EDITOR'S LETTER

Welcome Editor’s Pick

Dawn Lewis’s crocheted microphone is the perfect quick gift for a karaoke kid.

I’m not going to lie, I love the winter. I itch for crisp mornings and bright winter sunshine during the sweltering Australian summers and when the white stuff starts to fall in the Snowy Mountains, I immediately start preparing for a long-awaited snowboarding trip. But I have to admit, three months of the cold is all I need. I’ve survived the obligatory flu, filled my hot-water bottle nearly 100 times and spent 12 weeks leaving for, and arriving home from, work in the dark, which is more than enough. So now I’m itching for spring, and that’s reflected in these pages. Our annual Fetes and Fairs issue is packed with fun projects that are quick to make and great to sell at market stalls as well as plenty of bright floral designs that are perfect for springtime. The magic of this season is reflected in Kirsten Edwards’ magical Bottom of the Garden on page 48. The quilt is made with AP&Q’s sweet new range called Harlequin, available from patchworkandcraft.com.au

Oriental BEAUTY While Sharlene Jones-Martin’s doll looks delicate, she’s strong enough to withstand little hands. Make her as a treasured gift, or simply to showcase your favourite Japanese prints.

Strong craft glue Chopstick or turning tool Polyester stuffing Matching sewing threads Template plastic Chalk marker (optional) Scissors: fabric and craft Pencil Standard ruler Rotary cutter, ruler and mat Lightbox (optional) Iron and ironing-board Sewing machine General sewing supplies

Note: It is recommended fabrics be 100 per cent cotton, pre-washed and well ironed. Requirements are based on fabric 112cm (44in) wide. This doll is constructed using the trace, stitch and cut method. Templates are finished size and require a ¼in seam allowance to be added when cutting the fabrics. Read the instructions thoroughly before you begin.

From the red homespun, cut: – two 8in squares for the body and the skirt – two 6½in x 2 ¼in rectangles for the kimono sleeves.

From the Japanese floral print, cut: – two 20in x 3½in rectangles for the kimono – two 6½in x 2 ¼in rectangles for the kimono sleeves – two 2 ¼in x 9½in strips for the Obi belt. PREPARATION Trace the pattern pieces for the body, arms and legs, including all markings, from the pattern sheet onto template plastic with a pencil, and cut them out neatly on the lines. ARMS AND LEGS Fold the 20in x 10in pale lemon homespun rectangle in half with right sides together and press it well. Trace two arms and two legs onto the folded rectangle using the prepared templates and a pencil.

1

Pin the two layers together around each traced shape and stitch on the lines with a short stitch length, leaving the marked opening for turning. Trim a scant ¼in seam allowance beyond each shape and snip the curves.

2

Turn through each arm and leg, and smooth out the curves by running a turning tool along the stitched edges. Then press them well and set them aside.

PINK BROOCH • 15cm (6in) square of pink felt • DMC Stranded Embroidery Cotton: 1 skein each of light beaver grey (648), baby pink (818) • DMC Light Effects Thread: 1 skein of silver (E168) • 10mm (3/8in) round shank button: 1 pearlescent • 2mm (1/16in) round pearl beads: 8 pink • 3cm (1¼in) metal brooch back • 15cm (6in) square of fusible polymesh (optional) • 12cm (4¾in) diameter embroidery hoop (optional) GENERAL • Baking paper • Pencil and sticky tape • Small sharp scissors • General sewing supplies

Note Taetia used a square of fusible polymesh, which is trimmed away when the embroidery is almost finished, and a hoop. However, these can be embroidered whilst held in your hand.

Use clear sticky tape to stick the pattern pieces onto the felt. Cut around the shapes with small scissors, such as embroidery scissors, as it is easier to cut tiny shapes with a tight turning circle. Peel the sticky tape off the felt. The felt isn’t damaged by the tape, plus the pattern is held in place while you cut and can be used again.
