Always fancied making something with patchwork? Been a bit daunted by those fiddly looking squares? Fear no more! These Easy Patchwork Instructions will get you sewing and making lovely projects in next to no time. I remember loving the look of patchwork and thinking: no time/no patience/my big clodding hands won’t be able to do that. Then I discovered this strip method and made my first quilt. Boy, was I proud and I’d love to share that with you.
This is a sale of a file that will be sent to you on as an Instant Download. OR if you prefer a PRINTED HARD COPY then please add a note to me when buying.
All copies are the same and have illustrated instructions only for how to make quick and easy patchwork using strips of fabric. (No need for patterns to be printed out). There are instructions on how to turn that patchwork into quilted items if you wish, how to back and bind the finished quilted fabric. There are suggestions for accessories, such as throws, placemats and quilts to make.
Included is a simple project to be made using the strip process for the black and white Scottie Dog in the photos. The photos show the progress of how the strips of material were sewn together and then turned into patchwork in the creation of the Scottie Dog. All illustrated instructions included. The Scottie Dog can be used as a soft toy or with the insertion of a small weight such has 500 grams of rice, a doorstop.
Photos also show cushions made by this process (the heart one was made by a 9 year old as a first project - that's how easy it is) and I've written about how to make the heart cushion.
The other photos are of the SAUSAGE DOG draught excluder, SCOTTIE DOG DOORSTOP/CUSHION and a UNICORN. They are from my 'HotDogs' collection with instructions for matching cushions covers.
Photo also of RAGGEDY BAG - a great way to use up old jeans/flannel fabrics. Please see my 'other items for sale'
All patterns are my own design. They are from my collection of INSTANT PDF download patterns OR Printed Hard Copies which will be sent by Royal Mail 2nd class.
All projects are fun and easy for all abilities with clear step by step instructions and photos written by myself as I would have wished as a beginner in sewing!
SAUSAGE DOG can be made up in any fabric, from as little as half a metre. Extra may be needed if you wish to make the belly insert, tail and ears in different fabric. SAUSAGE DOG is a draft excluder with a soft filling but firm enough to stay in place. There are 'Special Instructions' for patterned fabric if you wish to match the pattern across the back. Easy instructions are included to lengthen or shorten the body. Consisting of 9 pattern pieces and illustrated Sewing Instruction sheets which I've written to explain every step, sewing terms and techniques.
SCOTTIE DOG as well can be made in any fabric. SCOTTIE is a fun door stop with simple instructions for a weight if required
I can also make these DOGS to order, please contact or see my other items for sale.
The pattern for the delightful UNICORN or pony (miss out the horn) and can be made with a beautiful flowing mane, decorated with plenty of ric rac, buttons and bling from your stash if you wish! RAGGEDY BAG is a super trendy casual bag that can be sized up for a tote or down for a child. A perfect excuse to use up those old jeans or flannel sheets or mooch around the charity shops for finds.
