This custom bumper pad was made using the stripe from a previous window drape. The red ties and piping were made from the drapery valance fabric and new gray minkee fabric was used for the inside of the bumper pad. The padding is 1″ polyester quilt batting. This pad will match the roman shade shown in a previous post. These two bumper pads took about 9 hours to make, due to the time involved in repurposing used fabric.
NOTE: It is important not to use bumper pads until the baby is old enough to turn over or move away from the pad!
My beautiful customer gave me permission to share this photo of her bedroom. She is legally blind and she can see the bold, vibrant colors used in decorating her bedroom by her sister. I was commissioned to create the duvet cover and bed skirt for this queen size bed. The work included making 14.5 yards of piping which is used around the color block and completely around the duvet cover. The color block will eventually be decorated with applique art by the customer. I used velcro as the closure at the bottom of the cover. It does not interfere with the decorative effect of the piping.Time to make these two items was about 14 hours. (The duvet was not yet in the cover at the time of this picture.)
These are Easter gifts for our guests living at the church this week! Hope this will help ‘make their day’!! Pillow cases were donated by Camilla and Rob Sloan.
Today I embroidered 10 polos for the FFH Golf Marathon this coming Monday!
Last fitting of the umbrella to the mast. This has been an interesting experiment and I like it! This umbrella is 8 sections that are 55″ wide at the bottom edge – miles and miles of sewing. There are three sections that overlap to let the air flow. I really liked the old one and this one looks like it will fit just fine!!
Doing a little thread art on the patchwork skirt.
Here is my contribution for the day – hoping to model it later:) I got this idea from Jay McCarroll and his Kitchen Sink Patchwork Skirt model
First row of quilt is ready! I need to built a project board. Perhaps with pvc pipe and stretched canvas. Anyone made one before?
Come on by and let me help you design a unique label for your special quilted creation!
The third block is finished! The brown material under the block is going to be the quilt backing. I included the jelly roll I’m using from modafabrics.com. This is called Wrens and Friends designed by Gina Martin. I love how it complements the embroidery design. The embroidery is really easy to do using the excellent tutorial that comes with the design.
