These pillowcases can be made with left over charm squares from a quilt project and could be made to match a quilt.
To use your favourite fabric scraps, it only requires a very small amount of fabric.
Not my pattern though it is very easy to make. Use fuzzy cutting for a beautiful looking wallet.
I made this pincushion long time a go and I’m still using it. It’s quite large and looks really pretty on the cutting table.
The pattern is by Prudent Baby.
I made a couple of changes. First of all the pattern says it’s for size 9 but when I printed it the sole was a fit for size 7. As a result I didn’t use elastic on the back.
I decided to use hand painted satin silk and needed to add some body to the slippers so I added a layer of batting between the silk and the lining.
I couldn’t find the type of fabric suggested for the sole so I used some imitation leather I had.
I also decorated them with some silk flowers. I have seen this type of flower on the internet before but never tried it. I didn’t follow a tutorial so maybe I did something wrong. I cut some smaller and larger circles and then burned the edges. Since the silk wasn’t synthetic I’m not sure if the burning will keep the silk from fraying for a long time.
I placed the circles together and put some stitches through.
Then I pulled and did a few more stitches to keep the gather in place.
Then I added some sequins and beads in matching colours.
These slippers aren’t for every day use. They look fragile and probably are due to the use of silk but they look cute don’t they?
