Finished cosmetic case. This one just because, but boy did it give me grief! I only put the snaps on wrong twice! Gah! I hate when I am stupid! I blame 3 dogs, 1 of which is a Brutabaga, for my inattention.
I used a dark navy thread on the vertical and a lime green on the horizontal lines, quilting along the plaid design. I used Peltex to see how well it will hold its shape. So far I have used batting, Soft and Stable, and Peltex. My fav is Soft and Stable, it holds the shape better than batting, but not as stiffly as Peltex. I put the snaps too close on this one, so there is little wiggle room for filling the pockets.
MTT: For the Winter Whimsy pattern I am using cottons and machine blanket stitch from my new machine’s stitches. How will I learn its capabilities if I don’t use it? My fabric pull was easy since I have so much red, green and golds.
Can’t wait to get this one finished. But not sure how I will go with the FMQ on this. I would love to do swirls and curls, but I need a lot more practice on curves, I am too jerky for them at this point. I may have to do some cat mats to perfect curves.
