Today I made something new from a pattern made by Tammy of Rock River Stitches. It is such a cute pattern, that I will be making a bunch of them for friends. Tammy's patterns are really great to work from, simple and easy to follow.
But, you know me, I cannot follow directions, I just make things, lol. Then I see what I did wrong and try to correct it the next time;) I definitely need to practice my machine skills, I cannot seem to stay on track when I am sewing. So, mine is a bit off and not as nice as hers, but not bad for my first try. I do have a hard time working with small pieces.
I used heavy tan ticking for the kitty and light weight cotton ticking for the base. Then I sprayed it with walnut spray to age it. The spool I got in a package from the craft store and then I wound a piece of my dyed floss around it a bit. I think it will be fun to find mini sewing items and try different things with the designs.
