There are lots of lovely projects in the book, but I thought I would start out small and easy and attempt the Happy Garland Message Board. I had all the listed requirements too (apart from the pegs but I bought them yesterday at Spotty) which is always a bonus. As coincidence would have it, this is also the project for this week in the Zakka Style sew along!
I have a little bit of a thing for greens going at the moment, so I thought I would use that colour scheme. What a super project for using up all those little scrappy pieces of fabric that you can't bear to throw out! Each little flag is cut from a 1" square of fabric! I am really pleased with how this turned out...and I managed to make it in between doing a few loads of washing, making lunch and getting dinner simmering on the stove - you have go to LOVE a project like that!
|If only the note was true - wishful thinking on my part and a little nod to my beautiful friend Fiona.|
The colours match really well with the patchwork pot holders that Fiona gave me on her last visit. I love them and am a bit in awe of Fiona's circular binding!
|Finished and hanging on the wall.|
I am looking forward to trying some of the other projects in the Zakka book in the coming months.....but I really should baste those 4 quilts that need doing first!
