Tooth Fairy Quilted Wall Hanging
Hello all, I hope you are enjoying our articles and posts on IACW, I know we are all enjoying doing them for you. I got the inspiration for this hanging from Somerset Studio November/December 2006 (volume10 Issue6) the article was ATC Pocket Quilts. As soon as I looked at it, it gave me the idea of a tooth fairy hanging for my daughter; with a little pocket perfect for her tooth and the pennies the tooth fairy leaves. I followed the same principle as the ATC Quilt but made it larger and just played with fabric, lace, sequins and beads until I was happy. I have also made a birth sampler for a friend using the same idea. You will need - off cuts of fabric, wadding, net/tulle, fabric stiffener, lace, linen (I used 28 count), ink pad and alphabet stamps, beads and any other bits and bobs you may have lying around in your stash. I used 2 layers of fabric with wadding, netting and fabric stiffener in between, pinned it all together, then added the lace and stamped linen. When I was happy with the placements I used my sewing machine to stitch through all the layers to give it a quilted look, added the safety pin with the beads and its perfect for the little fairy in your life. Enjoy playing, Trish xxx This weeks sponsor is http://www.papermaze.co.uk/ the lovely Ness has offered a £25 voucher to the winner, so don’t forget to leave a comment this weekend to be in with a chance of winning.
