That's my boy!

He did it!

First thing this morning we, well he, got on with finishing the Creeper cushion.  I pulled a piece of duck cloth for a bit of fun speed stitching, attaching it to a piece of batting for lining.  Then a simple envelope back was prepared, and hemmed by the youngster.

We layered everything, and there was guided rotary cutting to square it all up; so with stitch 11, a straight-zig-zag combo, the whole lot was stitched together.

Then it was time to turn through and reveal...


Oh what a happy boy!!!

Luckily I had an cushion pad the exact right size, so it could be a proper finish...


And because even he is no stranger to what sells, he did his best Alex V impression...


He's my #auriboy !!

A quick run down...
100 2.5" Sizzix cut squares of misc greens and black Sketch flannel
Pieced with Aurifil 50wt in 2860
Backing Klona Grey and Kona Sprout
Finished size 19" square
Designed and sewn by Master O aged 9

I enjoyed every minute, and the beaming smile he has been sporting all day has made it doubly worthwhile.

He now wants to make a quilt!

  17. Having spent the last three school days subbing in home ec, teaching sewing to 9th graders, I would have gladly had this one in the class to help out and pass on some of his wisdom! And to show those older kids how it's done and that it's FUN. :-)
