I have a new WiP under way. But it’s a quick project – mainly due to a short deadline. Another birthday party this weekend (provided sick kidlet is on the mend!) so I think another personalised bag is in order.
I have gotten this far with the bag.
Don’t be too impressed. That’s a test block for a as yet unreleased pattern of mine (opinions welcome!). I’m reusing, reducing, recycling (or whatever it is that Bob the Builder is brainwashing the current generation with) and making this block the feature of a little tote bag. Thankfully the birthday girl’s name only has 5 letters so I can embroider her name onto the bunting flags. Yep. I’ll get right onto that. Or maybe in the blank section of the block might work better. Decisions decisions.
I have also picked out the fabric for the rest of the bag. I used a very scientific, methodical way of doing that. Opened the stash cupboard, looked in the pink tub, and found this bit of pretty sitting on top. It works. I think.
So that’s on my agenda in the next day or two. I’m also finishing up the last couple of blocks for Round and Round.
Recycled pictures from last week. Yep I’m all about recycling, Bob.
Can I just tell you those things are a life saver when you have lots of rows to put together? Jane put little arrows on them so when you are ironing, you know which way to iron your seams so they nest together beautifully. Genius, right?
So that’s me. WiPing away. And talking about giveaways (we were, weren’t we?!), make sure you pop by my Girl Friday Sews blog hop post for a chance at a $25 gift certificate to Pink Chalk Fabrics thanks to Heidi @ Fabric Mutt! Swing by and check out the rest of the awesome blog hop while you’re at it!
If anyone needs me, I’ll be napping. Or at least thinking about napping.
