Joining In - Zakka 2.0 Week 1

This is me. Singing out.  Joining my voice with all you other crafty people on the web in the Zakka 2.0 Sew Along on Flickr and linking up at LRStitched.  Taking on every project in Ayumi Takahashi's new book, Patchwork, Please!  

The first project (pictured above) is the Bell Pepper Coaster.  They are really adorable and easy to make.  In fact, it took me longer to choose my fabrics than to put them together.  I liked learning a new technique - they are sewn and then cut to flip - the cuts are hidden when you sew the two layers together.  I can see this might be handy in making art quilts.

As for the sew along...

Will I be sewing every project?

All I can say is: I've got a plan.  So stay tuned.  And come sing along with your sewing machine.

Also, if this is your first time to visit me at AndChips, welcome!

    1. Good eye! I said nearly the same thing on Flickr. http://www.flickr.com/photos/missenota/8953776400/

    2. I <3 ramune!

      Your niece thought the peppers were pumpkins.

    3. I'm insulted! (But maybe I left myself open to that one by making a coral/salmon-colored bell pepper.) Tell her the baby robins hatched at the cabin. :)


Thank you again for visiting AndChips!
