It feels good to make something from my Fabric Stash. Fabric that has been sitting for years waiting for its owner to come up with a design and actually cut into it. Snip. Cut.
You want to hear something funny. I bought this Mickey fabric off eBay YEARS ago and didn’t notice the seller was out of the country (not USA) when I clicked on To Buy. It took over a month for it to arrive and by then I had forgotten all about why I had wanted it in the first place!!
I used some of it to make simple purses for little girls. But still had a lot left. It is not the best quality fabric. The thread separated in some spots. I snipped off the pulled away threads.
So that I could still use it and not have to do a lot of fussy cutting around the flawed areas, I added a “patch” here and there.
Thus, Mickey: Love Patches was born.
I liked it and said, what the heck!! Let’s add more!! So I added mustard yellow squares plus the ones that look like the Target ads. The black and white circles.
Patches, all except the black/white circles, have been zig zagged. Will keep fraying to a minimum.
Quilting was done with wavy lines throughout.
I love how the back turned out with the zig-zagging detail.
Mini quilt can be used as a doll quilt, a playmat. Even a table runner. Would be great as a wall hanging in a child’s room. A child who loves Mickey.
All cotton fabric, cotton batting. It measures 20″ by 24″.
