Basically this was a little experiment of mine. I wanted to try if you can use postage stamp technique with HSTs as well. Plus I wanted to use up scraps as well.
It is quick and fun technique. It is all ironed on lightweight interfacing. As you can see on the first pic those little points looks good without extra sweat and matching. I only used 1/4" foot with guide to keep all my seams even.
Half way through looked pretty interesting too.
I wanted to make pouch at first but I'm feeling cushion would be better to show off all this colorful happiness :) Are your eyes also drawn to the little hour glass block?
To hide some stains I used some fun panels as an applique on T-shirts. They are ready for blanket stitch.
Plus I'm still working on Elephant parade. I added thin satin ribbon as legs. At first I wanted to stitch them down all the way but I will only stitch at the bottom.
And do you remember my giant eye turtle? It is all fixed now :)
Linking up with Lorna where you also find all those fun animals from Elephant parade:
