The Hottie

Finally, I have finished my hottie for the challenge! Unfortunately it didn't turn out quite as I had envisaged, it seems my sewing machine wasn't really all that happy with being neglected for many months and decided she did not want to co-operate with me. She ran along at a snails pace, but we got there in the end with Plan B. Looks like it's time for a service.

So here is my hottie. Crazy patched chenille for the front, vintage quilt for the back. And if no one looks at the wonky seams on the inside, all will be well!

I knew I wanted to incorporate this red and pink chenille flower, in honour of our gorgeous host for the hottie challenge, CurlyPops. Hope you like it Cam!

It's gorgeous Selina!
Why didn't I guess that you could make a super duper chenille Hottie?
PS - I do love that red and pink flower (of course)

oh Selina, it's adorable. My machine played up too.. a very neglected sewing machine that is telling me it needs more LTC. My hottie was not so 'hot' on the seams either, but now the said machine has DIED. LOOK OUT, I'll go buy a new one and chuck you out Miss Janome if you don't behave!!!!!!

Your hottie looks so snuggly and cuddly and the flower is perfectly Cam... and all with a dodgy machine - I love it. Well done.

Packrat said...

It's just darling. There is something about chenille... :)

Isn't it frustrating when your machine acts up?

Your use of chenille is amszing. I love this hottie, it is so different from anything that I have seen.

I really love it. I think it's just gorgeous with the chenille front and vintage back. Great job!

I absolutely love your cover. So much better than the old pillowcase I use.
