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.
Now that I have stopped distracting myself with other things, I have made great progress on the knitting/crochet project bags for charity. I have decided to sell these for $24, with 75% of that going to CritterAid farm sanctuary in Summerland, BC. I have been posting pics of these to Facebook and one friend has already called Dibs on the What the Fox bag.
The quilt panel has 12 animals on it so once all 12 bags are made I’ll make a bit more effort to sell them, probably posting to Facebook Marketplace. I’d rather sell locally rather than pay postage to send them elsewhere.
The bags that I’ve made so far are similar – animal panel on the front, patterned quilt cotton on the back and for the casings, denim upcycled from old jeans for the base, cotton batting, and turquoise organic cotton for the lining. They measure about 10″ across and 10″ deep, and have a boxed bottom that adds a third dimension to fit more stuff! They also have a denim tab and keyring for attaching stitch markers or keys or whatever.
Five made so far, seven to go. I really hope I can (a) maintain my enthusiasm and complete all twelve and (b) sell them all.
