Sewing1-2-3 Making Wallets

I’m a little behind in posting about our projects, so here’s a little catch-up!

Remember this post about the wallets? Well…it was a great success!

After cutting out the wallet pattern pieces out of felt, we sketched our image for applique and used it as a pattern piece.

Then we embellished our applique, in this case, we added eyes, nose, mouth and whiskers!.

The applique was then sewn to the front of the wallet. Then the wallet was sewn following this tutorial.

voila! BEAUTIFUL pincushions!

During our most recent Sewing 1-2-3 session, we made pin cushions! We started by cutting out the shapes of our cushions out of felt using pinking shears. Then some sketched their ideas in their notebook for a pattern, while others cut felt freely to use for an applique.

We then decorated our cushion pieces with embroidery and applique.

Once that was done, we stitched three sides of the cushion together and left the last side open so we could stuff the cushions.

After the cushions were firmly filled, we stitched 1/2 of the last open side closed, then stuffed the cushion even further, and stitched the last bit closed.
