So as we are approaching the end of February, I thought I would share a few pictures of some of the retro cookie jars that have been popping up in the BoM linky party. You can still link yours up for a chance to win some of my patterns too!
Also this post is to remind you to download the pattern from my shop in the next few days while it’s still free – it will become a paid pattern on the 1st March (Aussie time – because well, I’m Aussie.) when the new pattern is released. I got complaints about it last month because people hadn’t downloaded the pattern in the previous 30 days it was available free. I do my best guys but it’s easier for me to remember to change things around when I’m listing the new pattern and changing the old pattern to paid at the same time.
Now onto the pretty pictures.
Lovely bright citrus-y colours from Sandy!
Red and aqua by Bea!
Love the SunPrint background here by Tiffany!
You still have some time to link up your block over here. Then check back on Saturday for the third block of the BoM!
I’ve had a few questions about how to put the word “cookies” onto your cookie jar. I’m not actually making this BoM this year (too much going on) but if I were doing it, I would probably draw it on with a fabric marker. The other options are applique, hand embroidery or using your sewing machine to stitch it on. As for fonts, have a play around in Paint or PicMonkey and try writing out the word “Cookies” in different font styles and see which one you like. Print it off and you can use that for your template for your block perhaps. That’s all I’ve got as a suggestion. I’m not so great on the embellishment part- my forte is the block designing! :)
I’m enjoying seeing the different fabric choices and the way people are making the blocks their own. I hope that you are enjoying making them! Happy sewing, retro friends!
