|Sketching out ideas while watching the history channel!|
I tried looking up some simple softie patterns online that would work, but I didn't find anything that I liked. The problem with working with recycled or sample size fabric is that you are limited to very small projects if you want everything to match. Most of the book fabric that I have is maybe 8" by 6" (or something like that) and each piece in the book is a different colorway or pattern. So you can get a bunch of different fabrics that go together pretty easily, its just the matching them that is hard. And I don't want a super hard patchwork project. SO the person above is the simple "pattern" that I drew out. I figure if I make it small and mess around with a few diff fabrics it should be good.
