Cut and Snip

Little things can take the longest time, can’t they?  I hadn’t done any P&Q while I was away in our caravan for the latest trek around the country.  Time to get on with it.  So I was cutting and snipping away at various pieces of ultra suede and ended up with two little bags full of pieces.  I need to keep the “A” pieces separate from the “B” pieces so I don’t get muddled up.  What do you think it is?

According to Mr Google "Ultrasuede" is the trade name for a synthetic microfiber fabric invented in 1970 by Dr. Miyoshi Okamoto, a scientist working for Toray Industries. It is often described as an artificial substitute for suede leather. The fabric is multifunctional: it can be used in fashion, interior decorating, vehicle upholstery, and handcrafts too of course.

Hi Jenny
Where do you purchase your ultra-suede? I hear it is great for teeny tiny appliqué.

Is it roosters, face to face??I'll copy the pattern onto paper and post this week. Cheers, Jean.

Hi Helen
My ultrasuede came in a kit I purchased from overseas. Not sure where you would get it here in NZ. Perhaps you could "google"?

Hi Nancy
You are very close - but will just have to wait and see till I've finished!
