Playing with Flower Sugar

During the past few days, I've enjoyed some quiet time with my machine.

Kids have been at school, FlyBoy still away (he returns Monday after a loooooong 2 months - yay!) so I set up The Good Wife on Netflix and played with my scrap tub. 

First up, I made a quilted kindle cover. I always worry that the screen will get scratched when it's in my handbag, so this has been the perfect solution.

It was very easy to make - I just QAYGed 2 pieces a little larger than the kindle. Attached binding on the edges which would be the top then sewed it together. I wasn't worried about a lining as it's just for my personal use and not going to be visible anyways.

I was very pleased with the result so decided to try my hand at a QAYG Zipper Pouch.

The pouch is strong and holds itself up beautifully because of the heavily quilted body.

The fear of zippers is slowly being overcome. Slowly. I love this pouch as it bright, happy and functional. I plan in using it to hold my rotary cutters.

The next day, I still has scraps of this beautiful fabric remaining, so I decided to make a QAYG notebook cover.

This is my personal favourite. With the practice from them previous 2 projects, the quilting on the notebook cover is much more even and straight.

The walking foot has been perfect for this type of sewing. I decided to bind the edges of the notebook. This binding holds together the cover and the sleeves where the notebook cover is inserted.

Guess what! I still have some scraps of Flower Sugar left. I'll play with them in some more QAYG projects next week.


  1. That's so pretty! My Kindle is in a boring brown leather cover. I think I might need to make one of these!

  2. Oh, Samelia!!! They are so beautiful, I love this colorful and happy fabric and your idea of quilting as you go. I think I will give it a try, it looks lovely!
