Friday afternoon was spent doing more organising of my fabric & craft organising. I was lucky enough to win some vouchers for Bunnings a few months back, and earlier in the week I went to purchase a large cupboard to help me store and organise my sewing accoutrements. It's been fun going through my things, but also frustrating - as much as I have, there is so much I feel like I need to get it just right *wink* ... I still have quite a bit to go through and organise, so I'll show pics once I've got it done :)
Late Friday evening I got started on my sewing project for the evening. The "Buttercup Bag", designed by Made-by-Rae designs.
We had a birthday party to go to on Saturday for one of the little girls in Miss 5's class and so we went to Spotlight and these were the fabrics & buttons she chose. Such a good combination if I do say so myself *grin*. We've also picked out some fabrics for a bag for her - another fabulous combination I'll show later in the week once it's been put together.
I totally recommend this pattern for anyone interested in making themselves, or someone else, a nice little bag. It was easy to follow, the pattern pieces were simple, and I can totally see myself making quite a few more of these - both for myself and as gifts for others.
Once again, it was wonderful knowing there were other like-minded sewers around the country and globe, all sewing 'together'! And thankyou to Cheryll for once again hosting this fabulous monthly get-together!! I may not report in every month/fortnight/week, but I do enjoy knowing there are others out there just as enamoured with needle and thread as I am!!
Enjoy a quilty kinda week!! xx
