# 28 !
It's something I can still see fairly easily, compared with other projects, so maybe one more? ( It is a good portable project.)
I then had the idea to vary it a little. Instead of 12 different coloured pentagons; just one colour - blue (in different shades ) . I could make it for a grown up instead of a small child. The idea grew. I decided to use fabric motifs using Broderie purse style. I found a fabric with many different teapots or services, that were about the right size. I reinforced them with iron on and cut them out. Using cotton machine thread I blanket stitched them on.
I then inserted the wound batting inner leaving some seams open to get it in.
Using a contrasting thread from my left overs
I tacked / laced firmly the last seams shut.
I then proceeded to blanket stitch (with a double wind that stays firm ) the final seams - from the outside this time. ( undoing the tacking as I got to it )
This is how it looks all sewn up.I then chain stitch over the seams 2 rows on either side and it covers the seam stitches.
The rows of chain go in opposite directions. I will vary the colours used but stick to those appearing in the motifs. Just the straight forward easy part to do now - the rows of chain around each of the 12 pentagons.
( the eggs have hatched - more on that when I get photos!)
