So this week I worked on a block for the Glorious Autumn Block Party. (See post above). And I tried something new with it. I made detachable stuffed 2 sided appliques. (or at least that is what I am calling them, I am sure there is an actual name for them :) I have used the whole sew around the edge, turn through the hole, stuff, and close technique before but never with adding a buttonhole to the center to allow you the ability to attach and detach.
Here's the block. Cute huh!! It goes along with the story 5 Little Pumpkins.
So now, when we read the story, we can remove each pumpkin as the roll away :) I just have to turn it into a pillow now so it is a little durable for the kids :) Here's hoping I get to that before Halloween!!
So that's what I have been doing . . . How about you???
Link on up :)
