Wow – we are going on 1/3 of the book finished! Today we start the 4th page. This post is going to be short and sweet – since you don’t need any pattern pieces or special sizing to collect your fabric for this one. It’s a scrap buster for sure and would look cute as a pillow as well! (If you are just starting find all the information you need on this Sew-Along page.)
I had a lot of fun making this page and finding all of the cute scraps I could fussy-cut. It was pretty quick to stitch up and I’ll include how to do that in the next tutorial. The last time I made this page I focused on solids and wrote the name of each colour on the page. I decided not to do that this time because I wasn’t particularly happy with the quality of the writing and can’t figure out how to do it in a more professional way this time around. (Ideas are welcome!) Of course, if you’d like to include the writing you can. If you choose solid colours for the stripes the writing will stand out better. You will also need a set of permanent fabric markers.
You will need:
- Fabric scraps: red, orange, yellow, green, blue, purple, white, gray/black – each at least 1 3/4″ wide
- Ribbons/Flowers/Embellishments: in the same colours as the fabrics (Remember, these might get chewed on! Choose safe items for small children/babies – ex: no buttons!)
- Ribbon: 3 1/2″ long for the side tab
- Page Interfacing: 1 piece exactly 9″x9″ square, medium weight fusible interfacing (you will have this from your Week 1 shopping list)
That’s it – really! Like I said, not much to do until next week. See you then!
