Demo and shop samples

The boss is super busy right now, so demo #2 is mine. Another market find. (Did I mention that I love little stuff?) These are called Clam Shell Accessory Case. The little kit contains plastic forms for making the cases. They are easy to make but take a bit of time. Basically you cut batting and fabric about 1/2 inch larger than the form, do a large running stitch, then put the form with the batt glued to it onto the fabric and draw up the edges. Sew the lining to the outer fabric. then sew the three pieces together. There are small ,medium, and large sizes.

This one I beaded and stitched so the flowers would pop a bit. The Clover project sheet also shows some made with needle punch, some cross stitch, and some fun fabrics.

When this panel came into the shop I wanted to do something with it. I made this cute little Halloween pillow.

I also made this little table topper for the shop. Wish that I had time to make something with every fabric that comes in. LOL

Happy stitching


  1. That would be my trouble, too, if I worked at a quilt shop! All those lovely fabrics need a project! These are wonderful - thanks for sharing!

  2. Those cases look like a lot of fun. Do they just pop open and shut, or is there some kind of closure?

    It would be dangerous to work in a quilt shop, I think. Especially if there's an employee discount. :)

  3. You get to see all the cute new projects, don't you? The shop owner is lucky to have your help! ---"Love"

  4. Geez, to work in a fabric shop. All that lovely fabric, there for the using and you don't have to take a single piece home! You do beautiful work!
