I feel like March was a bit slow on the making front as I had two weeks of basically making nothing due to feeling low because of my Gran passing away. When I feel this way, it is impossible for me to be creative, I need to feel happy and positive to produce happy and cheerful makes. But I thought I'd do a little round up of what I did make and set out some plans for April.
Above you can see the Dilly Flowers pattern that I was kindly gifted by Elise and Emelie on Instagram. If you follow me on Instagram (I'm more active on Instagram as @vintagesewingbox) you will see I turned them into a little pouch which I gave to my mum for Mother's Day.
I also finished the little outfit for the Maileg bunny and embroidered a little bunny onto the skirt. I think this added a sweet touch, I love little details.
I also made the tent I showed in my last post, which is proving to be a very popular toy with my two year old.
As well as these gifts, I started working on my own English Paper Piecing pattern. I've been wanting to create a rose motif out of epp for a long time so I started playing around with ideas and this is what I created.
I settled on the last design and I've changed my mind many times over what it is going to become. So I've set it aside and I'm sure I will pick it back up soon. As well as my own designs, I worked on my Sew and Quilt block of the month but it isn't finished. I'm not in a rush to complete each month on time, I'm enjoying working on it slowly.
I also worked some more on my large hexagon Liberty quilt, and bought some matching trainers accidentally on purpose!
So, my plans for April and quite ambitious as usual! I'd like to make a small quilt as a present for a lovely little person and I'd like to do a step by step tutorial on here so that if anyone wants to create the same quilt you can. I have a simple but fun design in mind and it will be perfect for beginners. I'd also like to make some more zip pouches/purses and other smaller makes. Also on my agenda for this month is to progress further on my large hexagon liberty fabric quilt and I'd like to have all of the maths worked out and a detailed explanation on here as I've been receiving questions from people who would like to make one too, which is so lovely and exciting! So I think April will be a busy month! There's also my Sew and Quilt block of the month to fit in! Happy sewing!
