Make your favourite little girl her own version of the celebrity doggie handbag carrier designed by Jo Gourlay
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.
