Started this week: I'm trying to work a bit ahead on the Sew Along so that I can answer questions, and maybe keep up this summer when things get crazy. I picked out fabric & got the pieces cut out for March's pattern - the Origami Bags. I've decided to make three of the extra small pattern (there are six sizes to choose from!).
Each of these is actually a pair that will be a separate bag. I'm using all scraps I bought from Keyka Lou, and even though some of them are pretty good size, none were big enough for the lining pieces. Instead of doing a pieced interior, I've decided to just use muslin & will be sure to use interfacing (not called for in the pattern) since it's thin.
In progress: Yes, I'm still working on the postage stamp quilt & no, I haven't made any progress from last week. I really need a few uninterrupted hours to just sit down and go on it, but I always manage to find a better use of my time. It'll get done, I promise. Hopefully sooner rather than later.
Completed this week: The Heidi Bag from Vibrant Designs. I love how quick & easy this went together, even though I had minimal sewing time. A looming deadline will really get my butt in gear though. :)
Non-sewing related accomplishments this week: I'm really too excited about this not to share - thanks to some help (and lots of hard work) from my mom, we got all the wallpaper stripped from the baby's room! There is still a lot of work to do in the room, but this is a huge step. Next up is patching the walls so I can actually paint. No, we still don't know what we're having (and haven't decided yet if we'll find out), but either way I'm painting the walls Pistachio Ice Cream.
Until next time...
