I found out what a layer cake is – it is a packet/bundle of 40 10″squares of different fabrics from the same designer’s line often used in projects to help colour co-ordinate without the fuss. The fabrics then are beautifully colour coded to look great on a quilt. No need to figure it out yourself, I think this is possibly a good way to start out with quilting. Since finding out I have had a look at layer cakes from some on-line fabric shops, WOW, this habit could get just a little ittie bit expensive, hmmm, I am having to rethink the way I go about this a bit. I also found a fabric shop in London that might be the answer, I will visit it tomorrow and post about it if it is a success.
Now onto the important matter of Oilcloth Phone Covers – I have wanted to make one of these since I got a new phone and didn’t want it to get totally scratched and lost in my bag. Also for a bit more protection when it is in my hands or rather falling out of them – this happens more often than I would like. I love it and it fits my new phone just right. I made a few different sizes. These are easy to make and use and look great. I took some up to school and already had four mum’s wanting one of their own.
Next I will put some in my folksy shop – soon soon I promise. If I have another minute or two spare over the next few days I will squeeze in a tutorial on how to make these.
