Hot pad with hand quilting

My hot pad is ready...a day after the actual event, after removing the machine quilting and redoing it completely in small stitches by hand and learning some bias binding method in the process of completion as well!

A penguin softie

My little boy asked for a penguin after watching little kids on TV playing with them in some international children park. I didn't know what to do but after thinking a while I said, "That gives me an idea!" quoting his favorite character Mister Maker from the series by the same name on CBeebies. I... Continue Reading →

A lazy winter afternoon

I hand embroidered the 'D' using a simple filling stitch in yellow. Then I made a double layer straight bind on the side... Continue Reading →

Friday Night Sew In(FNSI)

I have been thinking about a fish softie for a while now. On Friday I started by making a free hand outline. It looked rather plump and nice. I chose some fun fabric and cut the various parts separately. Then cut fabric as per choice with 1/4inch seam allowance. Then just stitched, turned it inside... Continue Reading →
