As I am currently traveling on vacation (even though it's only 2 states away from home), I'm having fun looking up small independent quilt and fabric stores in the different cities and finding treasures!
I'd love to win this book for some ideas on what to do with my treasures!
I'm always looking for more crafty things to do with my little girl - we have lots of rainy days here in Washington.
Oh, and I've heard the method you've used for the corners as "Boxing the Corners"
As a Star Wars fan and an avid sewer, I've collected Star Wars bedsheets for years with no project in mind until my daughter was born and decided to go through my collection and use up the damaged/stained sheets.
I've made a bowling style shirt out of the classic 'Blue' and a pinafore dress out of a Return of the Jedi Ewoks one. Most sheets I've seen hold up because it's a poly/cotton, even if threadbare but I would use a sturdy lining fabric to take most of the weight of whatever you are going to carry in the bag - like a twill or broadcloth (and it saves more of the sheet for more bags!)
While I do agree if the sheets in question are 'Mint' or 'Rare' you may want to see if there's someone out there that would like to buy them from you (and use to $ to buy more fabric) BUT I also have a perverse sense of humor to see a fellow fan go "WHY WOULD YOU DO THAT TO xxxx???" :)
Love the fact it comes with 5 customizable patterns. This looks like an inspiring book!
Would love to try these patterns!
I plan on teaching a few of my girlfriends to sew this year and this looks like a great book to pick some easy, pretty projects to work on!
I would love to have this in my collection - I need a good step by step guide!
I've been collecting some wool sweaters from the thrift stores to try some recycled felting projects. Would love an instructional project book!
I like embossing on leather, suede, and polar fleece using an iron and rubber stamps. I've show quite a few rubber stamp collectors how to do it and they get so excited to play with their rubber stamps in a new way.
My only comment is if you are going to actually mail these to your invitees, is that you allow EXTRA time for them to be delivered. Often with unusual forms of mailings (like something with texture) it has to be hand canceled/processed.
How are you finishing the quilt? Are you using any sort of quilt batting in the middle or what kind of fabric on the back? I've done a simple t-shirt quilt before but had used a knit interfacing on the t-shirts so they wouldn't pull or roll up and polar fleece on the back wrapped to the front. Any problems with the quilt by not interfacing it?
No! Not another cool craft to get sucked into! But I have so many magazines/catalogs in the recycling, calling to me now....
Great photos and tutorial!
