here's a different set. I don't know, but I'm sure there's at least one grandma in my guild with a grandson who will like Bob the Builder.
And here are the ones I made using the envelope technique put forth by Gail. (Thank you.) The biggest problem was that it wasn't so easy to attach the pocket that way. I like the technique though. By the way.... there's a pocket on this pattern, for those of you who didn't catch that in the first post.
Judy, yes, the satin stitch does seem to help it sit a bit flatter.
AllyJo, the directions for making postcards are here, but I'm going to try to send you one, too. And I'm glad you liked your package. :D Have fun.
Howdy, yes it is a lot of thread. But I have a different opinion on fabrics and thread then most people do. I am at the point where I absolutely can not buy anymore fabric or thread. I have no where to store it for one, and it's not in my budget for two. The only option left is to use what I have, and to enjoy the process instead of hoarding it. (But it's not much more work than a regular binding for me.)
Barb, thank you for the reminder. I know that. I think one day, I'm going to write it on my machine "can you see it from a galloping horse?" Maybe then I'll remember that the quilt police are banned. LOL
I think that's all I have to say today. I'm really getting into the swing of sewing again. It's becoming theraputic. :D
