Preparing for the ride

On Monday the One World One Heart blogging event “Riding the magic carpet” will start, so I am prepared and ready to go with 3 small pieces:

“One World One Heart”made from scraps and tulle and yarn and embellishments. It was so much fun to work with, but the embellishing part was so much harder than I expected. A tutorial on how to build a scrap quilt like this will follow later.

“Pink Princess”made with a crown I made some years ago for some clown quilts. The crown is also made from scraps. The quilt is embellished with at few fabric covered buttons; I wanted to add some more lettering, so I ended up with these. They were easy to make and very decorative. A tutorial on how to build shapes from scraps and making fabric covered buttons will follow later.

and finally
“Penguins in Snowstorm”No introduction needed I guess, pretty much the same as this one. Inger Marie – this is in your honour!

Are any of you going to ride the Magic Carpet?

Now I’ll add this to Amylouwho’s Sew & tell Fridays.

    Do you think I'm pulled more towards the girly girl stuff because I'm surrounded by males?
