Dryer sheet stitching & giveaway winner

Over the last little while I have been playing with a single feather motif. In this case, a dryer sheet that I prepared with paper backed, fusible web, was cut in the feather shape and simply fused onto cotton. I love the transparency of this.


Stitching finishes it nicely






I hope you were able to come by earlier this week and check out the blog-hop, wasn't it interesting to to see how we all did the same design in such different ways?


Thank you to all who left a comment, the winner of her choice of the two featured Terri Stegmiller patterns is Penny who said:  "great patterns and a lovely give away, Love them both, they made me smile. Especially the butterfly one"

But don't forget each participating blog is naming a winner so check them all.

If you would like to make your own version of these whimsical designs, Terri's patterns are available in her Etsy shop.

What a fabulous source for unique fiber material....right there in the laundry room. Love the effect it provided. Clever as always!!!

Dryer sheets are a boon to mankind. I have heard that they can be used when appliqueing tricky shaped pieces. You sew around the entire applique shape, right sides together and then cut a slit in the dryer sheet and turn, press and applique.
sounds pretty slick.

I'm liking the elegance of this--and the fmq enhances the feather design so well. Wishing you a happy holiday season with your loved ones!
best, nadia

I always love what you do with dryer sheets -- one of these days, I'm going to try one of your many treatments and have some fun.

I always save my dryer sheets and use them mostly for gift wrapping...like tissue paper. However your feather is beautiful with the soft fibers in the sheet. Congratulations to Penny. Stitching Featherly Bliss...
