Patchwork, Eyelet and Birthdays


My granddaughter Lucy turned four and she loves her new pillow! Check out Down Grapevine Lane’s tutorial to make one too. It was my first attempt at machine appliquéing and it’s not too difficult.  Instead of embroidery floss for the embroidery, I used two strands of black thread like Nana Company suggests.

Eyelet and patchwork go so well together.  This piece came from a thrifted children’s dress I found years ago.  I was so glad I had bought it then because I checked out eyelet fabric at Joann’s and it was such poor quality compared to this sturdy, all cotton piece with great floral definition.

Gotta get ’em when you see ’em!
