My brain seems a little slow at the moment, I’d like to think relaxed, but just in case it needs a little stimulation, I’ve decided that I will endeavour to learn some new skills and to conquer my fear of ‘right sides together’, i.e. construction techniques. So, I undertook this ‘easy make’ from Simply Sewing magazine. This pinny was made using just 2 fat quarters. It is perhaps more decorative than practical. I learnt some cutting out and construction techniques, including how to join lengths of fabric to make a longer piece for the tie belt. This is where you could have done with a bit of extra fabric to make a wider belt and to make it easier to turn the right way out once it had been sewn together. Next time I will match my top stitch thread to the fabric and not try and go for opposites! Its not embroidery now! Teamed with some baking implements or a cookery book, this will make a nice present for someone.
