If you love patchwork sewing you have got to check out Ayumi at the Pink Penguin. She posted this tutorial over a year ago and it immediately went on my list of things to sew. I made 2 of these babies in December. Teacher gifts. Then I made 3 more last weekend. Gifts for sister-in-laws and one for me.
Aren't these A-DORA-BLE (why does Dora infiltrate my life in every way???!!)
The grey one is mine. I love grey. Everything about grey. We just painted our master bedroom Glidden Dolphin Grey. Love it.
A couple things about the tutorial. I love it because Ayumi always uses a 1/4 inch seam allowance. The tutorial is flawless. Make sure when you sew your casing for the flex frame onto the panels there is at least a 1/4 inch on both sides. (It won't be a problem if your cutting is accurate), but you need at least 1/4 inch so you don't sew over the casing. Just make sure when you sew the panels together that you don't sew over the casing!! You may just have to do a little seam ripping... not that I'm speaking from experience ;)
Now onto the winner......
