Big & Tall

One more little finish this week; another UFO from my ever growing pile of UFOs which I didn’t even know was that big until I started looking for and collecting them from around the house.
A year ago I drew this little design and transferred it to a piece of fabric thinking I wanted some handwork. I might have been wrong, because after a year, it was still laying here basted to a batting recommended for stitchery. So; off came the batting, the little top was spray basted with a new firmer batting and backing, and off to the sewing machine.

When I do “stitchery” by machine, I sew every line 3 times, and so I did on this one too. Some pieces of binding from my Big Bag of Binding, some triangles on the back for hanging, and done!

If you have someone sweet and small in you life, feel free to make you own little “Big & Tall” piece, you can download the image from my Free pattern page.

Now I’m going to add this to amylou’s Thanksgiving sew & tell, and to Rosebud’s Fabric Friday.

  1. So cute! Your machine stitchery looks really good - thank you for sharing how you do it. Maybe I need to try some of that basting spray, that sounds great.

    Enjoy spending the time with your grandson, like you say: one day...
