I wanted to make a hot water bottle cover this Christmas for a pressie
a little while ago my creative buddie helped me make a strippy quilt..before we started the quilt i had a practice
and made a small sample…i was so glad i did,it really helped with the quilt
after i had put the binding on (poor Lucie had to explain a few times before it sank into my mixed media brain!!)
..Lucie really does have a great method for binding..she has a tutorial on her blog
I folded the sample to make a pocket..
I then cut out felt embellishments and attached them to the cover…I am so chuffed because
the person this was for has had a lot of warmth from this ever since.
