Make your favourite little girl her own version of the celebrity doggie handbag carrier.
Try your hand at easy machine quilting, mix in some fab fabric, ribbons and a bit of sparkle, not forgetting a lovable Scottie dog, and your favourite little girl is all set for summer.
This is also a project in which you could be helped by the younger sewing generation.
‘This is a great introduction to quilting and good for practising your precision and skills.’
Top tips from Jo
- With quilting, always aim for a clean, accurate finish – take the time to tidy your loose thread ends by threading them onto a needle and sewing them securely and invisibly into the wadding.
- Collect any ribbon that comes into the house, whether on birthday or Christmas presents or boxes of chocolates – you’ll always find a use for it in projects like these!
- Keep a wooden or plastic chopstick in your sewing box for easing out corners when you turn items the right round after sewing, such as bag straps or cushions.
if you fancy a matching brooch either for the bag or your jacket, one is included in the little booklet Stitched Fabric Brooches
