'Winter Tales' Blog Tour

Hello hello! I'm so happy to be blogging again after a little break whilst I worked on my new book, Zakka Home. It's coming out in September so not long to go! I've got to say, I'm really proud of this book - every single project in it was a labour of love.

Today I wanted to show you what I've been making with Minki Kim's latest collection for Riley Blake Designs, 'Winter Tales'. Such a sweet winter-inspired collection and those soft pastel shades are just utterly scrumptious.

The first thing I made was this mini quilt - the pattern is called 'Backyard Chicks' and available in my Etsy shop in PDF and paper formats. This pattern depicts a group of little chicks in a feeding frenzy, but squint and you can also see snowflakes!

We are actually in the midst of winter here in Australia, so I couldn't stop at just the one wintry project! However I was running out of time for this post, so I had to find a super cute project that was also SUPER fast. Voila - sweet little mittens! They literally took an hour to make.

The pattern is a free one by Amy Sinibaldi available on her blog, Nana Company. I modified it slightly by adding fabric to the front side of the mittens, below the fold line - I backed the fabric with fusible web and appliqued it in place by machine, before constructing the mittens.

I hope you enjoyed my projects today! A big thank you to Minki for inviting me to be a part her blog tour - check out the other participants' blogs to see what they've made!
