After a slow start to February I'm now getting used to going to the gym and not coming back completely whacked. In fact quite the opposite, I'm full of energy and raring to go.
Friday I did the Spring cleaning in my sewing room becasue I just couldn't bare the mess any longer. On Saturday a customer came round to pick up a patchwork bag I'd made for her.
She went away and about an hour later phoned me to say she'd gone to visit her friend who saw her bag and wanted one as well as a wallet to match. With so much still to do and so little time to do it in I quickly set about making another one and a wallet and finished them yesterday. Pretty quick but I must admit that yesterday we had leftovers for lunch so it meant that I was able to sit and sew from morning till evening.
This is the wallet.
And this is the second bag. The same but with slight differences. The fabrics are the same but came out different in each block.
I used a plastic zip instead of the metal zip because I didn't have the brass coloured zip ends to match.
The back is also slightly different. I used brown stripes either side of the center panel because I'd finished the one like on the first bag.
Both bags had these cute roses embroidered on them.
Today I finished making two more wallets that had previously been cut out so I'll be showing you those tomorrow or the day after.
February is turning out to be quite productive after all.
