Welcome to day 4 of the ‘Strawberry Biscuit’ blog hop!
I can’t believe that I get to be one of them!
When I first received this sweet retro designs, I stacked them on my sewing shelf and just enjoyed them like that for a while.
How about you? Are you one to make something right away? Or are you like me, waiting until fabric inspires you?
Either way, we can never have enough fabric. *wink*
When I saw this pink strawberry print, the first thing came into my mind was making a Block Zipper Pouch. (Tutorial is here.)
And once you make something that please you, isn’t it obvious to make a second and third and so on?
I have made this block zipper pouch so many times but I always seem to give them away. I am going to try to keep these for myself this time.
However, I have a feeling that any grateful moment, this cute pouch would save me, as it is a perfect gift.
I designed two stamp sets forAltnew and they will be released the first week of May.
As soon as I got my stamp sets, I wanted to create a sweet surprise for my little girl. A little snack pouch! This Strawberry Biscuit print was perfect for it. The tutorial is from Lisa’s 1st book, A Spoonful of Sugar (from Fons&Porter)
I haven’t decided what to put inside. It is always hard to think about something like that after you spent so much energy with sewing machine. haha!
Another pouch for mama. Aurifil wool thread(12wt.) can fake machine stitch looks like hand embroidery.
The very first project I was inspired to make was this dress that I sewed up one day while my daughter was at school. I was so excited for her to come home to try it on. She was happy enough to wear it while I took this photo, but I’ve never gotten her to wear it again. Kids!
I am not done playing with Strawberry Biscuit yet. I often say to my sewing friend, “Once you have fabric, you will be inspired.” I am sure Strawberry Biscuit will inspire me over and over again!
Strawberry Biscuit is now available at fabric stores, worldwide. If you would like to see what the other participating bloggers will be making with these fabrics, here’s the schedule with links to their blogs and Instagram feeds.
