For a Sunday morning I've been busy! Despite losing an hour of sleep/crafting time because of daylight savings, I have managed to sew my third test sample [yay!!] for the sample swap I'm participating in at the Fat Quarterly retreat in London in June.
I've made a 'thing'. I'm not sure what to call it so perhaps it will be called a 'Mini drawstring pouch'.
|Here it is all closed/scrunched up. Finally - an item photographed in daylight!|
|Here it is opened up. I could put something small inside and close it up and use as a gift bag.|
|Here it is opened up and turned upside down so you can see what it looks like before scrunching. |
I bought the rock with the dragonfly at the Country Living Spring Fair on Thursday - so awesome!
If I decide to make four of these little things, I will need to go buy loads of ribbon as I do not have enough long bits in the house, or the right colours to suit the fabric I would make these in. I do have a couple more tests/ideas to sew up THEN I will make a decision which I will reproduce into four yummy things to give to total strangers. You can see test sample #1 here (folded flap button-closure bag) and test sample #2 here (shaggy denim potholders). I wonder what the other 30 people will be sewing? Lucky we are in groups of 5 so we only have to swap 4 items, otherwise I'd really be in a tizzy!
So that is that. Better go finish changing all the clocks otherwise I will be all confused at what time it REALLY is! Happy SUNNY Sunday :)
