HG Designer Anni Downs Blogs for US!

'My Favourite Things Sewing Basket & Accessories'. The basket has pockets and is stiffened in the top edge with rigilene (boning) to retain its shape. The pattern also includes an easy-to-make needle case, scissor keep & scissor decoration, and a pincushion, all of which can be hooked over the basket buttons for easy-to-find storage.

I thought a doorstop would be a perfect accessory in a girls bedroom and was quite easy to put together with just a small amount of applique. Again I just HAD to fussy cut the flower fabric - FUN! This pattern is called 'Welcome Home Doorstop'.

I made 'Laura's Quilt' to represent the whimsical life of girls (finished size 45 3/4"x53 1/2"). I again fussy-cut the image print and made them into ovals and finished off the quilt with a cute scallop around the edge. This pattern also includes 3 stitcheries if you would like to use these as an alternative to the image fabric.

The image fabric is perfect for fussy-cut hexagons, so I just HAD to make this 'Tea Party Table runner'. There are very detailed instructions to make both the table runner and the coasters and also included in the pattern are some stitchery designs for the hexagon centres if you prefer.
Best wishes, Anni
