Surprising that my mess turned into this…

I was not sure that I had a whole lot of hope for this piece.   I thought it might be pretty, 20171001_195117_resized (1) but getting it laid out so the iron on bias tape would cover properly was quite a trick.  It took me more time to lay it out than to sew and bind.

I am pretty sure I had the iron on binding tape for about 15 years.  surprisingly it still worked and stuck when I ironed it on.  It would have looked better with gold metallic but I did not have any.  Seems like there is not much of this stuff around.  Only found a couple of colors at  Oddly one of them was gold.  Still looks nice with the yellow.

If Mom was here, I would have finished this into a table topper and taken it to her.  She loved Poinsettia’s.  Each year around the holidays I would always take her the biggest one I could find.  This is going to hang on my front door and every time I look at it, I will think of her.

I might make a table topper for myself.  I would have to use different colors because I would have to use up the bias tape that I have.  Maybe Blue or Pink.  Need to see what kind of fabric I can find that would work.  We shall see.

Happy Sewing
