I have been sewing my heart out whenever I get a chance and I have many things I want to show you. For this post I am going to focus on the things I made for the “Whimsical Woodland Mug Rug Swap” over on Instagram.
Inspiration finally struck and I came up with this little mug rug. I have reverse appliqued adorable Heather Ross gnomes into a little mushroom house and garden.
|A closer view. I found the quote “Trust not in Sprites nor the Motivations of a Gnome” when I Googled gnome quotes. I think it’s a line from a movie? Anyway, I love it for this project.
|I just sewed this little needle book up this afternoon. Remember I said in this post that I wanted to make one for the swap? So here it is.
This is a pattern in the book “Scrap Quilt Projects” from Vivebooks.
|Here is the back.
|I also decorated a tea towel for a swap extra.
This swap is going out in the mail on Tuesday. I think my partner will love it. I hope she will! 🙂
