…Creating on the Hill…

Life is about the people you meet and the things you create with them

…an owl to cuddle…


I wanted to make a hot water bottle cover this Christmas for a pressie

waterbottle cover 1

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.

The Crafts House is a small studio on top of a "hill"..a place to create..a place to breathe..a time just for you.. I'm the luckiest person to spend my days creating the art that i love..meeting like minded creative friends..sharing time in the palette of life..

  1. I love it. Perhaps we can turn this into a tablet/phone cover. The possibilities are endless. Thanks for sharing Sandra.


  2. How fabulous, great to be able to turn practice pieces into something so useful.
