Good morning, Jamie (and everyone!). I didn't have an email to contact you about your question concerning My Happy Place wall hanging, so I hope you check back to see this post. =) At the end of this post, you can find a link to change your settings so you are no longer a no-reply blogger. =)
The pattern for the sewing machine template was a creation of Ellison Lane and can be found here. I did raw edge appliqué to put it on the fabric with a tight zig zag stitch.
For the letters, I purchased a paper pieced pattern called My Fist Alphabet by Diane Bohn on Craftsy. You could also to appliqué letters if you want. =)
The square in a square borders are also paper pieced. I did a Google search to find them and them sized them down to the size I wanted to use. In other words, I just messed around until it worked. I was flying by the seat of my pants. =) Math is not my forte, so it was a trial and error process.
Play around and make one that is pleasing to you! It's a fun and small project to get creative. Let your creative juices flow! I would love to see it when you are done. =)
This is a great time to remind everyone to check your setting to make sure you are NOT a no-reply blogger. Also, Google+ users, many times I cannot respond to your comments because there is no email in which to do so. Erin @Sew at Home Mummy has great information on how to fix both issues. =)
Have a happy Thursday!!
