We haven't found a permanent place to live yet, so I don't want to put up a full design wall. But I found this GREAT tutorial to make mini design boards!
Mini design Board! from bee in my bonnet!
I love it, because Minnie likes to sit in my space next to my sewing machine, and my ironing board is on the other, so I have to roll all around trying to get a block put together! This way I can leave it in my lap or even on my ironing board.
In the tutorial she made them 10x10 so she was able to get 6 from one board. Well most blocks I make are around 12" so I wanted it a little bigger. I made one board 15.5" (that foam board is hard to cut!) and one 14", so I only got two!
It took FOREVER because the tube of fabric I did for the border took forever to turn right side out. I thought about it, next time I am just using ribbon!!
Here is my board!
Here is my board with a block on it! I can't wait!
