Hoo-rah!

 

The summer issue of Stitch is here, and I’ve got a project in it. Check it out.

button bling rings by carolyn friedlander in stitch magazine

 

Fabric rings with vintage buttons–exactly my kind of bling. I’ve never been much of a shiny and/or serious jewelry type person, especially when it comes to rings. Wood versions have been my go-to, but the tides might be changing with these little guys. Plus, it’s always more fun to make things to your own liking. And who doesn’t have a small stash of enticing buttons just waiting for the right project?

 

These rings take no time (or supplies, really) to make. I could probably find enough fabric to make one in my waste basket. I guess that’s why I made 5 samples rather than the two they asked for…You might say they are addictive.

 

Fast and satisfying. Hope others like it too!

some weekend sewing, mini Sunrise style.

 

Last week, I came across some miniMINI Sunrise blocks (included in my Sunrise pattern) that I’d made for Quilt Market, and I decided that making some more would make for a perfect bit of weekend sewing.

 

It started kinda like this…
fabric strips

 

and ended like this.

It was fun. But now I need to take care of this.

It always gets a little messy.

Next step, sew together and maybe add a border or two.

 

ps. big THANKS to Bolt for picking up my patterns!
