Would you like a sneak peak at what I've made for my Need a Needle Book swap partner? It's a scissors fob! I love how it's turned out. I found out my partner likes turquoise and as I've been curious about trying out piecing small squares, I thought I'd give it a go (the squares are 1.5").
The piecing technique is by Oh! Fransson, using light weight interfacing. The first time around I made a mistake because I took the roll I use for appliquè and ironed the squares on that. Afterwards I realised my mistake and that the other side of the squares was now sticky too! So I started over again, this time taking the right roll off my shelf! I used a specific product made for this technique by Vlieseline: Quilter's Grid. I must say I'm impressed by how precise the squares match together without me having to fidget around with them. They came together like magic! Really, I'm not exaggerating.
I hope my partner likes it! I think it would also make a handy mini pin cushion. I'm tempted to make one of these to hang from my car mirror, what do you think?
There is also a needle book coming, of course...
