I made some finger puppets up from an embroidery file from Embroidery Library. Bit of fun, passed an hour or two.

I do a mix. Occasional metres of something which I find pretty/interesting, and also lots of individual fat 1/4s.  It’s a nice way to buy pretties and basics, one or two at a time, so you don’t feel like you’re breaking the bank.

Ok. My notes as follows-

Mixing 3” measurements, which are also 2 7/8” measurements, introduces a little layer of confusion. Choose one and be consistent. You did explain the two measurements but it meant I was never 100% sure on this.

Half sq triangles -

Take your four 3” lt squares
And one 3” bright sq …… this square doesn’t exist

Pair with four background 3” sq
And one light 3” sq … this square doesn’t exist


These along with your 2 1/2” light sq (doesn’t exist)

No mention of medium block use anywhere - the photos are very useful for sorting things.

Not trying to be picky, @Iminei , I very much appreciate all the work you put into these :* THANKYOU.

Feel free to correct my corrections. It is very late and very 🥵 hot.

My machines are end on to the windows. This is good for light ( 😁 ). But, on days like today I have to close the curtains as the sun is in my eyes. It’s also good as it overlooks the back garden and I can spy on oversee things happening out there.

I think the instructions on this are a bit off, but I’m too hot and bothered to edit them. Maybe in a day or two when it cools down.
Or maybe they’re fine and my brain has just melted.

Anyway …

It’s not for Project Linus, no.

It’s for my daughter.

I’m thinking it might need more tying designs. I’ve done all the junctions, so should be sufficient, but I’ve got a feeling I might need something small and central on all the squares as well.

I don’t want to, but I also don’t want it falling apart.

Does it happen where you “ Pivoting at the end of the last of the Four pieces and sewing back along the other side of the line”

I didn’t do that tiny pivoting stitch line. I ended up the first line, snapped thread, then sewed the next line. I didn’t have any corners playing with me.
