Next, I decided instead of wrapping up these Lori Holt blocks, I should buy Farm Girl Vintage 2 and keep on sewing. So I started with a nice easy pair of Acorn blocks. Love how they came out!
I was kind of sad that the four books I own by Lori Holt (and several PDF's) did not have a puppy block! Luckily Barb had the Christmas book and borrowed it to me for this puppy! It was fun to make.
Then I got crazy and cut for a pair of Rise and Shine Rooster blocks. I then took some of Lori's advice and tried to lay it out to help me with getting the fabrics right. I use my board that I made from her tutorial for each block. I wish I had made another smaller one to keep! I love all the colors in this one, but way easier to screw it up.
I also made a bunch of beanbag fish and stuffed them with rice. I had cut them out a few weeks ago and now they are all sewn. Will be gifting to Saxon and Hazel.
I already put corduroy backs on these two and plan to tie them. Kathy and I picked up a freebie back of fabric last week and it had a few huge chunks of corduroy. There was some cotton and lots of fleece. I also made a seat cover for our huge recliner because Lombardi keeps it pretty hairy! I have a blanket I put on it but now I am hoping this will work better.
