Is It cool To Sew....
I think I may have some Jumping beans in my fingers, my friends think I have gone a little loop la lou what with all my sewing. They think the girl they know and love has jumped ship and a lovely, dear little old lady has come back in her place. Am I no longer the cool dude :)
What do your friends think of your crafting, maybe its a phase, maybe I am going through an early change but I seem to have to be making something, even if it is only a little something every day.
Here is a little cushion cover I made.
A cover I made for a 65cms by 65cms Ikea floor cushion. I would like to put some buttons on it, though don't know if I am up for doing button holes :)
Then a little lined Tote Bag using a lovely Tutorial and the beautiful fabric Dolly Dollop wrapped my Mother's Day goodies in. Here they are looking pretty.
A beautiful and special Enid Blyton book, pretty handwritten card and tag, something special from her wedding and some of the gorgeous fabric.
A lovely handmade birdie for Master. Poppins.
And a lovely handmade birdie for Miss. Poppins, thank you Claire they are beautiful :)
I shall keep you waiting to see what goodies I got from A Thrifty Mrs :)
So here is the little Tote Bag I made
Though I did have my pocket on the wrong side :)
Ohooo and then a little 1 hour bag using a fantastic Tutorial Sew Hot Mitmot used to make her beautiful ones. I used LA Bibi for the main bag and pocket, and an Ikea Gingham for the lining.
Here is my pocket sewn onto the lining, two hems.
Sewing in the wadding.
The bag ready to go into the lining.
