It's been a little slow going on the sewing front so far this year, but I musn't complain. I did manage to make my first ever softie, and then this past week managed another couple of projects.
I finally finished sewing a yoga bag for a friend. She's asked for it for a while now, but I was too busy procrastinating until recently. You know how it is, eheheh. I was very happy when she said she wanted pink, because I have plenty of pinks in my stash. And she also wanted to have the bag monogrammed with her name on it. That meant some applique, and more procrastinating ehee.
But here it is at long last, in it's finished form:
And a close up of the applique flower:
I can't wait to give it to her :-)
Then once I got sewing I just had to make something else, so I made a little shopping bag for myself.
Whoops! Someone's foot is in the frame, hehee.
It's foldable (the bag, not the foot), with a tie, so when I'm not using it I can bundle it up and keep it in my handbag. I feel all environmentally friendly now :)
And this is what I will be up to this week:
This is what happens when you don't bother to baste your quilts properly. I was so keen to start quilting something that I rushed the basting. And now I have puckers galore. Yuck.
So as you can imagine, I'll be pretty busy with yards of unpicking. Until the next time, happy sewing!
