red scout tee

I’ve been itching to get back to my sewing machine. Sewing seems to come in phases for me, sometimes I can’t get enough and have a hundred ideas playing ping pong in my head and sometimes I’m just frustrated with whatever I come up with.
This Scout tee was actually made months ago, but with a little collar that looked very cute in my head and decidedly less cute on the actual shirt.

So it sat there, unloved, unworn for a while until I finally worked up the motivation to rip the collar out and finish it with bias tape. The fabric is a red voile, soft and nearly sheer.

A simple but versatile little tee that will hopefully see lots of wear this summer.

little folks zig-zag pillows

Inspired by this beautiful little pillow *here* I just had to copy the idea and make these little zig-zag pillows:

I had a lot (as far as patchwork goes) Little Folks fabric left over from making the Little Folks Quilt a while ago and this voile fabric is just so soooft and buttery, I had to use it for something.
This one is a bold color combination for me, but I think it works very well.

This one is closer to my original inspiration:

The backs are with contrasting Little Folks fabrics:

To make the zigzag I used *this tutorial* from ‘a quilt is nice’. Very straighforward and easy to follow!
I think I’ll have these on my balcony, it can use a little patchwork and color 🙂

So this quilt has been finished a while and took forever to photograph. I tried to take pictures three times and they always sucked.
So these are the best you’ll get, sorry 😉

Made with Anna Maria Horner’s beautifully soft Voile Fabrics from the ‘Little Folks’ collection. I am forever spoilt for quilting cotton now…that voile is just so wonderful and soft, all of my future quilts will have to be made with voile.

The back is a nice blue cotton and the binding is my favourite purple Ikea fabric.

I quilted it roughly with embroidery floss and because I am continually broke I used what I had and the rows are all in different colors.
