As soon as it was up I got right to work hanging up my Gothic Windows blocks.
Of course all of the blocks are not up,because there were only 24 clips,and the last 2 sets of blocks have not arrived yet. However the ones that are hanging look so nice! I love the fact that they are out on display instead of in a stack in my WIP basket :)
Jolene called a month or two ago to tell me that a Tragedy had occurred to her! After I said What Happened??!! She explained that well maybe it wasn't a Real Tragedy,at least not in the true sense of the word. Anyway the big deal was that somehow she had lost the ear bud case I made her for Christmas,and could you please make me another one mom?
So the above photo was Saturdays sewing project,minus the two that will be sent to Jolene soon :) Figured I better send a back-up just in case another tragedy strikes ;) The rest are for sale in my shop.
A shot of the inside of the bag. There are 6 pockets,and I also included a tab where you can attach your keyring. All of the fabrics used were from my stash,because I am trying to use the fabric from it instead of buying more.
I am really happy with how this bag turned out! The pattern was straight forward and the instructions were easy to understand and follow. Did I really just say that about a pattern??!! Yep :) The prairie points are the corners that I cut off to make the bottom of the bag square! I didn't want to throw them away,so figured out a way to use them!
Here is a photo of the bag/pattern from the magazine Quilts and More,summer 2012 issue. It is called a Classic Carryall. This is one of,if not my Favorite magazine. They always have such cool projects to make,and to date,all the projects I have made from their patterns have been fun to sew/make!
Of course I did alter a few things here and there,but that is because I was using from my stash,so had to make a few minor adjustments accordingly.
Hope you were able to spend some time sewing this past weekend too :)
