Not a whole lot going on this week, I didn't get my usual weekend sewing time since we've been busy working around the house to get ready for Goose's arrival. Can you believe he's due in just 5 short weeks! Yikes!
Started: I'm working on the zipper tutorial I mentioned last week, but unfortunately I won't be sharing it until the end of August. I'll have more details about that later though.
I've at least looked at the fabric for my July bee block in the String Me Along bee. It's a start. ;)
In progress: Goose's quilt. I'm still waiting on a little more fabric for the back.
June's bee block. Yes, I know I'm really late by now, and even my excuse of getting the fabric late isn't cutting it anymore. The problem is I really want to make the circle of geese block, but I'm really worried about not having enough fabric or screwing it up. I haven't been able to find another block pattern I like as much, so I haven't given up on it yet.
Completed: The pouch for me! It's not small, I realized last time my picture of the exterior pieces had no size reference & I think most of you assumed they were made of small patchwork. Each piece was actually about 13" square (disappearing 9-patch made from charm squares), so the finished pouch is about 12" across on the top, 9" across on the bottom, 10.5" tall, and 3" deep. Definitely bigger than I was planning, but after I made the patchwork, I just couldn't bring myself to cut it down to make the size I originally wanted. I love the finished bag though, so I know it'll go to good use! And since I still want something to be able to throw my wallet, phone, and a few other little things in, I guess that means I need to make another for myself. Oh darn. ;)
I made my second attempt at an interior zipper pocket, which looks much, much better than the last time. Unfortunately, I wasn't thinking & sewed my pocket fabric in the wrong way, so the interfacing is on the inside of the pocket. Oops! At least this one is just for me, and I've (hopefully!) learned my lesson.
Like I said, it's been a pretty slow week, but that's alright.
Make sure you head over to Freshly Pieced to see what everybody else has been up to this week.
Until next time...
