I haven’t had my sewing machine out for more than a month and I do miss it, instead to keep me in touch with something crafty I’ve been doing a bit of dyeing, experimenting with different hues of the same colour….
It’s been fun, more to follow soon and then perhaps a little sewing time too:)
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,
and found a whole lot of this white cotton just dying to be dyed…
More on the outcomes of that soon, I think, unless that life thing distracts me again,
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.
I got a bit hooked on making these wonky oval shapes and now have four
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:)

and I’m inspired all over again.
Hopefully tomorrow I can play some more;)
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.
