After I finished my mini quilt yesterday (I did it start to finish and it was fabulous) I got down to some prep work for some Fluff Project items.
The cutting. OH, the cutting!!
And it's not all done yet, either. I still have all the face pieces to cut and the scarves for the reindeer.
Yes, I'm doing ghosts and reindeer.
I cut all the body pieces for 4 reindeer and 16 ghosts. That's four of each size.
That is all that remains of the approximate 1.25 yards of white flannel I scored in the remnant bin. I'm so glad I could not only use it all but that the totals came out even.
It was as I was pressing all the fabric that I realized I had picked the HOTTEST day of the year (almost 90 degrees) to cut corduroy and flannel. Head, meet desk.
I still have a good bit of the corduroy (I got a yard of it for $2.50!) but I'm going to stitch up what I have cut already (20 items) then do another round of cutting. I'm hoping the ghosts will go quickly since the faces can be as simple as two eyes and a mouth. Of course, you know I'm going to makes at least two of the "dad" version that has a MUSTACHE!!!
I also have to stitch up some more swap items. I have two open swaps on my dash right now and a few more will be assigning partners soon.
