Holiday Creations

I often have customers ask me if they can make the 'chemo caps' from a fat quarter. I have a another customer who has made quite a few for her daughter who says a fat quarter is plenty. Until recently I have been quite happy to state this anecdote. This changed when I was wandering through blogs and stumbled across quite a few patterns. Not one could you only use a Fat Quarter.

I was a bit miffed and thought I was going to spend my break making these patterns to double check for myself. On Sunday I spotted a stallholder wearing a cap/bandana. I followed her back and bought one which I have now unpicked. The pattern pieces fit quite comfortably on the fat quarter.

While I was on a roll I prepped the fat quarters for my faux crazy patch angels.

Then I spray dyed 4 different types of silk. These will get used in 2 different projects.

All this before 10.30am. I've spent the rest of the afternoon sewing the suffolk puffs together to form the square. Now that was the last WIP I hadn't finished. Now I can start on the new ones.
