Tuesday Fabric Story

A few fabric-related finishes happened for me this past week, which isn't surprising, since we're heading into Christmas-gift crunch time. A crunch of my own making, I will admit. I keep adding stuff onto my to-make list. Luckily, they're all quick projects that I can start and finish in an evening.

Ornament for the VMQG ornament swap. I used the Spool tutorial (.pdf file here) for the second time, and I still love it. I read a tip about using a small piece of batting for stuffing the tail, and I like the effect. Just like the first time I tried making a Spool bird, I had trouble sewing up the end. So I just zig zagged across the raw edge and I think it looks okay. Fabric is from the pajama pants I bought a while back.

Embellished t-shirt for a Christmas gift. Still loving that birdie!

Embellished t-neck for a certain someone's 3rd birthday coming up this weekend.

Linking up to Quilt Story for Fabric Tuesday. Even though this post is 100% quilt free!

I *love* comments, and I try to respond to every one by email (but I can't if you're a no-reply blogger!). So go on, don't be shy - leave one to let me know you've stopped by!
