Halloween Mini Swap

The second instagram swap I signed up for was a Halloween mini swap. I love Halloween so this was right up my alley. I decided to use english paper piecing and focus on fabric that had a vintage look, since my partner said she liked vintage Halloween. Again right up my alley! I sewed up one of my Halloween bunting from Spoonflower, some of my mini treat bags, and of course had to include some candy & Halloween legos in the mix.

Heather Ross mini quilt swap

A few months back I signed up for my very first mini quilt swap on instagram. It was a Heather Ross themed swap. You make a mini quilt using Heather Ross fabrics, and send it off to a partner. I used Modern Handcraft’s free tutorial for making modern hexies. I love the technique, it looks so cool once its quilted, and I think I need to make another one to keep. I decided to make a scrappy binding too (my first one!) I took some photos of my finished quilt that I will post soon, as well as photos of what I received which was an gorgeous mini with tons of handmade extras.

Plush Of The Month Club September

September Plush Of The Month Club boxes contained pink confetti cake slices in celebration of the club turning 1! The slices were packed up in pink bakery boxes, had a card to send off to a friend, and frosted cupcake taffy all tied up with a cupcake ribbon.
I knew I wanted to make the cake “confetti” but had a lot of back and forth on how I would create the baked in sprinkle look. I couldn’t find a fabric I liked and considered designing my own with Spoonflower. In the end I used fabric markers and good old fashion dots to create the confetti look. Having just mailed out the October boxes I am ready to relax for a few days before I begin sewing November boxes, though I am really excited about the plush I decided on.
