Patchwork was one craft I always grew up around. My mam use to do it on and off for years but never really seemed to every finish anything major with it. I think that's one of the downsides to this craft - it can take a lot of time but designing, cutting and sewing before you start to make an indent in your design. I've made the odd couple of cushion covers before but only using the hexagonal shaped patches which are pretty easy to cut, make and sew together so I wanted to try and make something patchwork based to add to my hoop wall. The beauty of patchwork is that you can pretty much use any fabric you come across - mine being from the discount aisle of JoAnns, the fabric bags sheets come in to an old pair of jeans. Its recycling or maybe even up-cycling - in a crafty, pretty way.
Recently I've been having a pipe dream of making something similar and opening a shop on Etsy for things like the above and perhaps some crochet work. Sadly I don't know if my craftsmanship is up to it because they are obviously handmade and or if people would want to buy them. What do you think?
