Sew Kitschy: Cookie Jar

A short tale of Sew Kitschy in February

After a long time it was a wonderful feeling to sew some backstitches - - - by hand.

Kristy didn't give us the pattern of embroidered word 'Cookies'... so I think it's a voluntary part in this block.

It was quite challenging to sew the jar of this wavy stripe fabric. I was trying to target the dashed lines, but I did not quite managed to do it. One problem was that I have only a layer cake piece of it - - - a 10" x 10" piece of fabric.

The lid of the jar annoys me a little bit... it looks little bit heavy. Maybe I should have sew the lower... or upper strip of red solid fabric...??
It's easy to replace... later... if I want to!


Happy Sewing Sunday!

No, onpa hauska blokki! Pikkukuvassa, missä näkyy työn kokonaisuus, kannen raskaus ja raitojen linjat eivät mitenkään pistä silmään (minusta ei kyllä isossakaan kuvassa, ellet olisi sitä osoittanut :D), purnukkasi on hyvä juuri noin! Innolla jään odottelemaan muiden blokkien valmistumista, etenkin tuo haarukkablokki vaikuttaa aika mielenkiintoiselle.

Mielestäni näyttää hyvältä ja kauniit värit!
Hauska blokkisarja tulossa.

Pikkuleipäpurkkisi näyttää suorastaan herkulliselta. Kansi ja raidat oikein sopivat.

I love your cookie jar. Your word looks great. I am getting ready to figure out how to do my word.

I was wondering if you could explain to me how you do the black and white collage and add your photos to it when you finish a block?

Lisa kirjoitti...

Oh me too! I would love to know how you are doing it too! You really know how to PP very well! I love your cookie jar! Next question: do you pull the paper off to do your embroidery? I always heard don't take it off before you sew all your blocks together. Thank you!
