December's Desire to Inspire Challenger Shows Off "Farm Life"



Sandie Larsen

Farm Life Fabric Arrival

A note from Sandie:

Oh I had so much fun with this!!

I made snack mats, soft bowls for small snacks, and zipper snack bags for taking along on day trips. I'm sorry if my pix are a little dark~ it is freezing here, dark, gloomy and the ground is covered with snow & ice, so I couldn't go outdoors for pix. :-/

I drew an image of the barn on freezer paper from the barn on the fabric for the snack mats. 
Then to hold the bias tape in place while I sewed, I used a double sided fusible tape. It worked great!  (pix 295 and 297)

I placed all the pieces on the batting, adding a backing and then quilted around the barn, barn doors & silo. I did organic wavy lines through the barn.  The little chick fabric made the cute binding.  The bowls are a smaller version of those microwave bowl cozies you see on-line, but I did not use microwave batting. I wanted these to be for my DGS in his high chair, they could be placed around a bowl, but they could also just be used for snacks~ gold fish, crackers, carrots etc. No harm done if he tosses his bowl! LOL (I was having such fun I forgot to take more photos!)

The zipper bags are all lined with rip-stop nylon. I did a lot of on-line research and found it is safe to use for food and many families have been using it for years. I guess I am just a little behind the times! LOL  I put grommets in the larger bags so they could be attached to a stroller or back pack. There are no exposed seams on the inside for any of the bags.  I didn't have any patterns, just made up the sizes as I went along. ;-)

Thank you so much for this opportunity! I enjoyed every minute behind my machine and dreaming about what to make. I know this is a very busy time of year-- I did oodles of Christmas sewing, but I often found myself playing around with these cute fabrics instead of doing the projects I should have finished. LOL Luckily I did get everything done I planned to do. I will be posting my Christmas sewing on my blog as time permits.

Happy New Year!
