Friday Create Along.

Well once again thanks to everyone who entered the giveaway and congrats again to Rachel for winning the pattern. Here’s what I made.

I used a Heidi Grace print I picked up on one of my US trips, I haven’t seen her fun fabric here in Canada yet. I choose a green print for the inside with little flowers because it had a circular pattern like the outside print.

I loved seeing everyone’s ideas for how they would use their creations, of course most of them had to do with projects. I’m going to put my business reading in mine. I have a bunch of craft and small business books I’ve been meaning to get through. I thought I’d get to them over the summer but so far no such luck!

If you would like to make your own BLISSFULpatterns has created a coupon code, SEWTARA15, for 15% off any of her patterns until the end of July. You can also like her on that Facebook thing.

I may have to give this bin a try. Not that I need one, I just like to sew new stuff! Plus the picture is adorable!

Ok, next up is this flex frame pouch tutorial. I have a few of these frames lying around and I’ve managed to pull one off by fumbling through the instructions in a Japanese craft book I have. But I’m going to go on a hexie binge and this is up first.

There’s lots of hexie tutorials out there, I learned how from Zakka Style, but just Google it if you haven’t made some before. Start making them now if you want to play along in the next few weeks.

  1. Your finished product is lovely, a stiffer interfacing would give it a bit more framework but I LOVE your fabric choices. What could be better than a fun, pretty AND functional project. by Shannon, BlissfulPatterns.

  2. Ooohh, I just read about your flex frame project! Love it, am going to try one for me too! Thanks so much for a great blog.

  3. Heidi Grace has some really great fabrics!
