PennyDog Vlog #11 – August 20th 2017

I’ve been a bit obsessive with making fabric jewellery this week, but if you’re looking for my Etsy shop where you can find these fabric hexie pendants, it is HERE! Also in this update, some new Spoonflower fabrics, progress on moving house, my Quilt As You Go class, a little bit done of Bear in the […]

PennyDog Vlog #10 – August 14th 2017 – Where’d I go this weekend?

Here is my vlog, again, I’m late, getting good at that, but I have a really good excuse, I promise.   On Saturday we bought a house! My day was taken up with viewings and realtor stuff, I managed a bit of cutting out for my first project from Windy City Bags by Sara Lawson […]

Something a bit silly… this is Tabbytha

I made this – for a reason – and it was deemed, well I guess a bit crazy without using that word! I think it’s kind of cool still though! This is Tabbytha… I am aware that she needs a bigger cushion sham inside, I will have to go out and buy one since I […]

PennyDog Vlog #9 – August 7th 2017

I was making videos for my class this weekend, so this is one of FOUR I made. It was a bank holiday yesterday too so it meant I delayed this one a day while I sorted the class ones out. I finished making two bags and they’re pretty! Come and see! The foxy Blanche Barrel […]

A Finish: Antique Shop Floor

Sometimes I can be forgetful. In my hurry to get my quilt finished and in my suitcase when we flew back to the UK at the start of June, I neglected to photograph it! It’s going to be at least a year before I get it back because I don’t have another flight planned just […]

PennyDog Vlog #8 – July 30th 2017

I made two videos this weekend, one on interfacing and what the differences are between different types (and there was some filming I did around the shop, but the video was corrupted) which is here: And I also did my weekly vlog. I’ve been working on a few things, mostly for classes so it’s a […]

Feedback

I got notes back from the Stampede show, I’m pretty pleased with them and will enter again next year for sure. Next year too, I will wash the quilt before taking it along if it’s been to another show as I noticed dirt in the corner from when it was at the Heritage Park Festival […]

PennyDog Vlog #7 – July 22nd 2017

I’ve finished all the blocks on the Bear in the Log Cabin quilt, and I give you an honest look at sewing the sashing, why I decided I needed to use pins for this top, my choices for backing and batting and thread. Hank makes a guest appearance and a reminder… If you subscribe to […]

Satisfying

Isn’t shopping your stash great? I’m making this Nora bag by Swoon Patterns with supplies I already had – minus the interfacing and stabiliser that I had to buy. And the boning I bought a few weeks back. The bird fabric I bought at least 2 years ago, probably more than 3 years ago. It […]

PennyDog Vlog #6 – July 16th 2017

I thought this would be a good time to talk about bag making. I’m a bit scared because the week after this one I have to teach Blanche to a full class! Scary! I also talk about a couple of bag patterns I have, one of them is free! Other things I talk about with […]
