This is the first bit of crafting since Sunday, I have come down with the flue and it has knocked me out all week, You can imagine that for me this is a biggie! Just taking it slow for the moment cos everything aches! This is the pattern I am doing for the quilt They are large blocks, each block is 14 inches. 3 blocks wide and 5 rows down make up this quilt top. I am allowing the fabric to do work, it is so pretty! Scottie dogs will be appliqued in place afterwards.
Lots of sewing done today, 12 girls capes ready, just need to add the velcro to the neck pieces.
Starting on the boys capes now. I made the girls in exactly the same way. The lining is cut to the correct size, and to make it easier, the outer was roughly cut slightly larger, It just saves me time. Pin well all around.
Sew all the way around leaving an opening in the bottom to turn it through.
Cut it out neatly.
Clip the curves.
Turn it the right way out and pin the opening closed
Top stitch all the way around.
Add the logo, these are made of wool felt. and the velcro to the neck edge and you are done. I have 11 more boys capes cut out and paired up ready to sew.
