Pop!

I fished a waiting-to-be-finished piece out of my box and started playing. I even went shopping for more patriotic fabrics to be sure I had a good selection. Then I started sewing! Once I had it together and it was getting stuffed I thought it looked an awful lot like a firecracker. I measured a length of DMC and double twisted it, tied a knot in the bottom and with a giant-eyed needle pulled it through the top seam a voilà! One cute fuze to turn it into a firecracker!


Design ~ Pop!
Designer ~ Bent Creek
Fabric ~ 32 count Lugana, tea dyed
Fiber ~ DMC


I embellished the design with more of those star buttons I purchased a while back. At this rate, maybe I should go get another package! I hope to have a bunch of tuck pillows for a darling patriotic basket finished this year! Already working on another...

Thank you for visiting my blog today!
