Of course I had to try out the interfacing technique using denim!
I got this little Kindle for Christmas and thought I'd make a cover to protect it from the daily battering it has been receiving on my commute. It's a snug fit made snugger by the big snaps/poppers (thanks Maggie!). I'll try a zip closing next time……….

I've been thinking about making smaller pieces of patchwork for a while now. I enjoyed making the denim crazy patchwork quilt (see previous post), but man, it was hard work on my neck and shoulders! So I looked into miniature patch working techniques on good old You Tube and came across a brilliant technique that enables you to sew up patchwork in no time at all. I tried it in some printed cottons and here are the results……
|First I attached the patches to fusible interfacing.|
|Next I stitched one set of seams,|
|then I stitched the remaining seams.|
|Here's the finished result!|
Mmmmm I wonder if it would work with denim?
