Patchwork Gifts Book Tour

Good Morning!  Today is my day on Elise's Patchwork Gifts Book Tour.  I've been very excited about this book since Elise announced it.  Count me in as a fan of Elise and Emilie on Instagram, I've even done some EPP just so I could stitch up some of those cute Dilly flowers.   
Thanks to Tuva Publishing for sending me an advance copy so I could start working on  my projects.  First thing up was the adorable mushroom shown on the cover.   Why oh why have I never used my hemostats to stuff anything before.  I've had them for years.   The pattern is so easy to sew up by machine, and really once you start sewing them you can't stop.  And the hemostats really get that stuffing into the tiny spaces.  I feel foolish for not trying them sooner.

When I chose my 'official' project for the book your, I chose the Bon Bon Pouch.  The list of makers on this tour is pretty intimidating and I didn't want to venture out beyond my capabilities of making something that would turn out book tour quality.   I had some of the cute Peko fabric from Sunny Day Supply so I checked with my sunny friends to order some coordinates and the supplies needed.

The templates for this project are wonderful.  Elise uses a classic method of marking I learned many years ago, and my darts and match points ended up perfect.  I love that she has you cut the interfacing smaller so it doesn't end up in the seam, this makes for a nice crisp edge.  The bag works up so cute.  I had never used those  beads  for the pull ties before,  and I'm definitely not a genius about it but they're so cute.  Really, those knots should be inside the bead.  Don't judge me too harshly.


In my excitement I forgot to add some trim in the seams but it still turned out so cute.  I pulled out my cute Heidi Staples fabric to make a cute cherry version that includes some rick rack. 


I couldn't stop with those mushrooms.  Cheri made the cutest mushrooms with lace frills and I loved them.  Check them out here.

I hope you check out the Patchwork Gifts book. There are plenty of projects for gift giving or keeping, and many techniques are covered.  Elise's instructions are great and the book is a pretty one.  I love when the pictures are pretty don't you? 
And now since you've followed along  leave me a comment today for a chance to win everything you need to make this little BonBon pouch. (you will need the book)  The girls at Sunny Day have packaged it all up for me in their cute way, so it's extra adorable.    I'll chose a winner this coming Friday. 

Thanks for following along,  and thanks to Elise for inviting me to participate.  I love her new book and I think it would be a great addition for your library of sweet sewing books!  There's a lot of cute projects included!!! xop
