Every Inchie Monday


I have joined Every Inchie Monday in creating an inchie every week for a year. An inchie is what it sounds like, a one inch square that is embellished and in this challenge around a weekly theme. This weeks theme is caring and here is my first inchie (I missed the first two weeks, but 50 inchies seems o.k. to me! Go to Every Inchie Monday to see more or join in yourself.
My inchie was originally going to have winter colors. For the last 5 days we have had an inch of snow each day and today expecting 3 to 5 inches so that seemed appropriate. I opened my box of felt and on top were beautiful bright colors and I realized how much I needed to see something other than white, silver and gray. So purple, lime green and blue with pink metallic stitching was for me! Enjoy!

I love your little inchie. But I don't know how you sewed it on the machine, it being so tiny.
