Neat as a button.

Remember yesterday how I suggested you fuse a strip of interfacing to the opening of your soft toys? This is how neat it stays when you do. No fraying! Double tip – don’t fuse it too close to the edge of the opening, leave a hair’s breadth between the edge of the interfacing and the edge of the fabric so your needle will go through the fabric with ease. xx

A mouse in the house…

Calling all Happy Quilters

Good morning Happy Quilters! Do you have any photos of the projects you have made from the Happy Quilts book or my patterns that you are willing to share with me and others?  As a lot of you would know, I don’t keep my quilts and soft toys. I simply don’t have the room and it seems such a waste to keep them in a cupboard when someone could be using them. I sell some to fund future projects, but I give most of them away.
