I picked up a pile of random fabric on Freecycle before Christmas. Hidden amongst the piles of fleece and knit boy fabrics was this panel:
I remember seeing panels like this in sewing shops when I was a kid, but hadn’t seen one in ages (and funnily enough, my Mum gave me a similar panel for an apron for Christmas). All the instructions, including a few schematics are printed on the panel.
It was so nice to quickly cut out the pieces and stitch together – no fiddling around with paper patterns, no measuring or worrying about the fabric grain etc.
Before I knew it, I had a cute ladybird bag. This will make a cute pyjama bag on my daughter’s bed when she gets bigger.
I wonder what other fabric panel projects are out there… I may have to investigate!
Have you ever sewn anything from a panel like this?
