Sewing with friends

When you start the day with flowers and friends it just doesn’t get any better……unless you add sewing to the mix!  Friday was Mollie Makes day at Bunny Hill and we spent the day sewing with friends!

My friend Chickie brought show and tell;  beautiful Scrappy Plate blocks as only Chickie can do.  She’s appliqued them on linen and when she’s finished the applique she’ll add a crochet flower and covered button to the center of each block.  I can’t wait to see her finished quilt!

Chickie’s project for the day was  the fabric clutch featured in Mollie Makes Issue #14.  

Here’s the fabric she used for the clutch…

…and the almost finished clutch!

She has to wait for the hardware she ordered from here to arrive in the mail before she can finish her clutch. All she has to do is glue on the clutch handle, add the chain and her clutch is finished.

My friend Nireko made these adorable embroidered macaroon needle cases.  She bought the needle kits when she was in Japan.  When she saw the embroidery in issue #7 she knew it would be perfect for the cases!

Robin and I decided to make the felt Llamas from issue #12.

We added rings to the top so they could be attached to a purse or backpack.

Kim made the little elephant brooch.

We had such a fun day.  If you own any issues of Mollie Makes, take some time to make one of the projects. You’ll be glad you did!
