Description

This is my project for August for the Pretty in Patchwork Holidays Sew Along.

I used scraps left over from a charm pack of Sopie by Chez Moi and a nice linen I had in my stash, along with a text print from The Dressmaking Collection - Vintage Notions by Amy Barickman

I was a little disappointed that I made my elastic a bit short and so, although it works, it is a bit tight. Next time I'd make a bigger loop (the directions didn't say how big to make the loop and I just guessed).

LOVE it the colors are beautiful! It almost looked like flannel for a minute. Guess my mind is in Fall mode already.

Skynme Thanks! The colors are a bit "fallish" aren't they?

Love it! You did great. And my elastic is a little to short also. Frustrated me that it didn't say how long to make it. Great job since it is the first time you have done something like this. I knew yours would come out great.

Quilt455 Thanks, Cathie. You were right- it was easy, but it was frustrating that the elastic wasn't quite long enough (I should have gotten a clue with how much you gave me! LOL)

Love your fabrics- I am an Amy Barickman fan- have har books and a closely guarded stash of several of her lines and have learned to buy them early as they seem to sell out overnight almost!!! Rats on the elastic- could you slip not a second loop onto the first- not sure but maybe it would work???

Caribousmom

Mymble It is the first of her fabric I've seen - and I got it on sale for $5 a yard!!! Which made me happy :) Re: the elastic - it works, Margaret...but it pulls a little too tight. I needed about another 1/8th of an inch or so to make it perfect.
