My Picture Pie Purse

>> Thursday, February 1, 2007

I'm a huge Ed Emberley fan and we got Jo a couple of his Picture Pie books for Solstice. We made lots of pictures from construction paper - but the whole time I was thinking that these would make great applique patterns. We've been pretty busy lately getting the house on the market, but I did get this bit of crafting done.

I made the mistake of using some fusible batting scraps and quilting the pieces before I did the satin stitching on the applique. My machine didn't like satin stitching through so many layers (especially since one of the fabrics I used was a thick upholstery fabric) but we survived and now this is my new favorite purse. I think these birds are from Ed Emberley's Picture Pie 2, but those books just got packed up so now I can't check to be sure.
