Squares with tails













Seeing this ad, I wondered how it could be done:
four patches, knotted in the middle...













So I tried, cutting squares with tails...
Never figured it out properly like in the photo,
but came up with these quite entertaining little
four-patches...

Interessant, da bekomme ich auch Lust, das nachzuknoten (auch wenn bei mir dann wieder eine Tasche daraus würde). Vielleicht sind das auch nur zwei Teile, verschlungen, nicht veknotet. Hmmm...

Muscular, like a strong heart.

What if you stitched the edges that aren't tails, and then put them through the wash - either before or after attaching them to each other?

That´s what attracted me in the bag I guess, that muscularity.. Would be interesting to explore the difference doing it with small squares of very light fabrics (which would fray a lot when washed) + big squares of strong fabric, for the muscular touch (perhaps even leather...)

Ohhhhh, muscular... leather.. Hummmm...Yes...well, I would think it would be quite lovely.

Bet you had fun with this one! This would be fun to try with denim.

I am really loving that last photo with the reddish color peeking through. How clever...I always enjoy seeing where the inspiration comes from. Very nice. : )

Thanks... - actually, I often find cheap fashion magazines, stupid as they are, a source for inspiration - not in what they propagate, but in little details here + there...

They make me smile! They really take on personalities of their own.

ok, now that we are going here... how about if the squares have 4 tails, one on each corner and you just tie the patches together... i might try that if you don't ...ha!

Wow, this is beautiful!

I like what you've done. Just looking at the ad and trying to work out how they did it made my head hurt!

Thank you...! Squares, wagging their tails - first 1, then 2... - please go ahead, Jude, with the 4tailed ones, I´d (+ not only me, I guess...) love to see what you do with them - the cutting will be more tricky then with 1 tail, though (+ the cutting, to tell you the truth, is the part of the whole business I like the least...)
