Ok... so top layer now done. I have sewn on the light pink as shown here and I think I will use the black as the binding. For the back I have some fantastic pinky purple fabric with stars- It will look great! Now I need a quilting foot.... I don't have one and all the quilts I have done before haven't been machine sewn ontop- lets try something new!!
With the quilt so nearly at the final stages my fingers got itchy and I decided I wanted to make a rabbit. A normal 2D rabit is easy but I really want to make a nice fat 3D one... here is how it went.
When I first got my sewing maching I made this little guy- I drew a sea horse on paper, cut it out and stuck it togther. Then when I was happy with the shapes I unstuck it and make it from cloth. Very squint and hard sewing but this one is a keeper.
And here is how it goes so far with the rabbit...
Paper sketches for ideas on how the head would be 3D. What zone I wanted to try and enlarge. Then making a small prototype from Fabric. I will give this to the kids at work if I don't like it too much but its coming along nicely- and it was fast to do. 2 hours I think. The body and arms I have sewn too but I need to buy filling.
- Nose needs stabiliser- folds in with the triangle zone. Waiting for the wadding to see final product.
- Ears could be a fraction bigger.
- Eyes? Tail? Hmmm.
