Mollie Makes subscription packs - your makes so far!

We were very excited to be asked by Mollie Makes magazine to supply this months subscription pack. We put together a gorgeous little fabric bundle with buttons and ribbons. 

We have been asking for your pictures of what you have made with the packs and we have received some fantastic pictures. So we thought we would share some of them with you. 

Firstly, These cute baby booties made by Anna.
A great little handmade gift as it used up some scraps and will be totally unique.

Then, cushions! we had two different designs sent in. The first lovely cushions were made using the fat 8ths (which were the perfect size to make an envelope cushion back who 
knew!) Anna has even made little ties to hold them closed like on the Sewing Bee! 

The 2nd cushion has been turned into a patchwork seat pad. Vickie has cut 5"squares and sewed them together to cover a foam pad to go on the hard chairs. Perfect for her mum's new chairs.

Becki has created note book covers. There was enough fabric in the pack to cover 3 notebooks, with additional decorations using the ribbon and buttons. 

Making a frame purse, worked really well in the baby blue polka dot. It was a sew on frame so no glue needed! Decorated with a bow and button naturally.

The last project is still work in progress. This hexagon quilt is being made up of 2 1/2" hexagons cut from the fabric in the bundle. The hexagons have been hand stitched into flowers and then placed on 10" squares of plain ivory cotton. There will 21 squares altogether and a boarder to create a quilt approx 1m x 2m . All the fabric has been prepared, now its just the hand sewing of the hexagons to finish. 
We would love to see more of your projects. Please send us in any pictures you have of your makes using your fabric bundle or any of the Millie Moon fabrics. We love seeing what you are making. 

And if you haven't picked up a copy of Mollie Makes yet, then its well worth a read, with loads of ideas to inspire you.
