Patchwork without Cutting Tools

It was fun, love, and great desire to learn quilt.

I’ve been sewing and knitting for the past 30 years. I have sew skills and experience as an owner and designer of a fashion house but never make patchwork.

My first patchwork  I made before Halloween 2012. I didn’t have special cutting tools but wanted to try. It was so difficult work but I started the project – Halloween patchwork table topper. I put lining from polyester fabric on the back side.

First option

Next year, I took off the lining and made from the old patchwork topper new quilted table topper.

Remodel process

Soon, after first patchwork project I bought the basic tools. From two old shirts and a box I made doll’s bed to my granddaughter. It was my first experience with the full quilting process and  using recycled materials.

I’m not afraid to remodel my life. Don’t afraid you too.

With love,

Iva 🙂

There is the pocket on the bottle costume allows you to include your personalized message. It can to be:
