~Four Fat Quarters~

What can you do with four coordinating fat quarters?

A lot!

Here's what I made:

~A tea cozy~

~A tiny zipper pouch~

~Another zipper pouch~

~Lining for a small purse~

~A wristlet~

~Another wristlet~

~Another little zipper pouch~

This is going in my purse to hold travel size dental floss, and some mints. I used all four fabrics for this pouch. The back is made with the pink polka-dots, and the lining is made from the blue patterned fabric.

~A coaster~

I pieced this out of 1 1/2" squares. A fun little project! The backing is the larger flowered print. I hand quilted it, then bound it with bias tape. The binding is a little wonky! LOL This is going to have a home in my sewing room, when I bring my tea in I'll have a place to put it!

~What's left?~

Tiny little scraps! This is all that I have left! I'd say I made good use of the fat quarters! *Smiles*

Wow Tammy, I'm impressed! I don't normally do as well with fabric like that.

That tea cozy is beautiful. Did you follow a pattern to make it? I'd love to know the pattern number if you did.

Susan said...

Wow! I need you to come and look through my fabric stash and tell me what to make! LOL

Ashley said...

Wow you did so many projects with not much fabric. I need to learn how to make things without wasting any fabric.

Good job!

Wow...very impressive. I love the tea cozy. I started collecting tea pots recently so I'm sure I'll need one of these in the future!
