Chomp.

The final product!

 

I thought I would share one of my recent sewing projects that ended up being a holiday gift for my sister’s cat, Tuna. I know, I know….presents for cats……we’re a strange family around here.

I used the same technique as I did for Stella’s quilt, which I made a few¬†months back. I simply picked a few fabrics I liked, the main one being these cartoon sharks, cut them into different sized strips, sewed ’em together, batted the back, quilted a bit, then finished it off with self-binding edges. It’s really so simple ūüôā

Things I learned with this project:

When using a fun patterned fabric, be sure to give yourself additional fabric for seam allowances РI lost a few sharks that way because I forgot to calculate the actual sewing part. My bad.

When piecing this bad boy together, I laid out the strips¬†in the order I want¬†them to be¬†then sewed the first and second ones together, third and forth together, and so on. Once those¬†were paired up, I¬†went back and pair them up again…and again….until they¬†were all sewed together. This method helps keep your sewing lines straight and your fabric from going wonky. I found this blog to be helpful!

The top layer is done!

 

Always a fan of pressing the seams.

 

Pin it up, quilt it out.
