I’m doing nothing much more than sharing finished projects at the moment… so sorry! Because I have yet another bout of the dreaded toothache (how I wish I could go back to the 70s and tell myself to clean my teeth properly and lay off the boiled sweets… 😦 ) I have been spending time when I have the energy for working on finishing commissions rather than thinking up interest blog posts… Here’s what I got finished off today:
A cute pair of booties:
I would make so many more of these if the final seam (sewing round edge of the sole – with all the bulk of the shoe to work round) wasn’t so flipping tricky! I have a couple of pairs that have been waiting for their final seam since before Christmas now..!
A crochet hook wrap – outside :
I’m rather pleased with the binding on the fastening section! And the inside:
And finally, yet ANOTHER zippy pouch:
I’ve just realised that I can enter the Seamstar Valentine’s Day competition on Flickr with this one, because the stripy linen and the cute bird and trees (both from Circa 60 Beach Mod by Monaluna), come from the Seamstar shop. There’s a brilliant prize if you have been using Seamstar fabrics recently, it’s worth checking out.
I’m wondering about entering the Modern Mini Quilt Challenge… I have never made a mini quilt, but there’s a fabulous prize, so it’s very tempting to have a go… Is anyone else being brave enough to have a go?
I promise to get back to you over the weekend with something more exciting than show and tell posts!
