|Nice and big for all my knitting needs|
I decided to treat myself. I wanted to feature a Tula Pink raccoon on one side, but I couldn't find a pattern that worked to keep the whole animal intact (who wants to cut off a raccoon's tail?!). So I made one! This was my first attempt to design a foundation paper pieced pattern, and after lots of false starts, and some drawing in the steam on the shower door, I figured out what I wanted to do.
Then I chose fabrics that coordinated, and set to work sewing. When I finished, I was so proud that it worked!
|It has my name on it.... I guess I get to keep it!|
|An adorable zipper pull|
|Hand embroidered name|
|Applique cat (my favourite!)|
|Look at that precision!|
