Description

Hubby has been making cutting boards, and asked me to make a cover to protect and present with them. I have been having fun using up vintage canvas, Marimekko reprints and scraps from my stash to make all sorts of bags. I went from the simplest to a very elaborate crazy quilt one for hubby’s grandmother who has Alzheimers, the sort of fabrics to evoke memories…

Using my serger I did decorative overlock on non-skid material. Testing proved a smaller than board size works best.
Machines used:
Huskylock 1001L
Brother SE270D
Singer 491

Material Notes

Vintage Marimekko reprints
Vintage Canvas and heavyweight cotton denim
Polished Cotton Home Decorator Weights
Carole Fabrics and upholstery and drapery weight samples
Patchwork using quilting cottons
