Reindeer Games

I decided to pad out my pet mat using an old towel as wadding. I added a pretty fabric for the backing and bound it like a quilt using a deep mulberry coloured binding. As long as your iron doesn’t touch the vinyl all is good. It sewed really well and I’m very happy with it. A dog themed pet mat is up next. FREE pattern available next week. xx


Back before I had to make a living from this gig, I experimented a lot and made some interesting stuff. I never took a photo of this finished quilt but it was made entirely of jeans pockets and scrap quilting cotton. I wonder where it ended up. I must have given it away. I can remember it being heavy! I had an enormous amount of fun blanket stitching around the pockets.

I had a thing for recycling denim, I still do, and I made these guys from old jeans. I’ve decided to resurrect the pattern because they are just so darn cute. Ragnar the Reindeer and Maurice the Moose.

And while I was meandering down memory lane, I found these guys in my scrap bin. They are little desk pals (or pin cushions). I made dogs and cats too. I’ll update the pattern tomorrow with an added base for stability.

I hope you had a lovely Monday. It was sweltering hot here. Spring didn’t last long and we’ve leapt straight into Summer. Sleep tight lovelies, toni xx
