When my dear friend Becca of sewingstadium.com asked me to join the Katy Kat New Year party I knew of course I had to join! I love love love her fun colours and fearless style! and of course her catchy songs ..... don;t judge. You know you sing along too!
For my sew I used TWO Molly & Mama patterns! The adorable Miss Molly Pincushion pattern and the Coco flower crown pattern!
My inspiration - California gurls! The bright yet pastel colours, all the pinks that make things almost look ombre and of course the little spot of teal in Snoop's outfit.
Now, I'll be honest.... my handstitching is nothing to write home about.... Thankfully I decided on the large flower pattern so it nicely covers most of it, or at least distracts from it.
I used heat and bond lite to attach some of Jennifer Paganelli's Nostalgia fabric to the side of the pin cushion felt. The heat and bond will prevent fraying and bond it well enough for a pincushion with the sewing.
Of course anything Katy needs a bit of bling and a bit of POP! So I found this gorgeous vintage glass button in my stash and added it to the top, a nice nod to snoop's outfit, and Katy's love of blue!
New year means time for new sews, challenging myself! This year I plan on blogging here on this blog, and adding some artistic element to most of my sews and makes. I also bought myself a large art kit.... Did you know canvas painting was my first 'craft' ?
What are your crafty 2016 goals ? Leave me a roar!
