Wicked Blog Hop, My day!

Hello Dear Hoppers!
I love these hops!  I like looking at what others create and I love the extra push to get what I would love to create done, in fact this hop around I finished up super early.  I want to Thank Madame Samm and Wendy for making this a fantastic hop.  I first heard about Sew We Quilt during last year's Wicked Hop, so it is so cool that I get to participate in this years.

Now for who has been wicked, I am sure you have seen these fabrics, the Ghastlies.  I can just imagine that this is what they are saying.
And that is what I did, I made a lovely Sewing machine cover, with this group of gals on the front, plus some ruffles just for fun.

I invited the whole Ghastlie family over to be a part of this sewing room gift set.
Sewing Machine cover, Quilt Shop Wall Hanging, and a pumpkin pincushion.
  This Sewing Room set is on it's way to America, in fact I really hope it arrives tomorrow for Halloween, if it didn't today.  It is for Roxanne of Scrapbook-ChickADoodle, we did a PIF exchange, she sent me this lovely package and I was able to make a sewing machine cover with the material she sent, so I thought I would make her one too, she said she loved the ghastlies and the color red, so I hope she likes it.
The interior of the sewing machine cover can be used as a sewing mat, with pockets, you just put it under your machine while sewing.  The red fabric is actually an up-cycled Victoria Secret bra shelf tee, where the bra shelf did not fit and so was never worn, a really nice material to have against the skin or in this case against your machine.

I bound it with a silk ribbon and also made them as ties.
A sewing room isn't complete with out your very own Quilt Shop Wall Hanging, this is a modified version of Carrie Payne's "Quilt Shop", I own the pattern and plan on making a real one in a few months for my sewing room.  This is the "Wicked Girl" version, because I am sure every little girl calls all fabric MINE!

This little girl has shelves loaded with Boo Crew and Road 15 fabrics from Sweetwater, plus her sewing machine and lots of orange fabrics.

I also made a pumpkin pincushion to go with the sewing set and now it is perfect, Thank you Madame Samm for a great tutorial.

Make sure you check out everyone else's Wicked creations today.

  47. How Ghastly! And Wickedly fun. It doesn't look like it is on your route but if you do swing a little farther south in California you should visit Quilt in a Day and Cozy Quilt Shop. Also if you have a smart phone There is a free app called Quilt Shops that finds nearby quilt shops for you. I never travel without it. Welcome to America! I hope you enjoy your visit!
