In time for Easter:
Bunny Treat Bags – Caroline of “Sew She Can” Blog shares a pattern/tutorial for an Easter goodie bag. I’ve got a number of “grands” (grandson, grand niece, grand nephews and grand neighbors) that I try to make something for the holidays. Here is a cute little, fast-to-make Easter Treat Bag. I’ve already made one up.
All it takes is four 5” squares of fabric, 16” of 1/4” ribbon, and knowledge of how to use your buttonhole foot.
I had to do a search on the Internet to refresh my memory on how to use my buttonhole foot! (Yeah, like I really use that attachment often!) Don’t you just love the information you can find on the Internet? I did a couple of practice buttonholes, but it did a nice job.
The instructions were to cut out the template and trace the shape on the fabric. Since the line on the template was the stitching line and not the cutting line, I decided to treat it like paper piecing and just printed out the template.
Now that I’ve got my buttonhole attachment figured out, these should work up very fast.
Stripey Egg Mug Rug – Sara at “The Split Stitch” Blog shares a tutorial/pattern for an Easter Egg Mug Rug. Although this is a cute Mug Rug, the pattern could easily be modified to create a placemat.
Did you find something here you might want to make? Hope so. I know I’ll be coming back to make some of these.
