i had to have help from the blondelings (sisters) to make it match.  Undecided

the straps are brown denim pants cut up the leg in an even strip. then i took a strip of turquoise 1/3 the width of what i cut the brown. then folded the brown over into thirds, then under again for a hem. -ironing every fold flat along the way. then i stitched the folds closest to the turquoise to avoid slippage. finally i sewed near the edge on both sides to make it lay flat.
i hope that made sense..

thank you sooo much for commenting!!
and my ego thanks you for complimenting!  Grin

3  QUILTING / Quilting: Completed Projects / Re: 3 years later on: December 03, 2007 10:21:33 PM
it took me forever to do and i found out through the process that i don't have the patience for quilting either. for a while it calmed my o.c.d. tendencies -then it just made me mad. 
oh, and i have no idea what a cathedral pattern is - i just kinda winged it. i cut out 12 inch squares of fleece, clipped the corners, and sewed them together leaving a 2 inch border to work with on the front. the fleece had very forgiving qualities making it easier to miter the corners and not have a hem (not to mention hiding the mistakes).
i actually had the foresight to cut the flannel out in long strips and then on to about 9 inch squares so they would line up inside their windows. then i just layed them flat under the fleece.

thank you all so much for your encouragement!

there's a special place in heaven for all who quilt. this is my 4th attempt at making one. i'm proud of it - even though it's small (about the size of a throw) and most of the details leave much to be desired. i made it out of flannel and fleece so i wouldn't have to mess with batting.


oh, and it'll probably take me 3 more years to make another  Undecided

i felt bad for not sharing yet so here goes-
i'm trying to teach my youngest sister that not everything awesome comes from a store. so for her 10th b-day, i had her gather up some of her old clothes for me to cut up and put back together into something she could use. now she has a new school bag made out of 2 pairs of pants, an old set of scrubs, cute t-shirts she couldn't fit into anymore, a couple of key rings, a bit of pink chain, and some patches from a hoodie that she wore into the ground. my mom's only request was that she could unlock the door without losing her keys. so here goes. hope you like  Grin
