Remember a few posts back I wrote about "...what to look for when buying a pattern"? As you can see from my drawn linen that 'at least a 3" margin' doesn't apply to me when drawing for myself. In drawing patterns there is usually some odd size pieces of linen left. Naturally I like to conserve linen and will use small pieces for me. So I will sew a piece of cotton on the side which doesn't meet the 3" criteria. That way it will fit on my grippers while using up left over pieces of linen.
Plus I drew both horse patterns on the one linen but with enough space between the two to ensure there is enough between the patterns for binding.
Now I've got to start thinking about what to hook next. Will look thru my stash of patterns rather than considering drawing out something. Hmm, isn't that what I said before drawing out these two dang horses?
Have a great evening everyone.
