patchwork club Oct

Postby Melis » Sat Oct 21, 2017 7:44 pm

It was club day today. We had a bit of a table top sale where people off loaded crafty stuff. I didn't buy anything which was really good of me as there were some great things. (A couple of patchwork panels, loads of mags and books, fabric fat quarters etc). Then one of the members set up a fabric sale in the other room. She works in a charity shop and they save fabric for her. She bought in 10...yes, 10 black bin liners of fabric. We could take what we liked for a donation. I may have bought a few bits :roll: We raised over £100 for a local charity.

There was also a woman who runs recycling workshops. She bought in a whole load of stuff for us to use. I have bought back an egg cup to make into a pin cushion and I also made a brooch from an embroidered napkin and an old blanket. I need to finish it. It was lovely just having a play with things.

Ooh love a rummage and a recycle challenge.. you will have to share once you have made some things.


I have made a few glasses cases and books marks in 'manly' fabrics today, can't think what else to make for gifts for men.

Thought I would make a start on the egg cup pin cushion.

I have some cappuccino cups for this, and i think an egg cup, but still not sure how to stick it.

The daisy is hand appliqued using blanket stitch. I stuck the pin cushion with some all purpose glue. It is suitable for ceramic and fabric. So far it seems ok.

The glue I used is in the photo. It is just an all purpose glue for fabric, wood, ceramic etc.
