Saturday Sewing




Coasters:

This is an easy sewing project I worked on today. I used up a lot Christmas scraps I had. I used 2 five inch squares of fabric and 1 five inch square of leftover quilt batting. Place the fabric right sides together on top of the batting. Stitch a 1/4 inch seam around the edge leaving a 2 to 3 inch opening for turning. Clip the corners. Turn the square right sides out. I used a knitting needle to get the corners turned. Turn to the inside the edges of the opening left for turning. Top stitch along the edge all the away around, which sews the opening together as you go over that section. I already had several five inch squares left over from a previous project.

I have Monday off so I plan to stay home and work on Christmas napkins and rice filled heating pads as well as some other projects.

Wow, you're going to have Christmas ready in no time! I haven't been feeling well today, so no sewing but I've been thinking about a quilt to make for baby boy utilizing fabric my mom used to make shirts for my dad out of. It'll be grandpa's shirt's quilt! Maybe an heirloom. I'll post on it if I get it done. How is grandbaby and the new mommy?

Wow! That looks great! Are the edges hard to stitch over because of the batting? I just have to try some of these :)

Love,

Joy
