Farmer's Wife Scraps

A little break from Farmer's Wifing.

A small box was being discarded which was just the right size to be baby mouse's bed. So I reached under my sewing table into the mountain of scraps and instantly found some random 1.5" blocks. There is so much down there, I could probably make a king size version. In the end, each block is 1", so 5 x 7". Mousey also got a pillow and a sheet. He's all set.

I love the binding. I was a bit sad that I didn't have any more pink, but the blue seems to be just as nice.

My favourite bit is the fussy cut cat

The backing is some really old seersucker which I bought from Fabrics Galore years a go. It's got a lovely feel to it. It would make lovely pyjama bottoms or pillow cases, but alas, I only have a few strips left. Just enough for this project! I knew keeping scraps wasn't a hoarding problem. They are useful! I think all my stripes marry together beautifully.
