I've been playing with vintage scraps again, it really makes me happy.



Look at the stack of bright pancakes!




All it takes is perseverance.


And slowly a bag begins to form.



I would love to have the space to teach workshops. I so miss the contact with other crafters in real life.

Our Creative Space... Lazy Nine Patch

In the spirit of reducing my mountain of scraps, I've been doing some nine patches that may or may not become a bag. The nine patch is of course, pretty straitforward, but I'm not a quilter, so I googled to see if there was an easier way to do it. All the tutorials I saw envolved lots of pinning and ironing the seams in between. I like to be practical, or lazy, if you want, so I developed a way to do it with NO backstitching, NO pinning and NO ironing in between.


Lay your squares at the side of your sewing machine in the way you want it. I put the stitch length at 1.8. That makes tiny, tiny stitches, so that you won't need to backstitch. The numbers on the squares indicates the order of sewing them together.


Chainstitch squares 1-2, 3-4 and 5-6 together. DONT SEPARATE THE SQUARES.


Then, again chainstitch nrs 7,8 and 9 to squares 2,4 and 6. Again, DONT SEPARATE THE SQUARES.




Lay again your block on the table and fold row 1-2-7 on top of the middle row. Hold it at both sides and you will see that the tread between the squares acts like pins would do and the seams alternate and nestle almost on their own



Repeat with the other rows. If you had  the seams in the upper fabric going down in the previous row, coax them now gently up in this row.


This is the result.



And the back, Now iron!


As I said before, I am not a quilter, so maybe there are lots of folks doing it this way, but I haven't seen it explained so on line, so I wanted to share it with you. I use only reclaimed scraps,soft and slippery, but it took me less than two minutes to put the block together. If you use crisp quilting cotton I bet that you can do it in a minute!

Two delicious smocked purses are in the making. Mum did the smocking and now it is time to turn them in to purses.


They are both made with Gingham which gives a super effect!
We also had a little visitor, sitting calmly on our sewing machines cable, a praying mantis. It was safely put outside after this picture :)

Just like with our bags, this week we have made some jewelry with vintage embroidery. Little pieces are enough to make some sunny necklaces.


We are also busy with a special custom order, a mother and her 3 children, will be represented with sea urchins and maybe a turtle. The nice thing of custom orders is beside the fact of trying new things you also get to hear great stories.

Some Mistakes are for the Better


Remember that piece of smocking mum made for hours and eventually found out that she did it wrong?
After 3 months of waiting for inspiration to strike without letting all that work go to waste, we finally turned it in one of our most favorite bags uptill now!


We removed all the thread from the smocking, as it stayed for so long in keeps its shape. Then we used a sticky interface so that it will stay that way, no matter what. The best part of it are the amazing natural driftwood handles, we just love it :)


You can see more pictures and information of this bag in our shop.

Our Creative Space...


As Estella told you last week, I am in a patchwork roll.
The accuquilt gadget is to blame, partially, since it makes a feast of the cutting part.


And I am determined to reduce our five ginormous baskets of scraps to one. Don't know if a life time is enough to manage that, but I try.



This time, cathedral window quilting combined with clever folding has resulted in one of the most beautiful bags that we have done to date!



It is now available in our bagshop!
