FO: another project bag

Standard

There was a free oddment of vinyl lying around in the staff room yesterday so I brought it home. It was only 7″ wide so I cut it up for a bag base.

The quilting cotton has been in the stash for ages and is one of my favourite fabrics. I have already made a few things with it.

I used a Microtex needle and a slightly longer stitch and it just glided through the vinyl like a dream, even when I sewed through 8 layers for the D ring tab.

Fantastic!

Day 1 of a three day weekend. I need to wash a couple of pieces of fabric so that I can sew two tops, so the bag was a slight diversion! Hoping to get started on a garment tomorrow.

What a weekend!

Standard

Three days off in a row, and it feels like a holiday!

Sewed practically all day Friday (and took a couple of daylight photos of the bag)…

Saturday, did the grocery shopping and the library followed by a nice toasting in the sun. Pulled out some coconut oil that wasn’t being eaten and put some on my skin, and threw a blanket and a towel on the grass. Later we went to the gym. Enjoyed some reading time with one of my library books.

Sunday we were out early and had a walk along the lake…

Stopped for a tea at our favourite tea shop. Home for lunch then a little more sunshine time on the back deck.

There was still time for some more sewing and I made a drawstring project bag which required a lot less thought than Friday’s project. A palate cleanser, as it were, before I tackle another Yoan tutorial.

Then dinner and more reading.

And now my weekend is almost over. I hope you enjoyed your weekend and that all is well with you.

Squeezing in sewing time

Standard

Often when I get home from a full day on my feet, having lifted myriad bolts of fabric and dealt with lots of people (can you say extroverted introvert?!) I am wiped and all I have the energy for is food, tea, Netflix and bed.

Other days, given the right motivation, I can actually get things done.

The barbecue display at work

One evening to make an apron and a second to make an oven mitt to add to the display.

The finished rope bowl

My hand-dyed yarn crocheted over cotton clothesline.

A new mask and earsaver

Just because I love the camper fabric so much!

And another WhitneySews bag from the same tutorial as the cat bag I showed you last time. How adorable is this fabric, with the yarn-bombed trees!

One day, I managed to have a complete sewing room blitz and now everything is tidier and better organized.

All that clear space waiting to be used!

I’m working tomorrow but then I have three days off. Ooh, what mischief can I get up to?!
