Lets Book It

Sharon from HeRe... host this group each month.
In 2015 Shez & I are trying to use our Nancy Halvorsen books...so each month we will pick a book & make something out of it.

January's choice is Star of Wonder... & the use of the matching panel.
I chose to make 3 cushions.
A small one... Star... which measures 4 x 4 1/2in.
A medium one... Angel... measuring 6 1/2 in square.
And a larger one using several pieces of the panel & some embroidery... & a button. This cushion measures 16 inch square.

Thanks Sharon for encouraging us to use our books
& not just leaving them on a shelf.

You can play along too... just visit Sharon HERE.

I don't have the book, but I do have bits of the panel and you give me some great inspiration for them. Always more fun to sew along with someone - thank you for linking up.

That is so cute! I have a similar panel, or part of a panel. I don't remember if I had a purpose for it when I bought it, but I think a pillow sounds like a good use. Thanks!

These are lovely. We sometimes do need a little nudge.
