When I started quilting and sewing again I knew I would want to come up with someway to label everything. If not for now the future. I found a label company while reading another quilters blog and with her help and Freyza the owner, I received the most lovely labels to sew into my projects. I have since ordered labels for my mother-in-law is navy with silver print with a graphic, and they were just as fantastic, and my mother-in-law was thrilled! When I started getting inquiries about where I purchased my labels, I contacted ikaprint and Frezya has made a 5% off coupon code for you to use if you wish to order labels of your own. Just type upstairshobbyroom in the coupon code area before you finish your order!
What I've Been Up To:
I'm really happy with the way this one is turning out, even though I chose the easier layout and very simple quilting!! All that is left now is choosing the binding and sewing it on!! (oh and adding a label!!!)
I completed the November block for The Sugar Block Club. One more block to go. I was so happy with this blocks turn out, wasn't sure about the plaid fussy cut, but I love it!!I knit the Gap-tastic Cowl so pretty! I didn't have any chunky yarn so I just doubled up worsted weight, and it turned out great!
I had fun with these (73) I just did very simply (74) I used 4 fabrics instead of the 2 the pattern asked for, partly because I thought it would look interesting and partly because I want to use up some of the scraps making these blocks creates. (75) I flipped the pattern and solids, and I used a different fabric for every little square! and it turned out awesome!!!
I love your advent calendar! The trees across the top are really cute!ReplyDelete
Thanks Kuka! To different QALs, but the blocks were the same size, it was meant to be!!Delete
Your advent calender turned out fantastic! And thanks for the link to the labels, i've been meaning to have some made up but haven't been able to decide on where to get them done. Yours look great!ReplyDelete
Thanks Snips! I was a little overwhelmed the first time I went to her sight, but you can email her and ask her questions, she's great to deal with and prompt with response. It's also the reason I posted the label specs picture so you would be able to see what you can put on a label that size. I wish I would have taken a picture of my mother-in-law's. I had the little heart flower graphic added on hers, it looked great. Anyway check it out there are a lot of options.Delete
