It’s been some time but…

22 May

Life got so busy of late, there has been so much on my ‘to do list that’ the thing I love to do in spare moments had to be pushed to the side for a while.

I have however made some bags, bags 028

and found a whole lot of this white cotton just dying to be dyed…Image

More on the outcomes of that soon, I think, unless that life thing distracts me again,

‘Till then,

A New Day, a New Bag

24 Apr

I made a new bag today, with some upholstery fabric, of which I have loads. The only other bags I’ve made using this fabric have been backpacks so it was really good to make something that was smaller and easily finished in half a day.  I love the colours of this fabric, there is such a range to choose from.  The chunkyness of it, although it frays easily and it takes a bit of steam and stitching to sit the seams flat, it does make up really beautifully.

I want to get making some more bags of different shapes and sizes over the next week or so for a possible business proposition….wish me luck:)  More to be shared on that soon.

Thanks for coming over.

They were fun to make, now I just need to figure out how to connect them and what to make…what do you think I should do?

Thanks for stopping by and enjoy your week:)

Fused Wall Art Collage

12 Apr

I finished of my little piece of fused ‘art collage’ it measures roughly 10″ by 12″.  I really like the idea of mounting these pieces on small frames.  So that’s what I did….

The interfacing I used was thicker than what Bethan Ash suggested – purely because I miss ordered some fleece fusible medium weight instead of interfacing.  It was great to quilt, but tricky to get perfect corners around the frame.

Enjoy your weekend.

Design Wall Monday – Fun Fusing With Scraps

8 Apr

I’ve been busy creating a small piece inspired by Bethan Ash’s book on Vibrant Quilt Collage.

It still needs a bit of work.  I fused these scraps from past projects.

Bethan Ash suggests mounting these small pieces on a frame.  I love this idea:)

Just need to add some more shapes, quilt it and find a frame.

‘Till then.
