Craft Along - Week 1

Hi Everyone,

As I mention last time, the Craft Getaway that I had planned for last weekend didn't go ahead so I've decided to share one of the projects here in the form of a step by step craft along. I suppose it's like a tutorial run over a few weeks but you don't know what you're making. Every Friday for the next few weeks I will post the instructions for each step to make the mystery project. I know the whole mystery thing might be a bit daunting but I promise you will end up with something lovely at the end. It is a small project and you might have most of the materials already. I just went through my stash and used some leftovers from other projects.
I think this will be fun don't you?
As this is the first time I have done anything like this please feel free to contact me if you think something doesn't seem right or isn't clear.
Here is what you will need.
Edit: On the printable list it should be an embroidery thread that matches the 3" square.

Mystery Project Craft Along
7 x 2”x19” strips – coordinating fabrics
2 x 3⅝”squares – light colour
4 x 3⅛” squares crosscut into 8 triangles – dark colour
2 x 3” squares – medium or dark colour
(NB. All the above fabrics should coordinate, see example below)
1 x 11”x20” wadding
1 x 11”x20” homespun/calico
1 x 11”x19” fabric – anything you like
1 x 14”zipper
1 x 3”x6” fusible webbing
Embroidery thread to match your 3" squares
Sewing thread
Sewing machine
Pins & a needle
Rotary cutter & mat (not essential all the fabrics could be cut with scissors)

Below is an example of the fabrics I chose but you can choose your favourite fabrics.
I do have a few kits that I made up in preparation for the Craft Getaway so if you would like to purchase one of them, just email me via the "Contact Me" in the right sidebar. Also I am giving away a kit to one lucky reader who leaves a comment on my previous post HERE by this Tuesday (October 30th).
Looking forward to crafting with you next Friday.

Thanks for popping by and until next time 

I would love your feedback.
