Hi everyone! I am about ready to get started. I had to clean up some odds and ends before I started crafting. Smiley

Yeah...the pillows REALLY flatten out with a few stitches in them. I try to add some stitches all over the patch to make sure its stable. And its VERY little batting. Id say a 2x3" pillow probably gets a "heaping tablespoon" sized bundle of polyfil (not packed down at all). Anymore and sewing the edged becomes a pain.

I cut my pieces of fabric the same size, then cut down my top piece (that will be the center of the patch) by 1 centermeter so it is a little smaller. Then I stitch a U along the outside. Pop a little fluff inside and stitch closed the last side. I dont do the double fold because I think it looks neater when I dont...but some people like a more uneven, rolled edge. I roll as I go. I don't pin. Then I do any applique work/decorative stitching. When its all done I go around anywhere that is still poofy and put stitches there. Spirals and dashes and stuff.

I have seen patches WAY better than mine...but this works for me.

But I know your partner Stillatthetop. She is gonna like whatever you send. (I had to google trapunto quilting and now I have to try that!)

I received my beautiful hoop from Blupaisan. It's incredible and has two of the things that I love most! Unicorns and Purple!!



I love the extras. I am going to go use the pretty fabric right now. Thank you!!

I started stalking and got all excited and crafted all my patches for stillatthetop. And I planned out my patches for crazyda79 and got the materials all together. I wouldnt be surprised if they are done as soon as I finish my housework. TM patches are completely addictive.

Ahhh Blupaisan...I am SO glad you liked it. I sent the canvas because I just wasnt sure and I wanted you to have something you liked just in case. LOL

Crayons are nice. But, they are a bit faint and details are hard...I use water color pencils on wetted down fabric. Way easier to make dots and stuff. Plus, you can do it after. I did the stitches before coloring it in.
