Noughts and Crosses

I got really excited about this project. A travelling board game with a difference. Made from old scraps and clothes. A little piece of patchwork quilting and some felt pieces that are held on with velcro. There’s even a handy little pocket at the back to hold all the pieces since they don’t all fit on the board at once. And its great, easy to pack and quite eye catching.

Encircled again – a great serging project

So I had to try this again. This time a pure circle, no patches, no seams, just a covered waistband for extra comfort. Its so easy, done mainly using a serger. Most of the effort went on smooth cutting.


I had to try a circle skirt but decided to patch it in eighths from my daughter’s ‘grown out of’ clothes. Its simply patched with a serger and roll hemmed, then attached to an elastic waist band. Raw and simple. She loves it!



Pouffe two

And my littlest one needed a pouffe too so I did a fishy one for him with an inner cushion and a patched zipped cover for washing.
