As part of Alyssa Lyncher's, Pin It! Sew It!, I've completed my version of a sewing machine cover by Ellison Lane Quilts. Tutorial found here. Her version: My version: I measured the cover to fit my Bernina 820 (the Hoss) and the measurements were RIGHT ON. As in, next time I'll add another 1/2" to 1" for a little more clearance. I also created mine to have closed ends and used Malka Dubrawsky's, Stitch in Color, for the patchwork sewing machine. I just love the fabrics. The tutorial was easy to follow and Ellison Lane Quilts has some pretty awesome tutorials. You should check out her blog. Thanks to Alyssa for starting the Pin It! Sew It! linkup. It's always fun to see what others 're'create.
I wanted to introduce you to Humphrey the Bonzo Hound
Now, honestly, I’m not sure what a Bonzo Hound is, but that’s the name the pattern gave him so that’s what I’m going with. I picked this up on the Bustle & Sew site and made him up in Malka Dubrawsky’s Stitch in Color fabric. Unfortunately, the photo doesn’t do him justice and the colors are not coming through as well as they should.
Humphrey is going to one of the best little boys in the whole wide world. My nine month old grandson, Paxton, will have tubes put in his ears tomorrow and I thought he would love a friend for the occasion. Paxton loves colors and patterns and I think he and Humphrey will get along fine.
This photo really shows the glare, but I thought you might like to see the underside of his (brown) ear. This fabric is an awesome orange and pink fabric that goes great with Stitch in Color.
I recently finished a Craftsy class by Malka Dubrawsky and can’t wait to try dying my own fabric. I’m sure if you check back, you will see some of the results. If you haven’t seen what Craftsy has to offer, you really need to check them out. They have some truly awesome online learning opportunities.
