fabric collage

Posted by on June 30, 2009 in stitch | 13 comments

I'm getting ready to go visit family on Thursday, so this will be quick. I decided that my laptop needed a sleeve for my travels, so I can stick it in my new little rolling carry-on, rather than lugging it around in the abnormally heavy laptop case that I usually use. I was inspired by one of my favorite Japanese Patchwork books to do a little collage-y kind of thing on linen.


I added a layer of batting and quilted it, now I just have to fold it in half and sew it up. Of course I'll share when it's all done. I picked some flowers this morning, and the lavender was positively buzzing with bees!

I also finished up the little kimono for the baby that arrived today! That story is for my sister to share, and I hope to see pictures soon.



  1. Hey lucy, love your blog, the images and content very appealing and full of charm

  2. What a darling kimono and little booties. Laptop sleeve looks great. Next you will need a matching tote to put it in! xo, suzy

  5. I have never seen stichwork like you’ve done on your laptop cover. I really like it! You have such lovely taste.
    I had a lady come by from Craig’s list to pick up some plants and she talked about how having bees this year
    really improved her garden. Have you noticed a difference yet?

  6. Lavender is like the hottest restaurant in town. Once every bee figures it out, that is!
    Pretty kimono! I want one that’s my size.

  7. Ooo I love that kimono! And the laptop case is darling, too.
    Have fun with your new niece! Fun!!!

  8. Little B can’t wait to try on the new additions to her wardrobe:-) We’re excited to see you tomorrow!
