cute pepper coasters

With so many rainy days and no ability to work on my outdoor dining room,
I had some time to do a little sewing.
I sewed a set of super cute bell pepper coasters!

A couple of Christmas ago, my mother in law gave Ms Pink Penguin book:"Patchwork, please"
I enjoyed reading and looking at all the cute stuff in it,
but never made anything...

Well, now it is official, I have made one of the project, using some of Ms Pink Penguin fabric,
I thought that was a nice touch!
Since I have cut into my fat quarters for my Mom's present,
I feel more able to play with that retro collection"lighthearted".

I added a few other fabric as I felt the green of the collection were wrong
for the bell pepper, I know it does not have to be literal,
but I have strong fillings for my bell pepper,
and I believe it agreed!

I recently purchased that red vintage picnic check, printed on the diagonal, super cute,
and I could not stop playing with it.
So I made an oven mitt with a pattern from Sew 4 Home using that gingham
and more of the lighthearted fabric.

I gave the bell pepper coasters and the oven mitt to my MIL,
she is an enabler, the best kind!

Happy sewing!

Here is my latest pillow, perfect for a late summer day, a sunflower with a modern twist from my choices of fabric: a mix of Halloween print...
