Design Wall Monday #01 – My Bits
A few weeks back I was wearing an itsy bitsy teeny weenie yellow polka dot bikini and nearly let all the goods show! Ow! Well today I found some cotton wadding and threw up an impromptu design wall in the hope of showcasing my bits. (When Mr. Sparkles is away, Molli will play!) So I’ve got about 250 (?) of these semi-wonky hourglass blocks, each measuring no more than 1.5″ across. They’ve been a pleasure to sew–a little self-flagellation is good for the soul, right?
Hanging tentatively on my design wall are 81 of them, which is about a 13.5″ square as you see below. The problem is, since they’re wonky, they’re not perfectly squared up to the same size. So it’s time for lil ole me to think outside the square box and find a way to make these little bitches get line.
Raw-edge appliqué? Sew to size? Grid lines? Hot glue? Slice and dice? Face lift? Botox? Wait, what are we talking about? Oh, it’s a challenge, but a design challenge that I’m all to eager too take on. I’ll keep you posted, that is if my fingers don’t turn inside out by the time I finish this little sucker. I may need an army of little people (read: children) soon, to make my factory complete. It’s not considered child labour if you don’t pay them, right?*
By the way, I’m sure there’s a Design Wall Monday linky party out there somewhere? What gives, where’s the party?
