Joy's Tissue covers.


On the night of the dinner we had almost 100 of these little tissue covers dotted around on the tables.   They had all been made by Joy H and sent to me to hand out at the dinner.  So many people commented on them and said they were curious as to how they were made that I asked Joy to do a tutorial for us.  

Here you go....


Requirements
2 x 7.5" squares in contrasting fabrics
2 co-coordinating buttons


Place the fabrics right side together, stitch around the edge using a 1/4" seam and leaving a gap in one edge for turning.


Clip corners, turn press and top stitch edged enclosing turning gap.


Fold square into a triangle.



Measure down each side of the triangle 2"


Stitch the two side together with a small over stitch in co-coordinating thread.

  

 Refold with the slit centred.


Attach buttons


Insert tissues and close the ends




Hope this makes sense. It does to me but then I have already made one or two of them.

Cheers Joy

Aussie Hero Quilts Request List.... 12 November 2018


Hi all

For those who attended the Annual Thank You Dinner Weekend….

Please, please, please read this preamble each week as the info does change. I am receiving a lot of questions from people who have not read this info so you would make it easier for me too if you took a few minutes to read it.


The post by date for ALL items on this list is 17 December please.  

NOTE- any requests on this list would be great for display at the dinner if you are coming…

PLEASE note the date and let me know if you have any problems getting your quilt/LB away on time. In fact, if you are going to be late posting it please let me know BEFORE you post it.  Also, if this time frame is too tight for you, there are options, just email me to discuss.

 PLEASE, PLEASE, PLEASE copy the ENTIRE line if you wish to nominate for a quilt or laundry bag. 
For example….
Marvel Theme. Ironman     M       LB      1

This is really important to make sure that neither you nor I copy the wrong number which could lead to me giving you the wrong details for specific request.  If you find it hard to copy and paste please copy the line out as follows…  

The first column is the theme or preferences requested.
The second column indicated the gender of the recipient.
The third column is as follows.

B=both quilt and laundry bag (feel free to nominate to JUST do the laundry bag if you wish)
Q= just a quilt
LB = just a laundry bag
F= female
M= male

The last column with the number is a simple registration number for me to use… it is only relevant for this week only and will change if the request is still on the list next week. Once you have received the recipient’s details you will need to use those to refer to the recipient from then on if need be.

If there is more than one request on this list that you would be happy to do I suggest that you send me a list of requests and tell me how many you want to be allocated…. ie one of the following please….  There are always a few requests that everyone wants to do (and I can never pick them) so if the first one you ask for is taken then I can allocate another from your list if I have a list.
  
If you don’t understand what people are asking for or where to get some of the bits and pieces then please ask me but the following might also be helpful.

Australian National Flag - you can buy panels at Spotlight – ask for them if you can’t find them.
Afghanistan flag – I can send you one.
Rising Sun, RAAF Crest, Navy Crest, Coat of Arms, RAEME and other badges – ask me about them, I can often send you some to include if your request needs them.
If they want some text and it is too much for you to applique I may be able to get it embroidered and sent to you to be sewn on the quilt or sewn into it.  Just let me know what words you want, what colour fabric and what colour thread… keep it simple please.   Also include your address in the email to save me time please.
I can help you with football colours and logos of teams etc. Just ask me. Most of the logos are simple or you can just add team names if you want to … team colours are enough also.
Please think about what the request involves before you take it on. Google, ask questions, email me, make sure you can complete it to your satisfaction before you commit to it if possible please.

Please let me know if you have any other questions.

Cheers
