|Fabric pull for Strawberry Mini|
I am working in my sewing nook on my Strawberry Swap, today. I wanted to make a cute strawberry mini, but I don't have the money for the pattern. So, I just figured out the hst sizes and mocked on up. It's cute. I may add a leaf to some of these, but this is my WIP for the day and there's a basket too.
On a side note, did anyone let you know that I am a Swapaholic. Well, I really am! I had a conversation with my friend Ayna (amanicustoms on IG) and this was conversation.
Me: I need to stop with the swaps.
Her: Yeah you should start SA (Swaps Anonymous)..an hour later or so
Me: I just signed up for another swap.
Her: Stop the shenanigans!
Me: I can sew a mug rug in my sleep.
Her: You should be the president of SA.
The strawberry swap. There's just so much cuteness here. Kira @Labellacolori told me about this berry basket over here. I decided to make one, but my printer is out of ink. So, I just got my cardstock and kinda made a template.
It called for heavy interfacing, but I had some Buckram laying around that I made a hat out of last year. So, it feels nice and stable.
I thought I would share how I got the binding on here.
I just squish it and move it around 'til it was right next to the other side and chain stitched it together.
I did a fold where the binding goes together and slipped one side in under the folded edge and sewed that down.
This is about 3 inch square. I just turned the binding and sewed it down. Fiddly, but it looks good, and it's reversible.
