This is the start of a new project which is hopefully going to turn out nice enough to be a present. If it turns out well it will also be a pattern for the Happy Bobbin shop too.
So far we have two lilypads and a foot. I bet you can guess where this is going. I had to hand sew the lilypads as the machine really didn't work out for them, but maybe I was too impatient with trying to stuff it with the batting. Instead I slowly worked my way around, folding over both sides of the fabric with the batting inside and hand sewing the edge.
The foot worked well with the machine and I put the batting in with a pair of tweezers. I might have to give those lilypads another go on the machine just to see if it could have been done...
The lilypad with the paisly pattern showing has some light quilting as veins on the leaf. I don't think I'm going to worry about the other as it will be covered by a little frog, but we'll see. That's all for the preview for now. I finally remembered to give you all a little progress shot of what I'm working on for a change!!
