Finished my Melinda Zipper Pouch.
I don’t know if I’m getting faster at hexies or they’re just starting to grow on me, but they look pretty fun in a finished project and I’m liking this pouch a lot.
I even got fancy and placed those little kitties just so. The unique way to attach a label to this pouch was also kinda nifty.
Next up is this quick little phone cozy from Michelle Patterns. I need a quick project as back to school looms this week, *sigh*. This pattern is only from the pieces, but if you’ve used her patterns before you can figure it out pretty easily. I’ll also tip you off when I write my post on Friday.
I’ve written about I Think Sew before, and I plan to again, but I just wanted to point out that not only do they have really great patterns they also give many away for free. Right now there’s a pile of them just free for the taking. Like these pouches!
And this tote! Oh my weakness for totes . . .
The ones you can purchase are also really reasonably priced.
I plan on making this next for my Create Along, provided I can muscle up enough hexies that is!
Nothing like letting yourself down on deadlines you set all by your lonesome eh?
This was done last Friday but I just didn’t get to the whole photographing and posting bit. So here it is now. I’ll just forge ahead and share and then Friday I’ll announce my new creation.
I went with the lovely yellow & grey combo on this one. I love how it turned out.
Pattern is from here fabric is by Joel Dewberry, it’s Majestic Oak in Sunglow. Find it on Etsy.
Woohoo, I’m finally done the messenger bag!! Well . . . one of them at least!
I was zipping along all fine and good when I realised I may have done thing wrong with Wesley’s bag. So I laid it aside and started in on Nate’s to discover where I’d messed up. I found out, finished Nate’s, spent some quality time with Mr Stitchripper and Wesley’s bag and then I sort of wandered off to do something fun. Yeah I’m like that.
I’ll get Wesley’s done this weekend, Nate loves his. I used the same Japanese fabric I used when I made his little back pack so he likes it since it’s a bag “like Mommy and Daddy’s” but still like the little backpack he really likes.
I suppose I’ll get a double action shot too.
Next up is this Flores Clutch from I Think Sew. I’ve wanted to make it for a while and have owned the pattern for ages so I think I’ll set to it now! Take a peek around the shop, there’s some lovely PDF patterns there and they’re really affordable and delivered by email!
It’s a busy last week of school, lots of celebrations, parties and cleaning up but I’ll sneak in some sewing time.
