Sweet Tweets!

When Erin Cox of Why Not Sew? asked me to participate in her book blog hop....of course, I said YES!
 
I have known Erin for years and have long admired her adorable projects! Writing a book and sharing her ideas seemed like a natural next step. And, boy, I am so glad she took that step!
 
   
Sweet Tweets guides you through using raw edge applique and a technique called sketch applique to create sweet projects.
 
Erin includes tips on preparing the applique, which foot to use for sketching, and oodles of projects to make!
 
  
 
But you aren't limited to just the projects in the book. This book is a great jumping off point for using the templates and techniques to create your own sketch applique project!
And that is exactly what I did!
 
 
 
I used Erin's delightful birds and heart template and did a little sketching....
 
to make a pretty 'tweet' pencil pouch for a special little girl!
 
  
I added a fun yarn fringe pull!  I can't wait to give it to her!
Erin is having a big giveaway on the last day of the blog hop so be sure to head over here 
on Saturday September 26th!
 
If you would like to win your own e version of Sweet Tweets...leave a comment here! I will choose a winner on Saturday September 27th at 10 pm EDT. Good luck!
 
Have a 'tweet' day!
