How to turn Sunbonnet Sue into a duck.
(this is not a ‘true’ tutorial so we will skip some of the steps and also some of the words used to complete this sewing project! hahaha)
I started with this. I drew the design in parts and cut them out of old timey fabric, then assembled them. (I made 2 designs)
Then I had the bright idea to use some of the old cutter quilt for the back.
I wanted it to be an old quilted pillow like a child would have taken to church in olden times.
But when I finished (well, I still haven’t sewed up the bottom where the feet were supposed to go), I ended up with a ‘horse of a different color’…otherwise known as a DUCK!
It may sound funny to you but it was no
laughing quacking matter.
