ScrapHappy APRIL 2023

Good morning friends, it’s that wonderful time again.

I have had a few weeks of absolutely no sewing or creating as I’ve been on mummy/nana duty to my elder daughter who is a brand new mum 😍. She is doing well but I’m there as all Nana’s are as back up 🤍 My granddaughter is doing well & needless to say we are besotted.

I did get a little time to do a couple of scrappy projects. I’ve been wanting to try out these as I’ve seen them made on YouTube.

The first one is a set of coasters. Mother’s Day is coming up and I wanted to make something for my friends and I will put a teabag with each and wrap it up with a lot of love and give it to them.

The second project is a basket. Again something I have seen made on YouTube and wanted to try it out. I’m very happy with the result and this ScrapHappy Basket will be a present for my future daughter in law’s mum who loves everything I make and loves the colour green.

Every piece I’ve made has been made from scraps. I have a few 5” squares that have been lying in a box for a long time with not enough to make any large quilt. The fabric for the basket was given to me by a friend as an off cut she found at a market and picked it up as she knew I’d make something with it. I made a baby blanket with the piece and this was the leftover scrap which I had to join in a few places to make one piece to cut out the basket.

ScrapHappy days are days I like coz’ I don’t have to overthink what I’m going to make & the projects are small and doable in a short time. I love the creative side that comes out in me and even though these days I’m fighting to get decent sewing time I’ve still got a bit of time to make something pretty & best of all I can present them to my friends.
