Iron Craft: Challenge #4: Get Cozy

If you click on the picture you will see a larger version.  You can see the flower stitch and then you can also see all the mistakes I made (oops).  A word in my defense, if I made another one, I would correct those mistakes.

I love being a part of this group.  Here is another thing on my list of things to make.  I was given the push I needed to make it.  Fun!

I used an elastic hair band as my elastic to go around the button.  I sewed it right into the seam.  I measured our and cut the shape of a cozy.  I sewed the batting onto my share.  I sewed on end right sides together, sewing the elastic in.  I turned and pressed 1/4 inch folds, then top stitched it into place.  All in all it was not perfect as I did not have a pattern.  Next time I get coffee I will save the cozy as my pattern.

Thanks Iron Crafters for a great challenge. If you would like to learn more about Iron Crafters, click the button below.

DId you use the flower stitch on your sewing machine to do the word? I so want to learn how to do that it looks so cute.

I did use the flower stitch. I thought it would involve loading special needles but it just uses the plain needle. I need to post a close up of that flower
