When I first discovered Kerri’s first book “Lovely Little Patchwork” from Tuva Publishing this spring, I fell in love with her vintage-y patchwork and her raw-edge applique.
So I was super excited to be part of Lovely Little Patchwork Blog Tour!
It was hard to choose where to start first but my little girl wanted mama to make her this lemonade mini for her dolly play.
My fabric choice was Minny Muu collection by Lecien Fabrics. I’ve saved these colorful fun fabrics for today!
In her book, she made a Lemonade Jug Rug. I enlarged the size so I can also use as a snack mat.
And I added “Sale” at last because my lemonade stand wasn’t placed on the center, so I had to be clever.
By adding the little sign on the right side, it was problem solved! 😉
And my little Claire and her lemonade stand lived happily ever after.
*the rubber bands in the cup supposed to be lemonade. 😉
My next attempt was to make this sweet Cherry Potholder.
My first big mistake was to start making hexies without reading the instruction carefully.
It was too late when I found out my hexies are way too big.
So again, I put my sneaky girl’s pants and started to adjust the design.
I would like to say, if anybody make a mistake like me, don’t waste your hexies and turn them into a flower. 😉
And the last but the very important touch was adding the words you would hardly forget,
Lovely Little patchwork.
I hope you enjoyed my makes and laugh out loud. 🙂
Here’s the full schedule of the tour, make sure to visit the other makers to see their fabulous creations.
