While I could never find the inner pernicketyness needed fro proper quilting, I do find that piecing fabric together with my overlocker and sewing maching is one of the things that gives me huge satisfaction. During the holidays I made a bit of a dent in my piles and piles of fabric scraps, starting out with these linen scraps left over from trimming a big order of napkins for Heath Ceramics. I wanted to see if even these skinny strips could be used up somehow.
Overlocked and stitched together, they quickly grew into a decent-sized piece of strong fabric, and I used it to make this little snap-closed wallet, based on the one I have from Bookhou.
The wallet is for sale in my Etsy shop, and keep an eye out as the week goes on, cos I’ve got a few other patched things to add.
