Well it’s another week closer to Christmas and this week I have started to finish a project that I started in 2009 – one of my many UFO’s. It is Little Tiger’s Santa Sack. I used a Makower panel it was my first attempt at quilting so using the panel and some iron on wadding as well as some reindeer material for the lining I quickly made up the santa’s sack with help from my Mum – why don’t they teach you how to do proper sewing stuff in school? Then to make it our own sack I have spent the last two years hand quilting around the characters and adding embelishments to it. Here is a photo of the work in progress from last Christmas.
So soon I will be starting on Tinkerbell’s sack – luckily Makower have a new design of panel for a santa’s sack whcih means her’s will be different to his.
What a great idea and a fab way to upcycle your old clothes.
So now for the link party – come along and join in. Next week I’m thinking Chutney’s and Jams as the fruits are getting ripe in the garden.
