This past week was hot, hot, HOT. Way too hot. It was 111 on Wednesday, and my poor AC couldn't even keep up. So we stayed in the house a lot, and I got some sewing done in the afternoons. Right now it 78, and all I can say is fall can't come soon enough!
So, this week I took a break from sewing the kid clothes to work on my swap package for the Urban Home Goods Swap. I was working on these hexies all over vacation for this fall inspired sewing machine cover. I love how it turned out, and hope my partners loves it too! I was inspired by the sewing machine cover in the book "I Love Patchwork". One of my favorite crafting books right now. I just switched the strips of fabric she uses for the hexagons and added a scrappy binding because I thought the plain white side needed some pop of color.
I also made my partner a big coaster or "mug rug" for her coffee or tea for when she sews! This was a fun simple little project. There is also a Scrappy Mug Rug Swap getting under way if you are interested!
I also made this mug rug for myself. I love Castle Peeps, and I used one of the block patterns from the first issue of Fat Quarterly by Comfortstitching. I love how the King is waving hello!
