OMG September Finish

Setting an early deadline helped me stop what I was doing which wasn't working out the way I wanted (quilted ottoman cover) and focus on making the cover for my Gypsy Sit-Upon before tomorrow's guild's workshop.

For the September One Month Goal (OMG) my entry was #22Elm Street Quilts One Monthly Goal September Linkup.

You can read about the event and the rules on the main event page.

I successfully took 1-yard of fabric and turned it into a nice cover with handle. The fabric edge was  scalloped before a wash, dry, & press. Then the 4 pieces were cut:
Handle & Cover Front

Cover Back Halves
Since I had some comp time from working last weekend, I was able to take a Friday afternoon off and after a great chiropractic appointment and making a lovely lunch (Black Bean & Avocado bowl) I finished cutting the pieces and assembled the cover. The best hint was from a Facebook sewing group for my machine which showed me how to use the Button Shank Plate to help the foot deal with thin/thick layer transition. It was incredibly helpful:
Button Shank Plate coming off the thick layers
This worked out well to create the cover:

And it wasn't too bad to stuff after all I can stuff the dog's bed cozy cave stuffing into it's cover after washing. Here's the finished product:
I'm so pleased to have finished something since there is a lot on my mind to finish this month. What are you working on?
