Laura’s Appliqué Feathers

I love using interesting fabrics in my projects and had great fun going through my stashes auditioning them. I wanted large feathers for a runner using fabrics that would make them colorful and each one a little different from the other.

Cottage Love Collection

Cottage Love 6-Inch

Links to each collection can be found at the bottom of this page

I’ve been holding onto this artwork for a long time but I didn’t think anyone would be interested in embroidery cottages. I decided to start making these anyway. I love them myself and am anxious to make projects with them. I have so many projects in mind for them. 

I created several hand look stitches for sewing onto heavier fabrics like fleece and wool, but incorporated them into these sew outs as well for truly original designs. These sew outs I used regular quilting cotton fabrics as well. They are full of details. I can’t stop looking at them!

There are 3 appliques in these designs – house, roof, and dormer.

Made with love – Erica Hobb’s Walker Bag Story…

Made with love by someone like you…

Erica Hobbs made this stunning walker bag. She matched the fabric design so perfectly you have to look close to see the line where the top edge of the pocket is located

Made with love – Maeva Bennett’s Walker Bag Story…

Made with love by someone like you…

“Thank you for the pattern for the walker bag – I made it this morning with a few modifications – I put a double pocket inside the bag for valuables and small items and a closure strap to hold the bag closed when walking or if it tips over.

My Aunt 84, for whom I made the bag, is quite frail but loves to carry her handbag in the wire basket on her walker, which is how it was subsequently stolen in a snatch and grab, which has given her a huge shock and set back her health and confidence no end.

Hopefully, this new cheery bag will brighten up her day and give a renewed sense of security.”
