I was asked by someone if I could make their friend a tea pot cozy that looks like the Death Star.
I totally was up for the challenge.
I Googled an image of the Death Star and was all prepared to hand stitch with embroidery thread when I decided to try that whole free motion quilting thing again. Here’s an Instagram of things in progress.
I wasn’t happy with the bias tape I had on hand so I have to run out tomorrow but it’s one step away from completion.
I’m super happy with how it turned out. I Googled some measurements and went with the largest size. Fits my tea pot perfectly so I hope it works for them! Can’t wait to hear what they think of it!
I’m completely and utterly enjoying my Craftsy Patchwork Quilt as You Go class, it’s ridiculously fun and informative.
I’m still working on my bag but I was looking through the mountain of scraps that was laid out in my workspace and I glimpsed this girl and was insipired to use the techniques to whip up a scrappy cup cozy.
I even got brave and tried some free motion quilting outlining on the girl and unicorn. I wasn’t very precise wiht it, just wanted to sort of go around the outline and big features. It’s such a cool effect. It didn’t take long to quilt some straight lines and free motion parts but boy does it make a big difference on the cozy. Sort of turns it into a little one of a kind work of art!
I think I may have found a new favourite quick and scrap busting project!
