I am happy to announce a new pattern: ‘Roll Up!’ a very useful case to keep all your scissors and rotary cutters together. It is a sewing and quilting pattern, The case has pockets for dressmaking shears, for paper scissors, for pinking shears and for two sizes of rotary cutter. You can keep all your sewing tools together, each in their pocket.
When the case is open flat on your work-table, everything is there, ready.
When you are finished, you fold down the top flap and roll up the case, then fasten it with the two fabric ties.
The cover of the case is patchwork, in colours to coordinate with the inside.
I had fun with the choice of fabrics for this item and included two different materials with a scissors print on them and the lining has a check pattern of measuring tapes (as you can see in one of the instruction photos from the pattern!
You could choose colours to coordinate with your sewing room
In case you think I have forgotten how to spell using British English, I will hasten to point out that these are the descriptions of two projects designed by me, appearing in the American online magazine We Like Sewing published this month.
The first is a set of instructions to make a circular block, ideal for making a baby quilt. This is the finished ‘Sweet Dreams Baby Quilt Circle Block’.
The second project is the ‘Diamonds for Days’ patchwork quilt, which uses 90 darker fabrics and 45 lighter ones to create bold diamond shapes on a white background.
Here is a close-up of the detail of the quilt.
The subscription model for the magazine means that you can sample two articles for free. So if you want to take a look at these two, head for the QUILTING section of the magazine. Of course, there is lots more besides to enjoy, if you choose to sign up.
