Ever wondered what to make with your fat quarters or half metres? In the Fabulously Fast Fat Quarter Fun patterns series, I will teach you how to get the most out of a four piece fat quarter bundle or two half metres of beautiful fabric, ensuring almost every piece of fabric is sewn up into super-cute projects.
Issue 4 – ‘Sew Outdoors’ was designed in the summer of 2020 when we were enjoying the beautiful sunshine and extra garden time during lockdown and I felt our BBQ table was missing a pretty basket for bread rolls and pretty bowl cosies to highlight the salads and dips, not to mention a super pretty mug rug for a glass of wine or two. The patterns are perfect if like me you love fast, easy yet super useful opportunities to showcase those beautiful fabrics. Adding beautiful fabrics and enjoying the journey of sewing is so important to me as I love to sew both useful and pretty projects.
These patterns have been designed to get the most from a four piece fat quarter bundle but your kit contains plenty of fabric to allow you to make extra bowl cosies and mug rugs.
Your kit includes:
- a full colour step-by-step A5 instruction booklet for three fabulous projects with detailed instructions, both written and photos, to take you through each step. Your pattern booklet will also tell you what additional materials and equipment you will need.
- Two half metres of complimentary cotton fabric
- 1 piece of foam to make the basket
- A welcome letter with a link to a private YouTube pre-recorded tutorial for the beautiful basket
You will need:
- Sewing machine
- Heat erasable pen
- Glue pen (optional)
- Walking foot (optional)
