While my pillow making workshop was fresh in my mind I decided to make another one.
I bought this material some time ago thinking it would make a nice cushion, it was only an off cut, but it turned out to be just the right size for the pattern from the workshop, and, I remembered how it was all done!
This was my first sewing project a few weeks ago. I wanted a bag for my knitting and after trawling through you tube for tutorials I came across one I thought I would be able to follow.
It came out alright for a first attempt. It' wouldn't win any prizes in a show, I did make a mistake on the bottom, but you can't really notice it when it's 'sat' with the yarn in, and it's for me, so it's ok :-)
I used Vonna's cross stitch project bag tutorial for the next two.
This is the first one I made last week
And this one, a little bigger, I made this afternoon.
This one has just a plain lining
I'm really happy with how these turned out, the tutorial was really clear and easy to follow.
I'm never going to be a sewist but I have enjoyed making these and will definitely make some more pillows but I think that's about the limit of my sewing ability, lol.
Over size pom pom alert!
Joanne and Gavin came around on Friday with Bonnie, Jo had ordered her this hat, it is still too warm for it but and we just had to try it on :-)
(The little blanket is the corner to corner garter stitch one I was working on a few weeks ago)
Today was this little one's due date, and she is already 15 days old!
Time fly's too quickly!!
I hope you all have a lovely week, and enjoy the Bank Holiday sunshine :-)
