For the third scrap class, we were supposed to bring scrap strings (narrow strips of fabric). As usual, I came with nothing and used some of the instructor’s scraps. She said to grab random ones, but I’m not so good at that, so I grabbed blues and greens. We sewed them together the long way, then used a 60 degree triangle ruler to cut six triangles. She said to do the same thing again with new scraps. I chose reds and oranges and ended the class with this:
The class project was the make a star out of them with a white fabric background, and I bought the white fabric for it, but I didn’t love it. When I put the pieces on black to take this photo, wowza! I fell in love with it.
Now I just need to get up the courage to attempt (AGAIN) to sew straight 1/4″ seams and get this put together. It’ll be too big for a pillow cover, so it’s going to be a wall hanging–I even know who it’ll be for.
