I have used crazy patchwork quilting to make the letter N
You will need a sewing machine, thread, scissors or rotary cutter, cutting mat, ruler, scraps of
fabric, and buttons
Cut your first piece of fabric into a random shape with straight sides
Join two pieces of fabric together and sew using a straight stitch, I used a 1cm seam allowance
Press seam open. Trim the fabric using scissors or rotary cutter to create a straight line
Gradually join different pieces of fabric together along the straight edges until you have the size piece you need.
As I was creating another letter I made sure mine was large enough to cut the shape out of. If you want to make a crazy patchwork quilt cut your fabric into the required block shape you are using.
Now you can do some crazy machine stitching. Choose a fancy stitch on your machine, even a zig zag pattern looks good. Sew down the seam line on the right side of the fabric.
I then placed the template letter on my fabric and pinned it down before cutting around the shape.
My crazy quilt letter shape!
I then placed mine on a plain piece of fabric and zig zag stitched all the way around.
Once the letter was attached I added some hand embroidery and buttons to finish off.
