Sew TOGETHER Bag

File 2018-01-30, 7 39 00 PM“Sew TOGETHER Bag” is this awesome bag  from “Sew Demented” that anyone can sew up in a day for first time using the pattern…Well it took me 5 hours for this one. Really had to think what it is telling me to do next in the pattern…and not rush into sewing sections together.File 2018-01-30, 7 38 42 PM

 

 

So I took my time and looked everything over twice before I cut or sewn the sections together..

and It worked out pretty amazing I think…This bag is perfect for Knitting or sewing notions. I’ll make a view more for sure…just need more zippers and some fabric…but guess what? SMILES……I am working Friday and Saturday so I have that alllll……right in front of me alllll day…smiles.  Ok If you like I can show you too where we have the pattern and help you with selections for the fabric ….looking forward to see you then. Really love this Sew together bag…..

Love

Modern Placemats

File 2018-01-18, 3 06 20 PMLove the more modern style in quilting.

So it is not surprising that I love this look in  placemats.

I had worked up a Table Runner two weeks ago called “River Stones” and had some sewn fabric section left from this Table runner.

The pattern indicating it would be for a Runner and a pillow. Beautiful, but I really did not need another pillow in my home.

 

 

 

So you can see I added some more strips to the already sewn pieces and divided the length into two sections that now are the perfect size for two placemats. If I would make this pattern for placemats only, I would make the two section ONE!File 2018-01-18, 3 05 58 PM

…but for now I am ok as is as sections where sewn already and I had only very little fabric left.

Really love this look, very modern and fun.

And as You can see I have added my next project on the knitting needles too…SOCKS!

I am working them with new needles…more in my next post…..see you soon again :-)
