First up, it's the Week 2 project, dish towels. The book gives directions and adorable appliqués for three towels. Owing to time constraints and lack of interest in a lot of appliqué, I only made two towels, and rather than the words Breakfast, Lunch and Dinner, I stuck to the rather bossy "Eat" for both towels and also added the salt and pepper shaker appliqués. I hope Ms. Cindy likes them!
As you may be able to see, I used a thinner linen for the towels because I'm really trying to sew from my stash and that's all I had. I think they'll wash up and soften quite nicely.
For Ms. Chris, I made the Week 3 project (and linked up in time to be eligible for prizes - yay!) Lettered Tea Cozy:
I didn't use the foundation paper piecing templates from the book (feeling lazy), so I basically free-pieced the letters. That strategy wasn't as successful when it came to the teacup so I just left it out of the final project.
Notice a 30s reproduction theme going on here? I happened to be making a baby quilt for the afore-mentioned Ms. Cindy using 30s reproduction fabrics (to be blogged soon), so they were around my sewing space when I needed scraps for these two projects.
I like these little sailor dudes!
