My latest sewing spree started with a pincushion...well, 4 pincushions really but, I will have to save those for later since there's a little swap goodness goin' on! I figured I might as well make one for myself whilst I was at it. I'm still on my tin can recycling craze so, of course one tiny one was used in the making of this pincushion.
Then of course there were a pair of hot pants.
Since my mom is coming, I decided it was finally time for me to make that handbag I have been promising her for oh...over 2 years! I used The Phoebe Bag Pattern by Artsy-Crafty Babe which is free!
My mom asked me to use this rare and lovely vintage decor fabric for the exterior and Heather Bailey for FreeSpirit on the interior.
I really like how it turned out. I used fusible fleece for the first time and it gave the bag a nice structure and definition. I recommend the pattern, it's not too fussy and has nice lines. I may make one for myself in the future. I hope my mom likes it!
Lastly, hot off the machine, are a couple of simple patchwork cushions.
Our couch is in desperate need of pretty cushions. My usual routine is to take at least a week agonizing over fabric combinations and then changing my mind a few times...in the end still no cushions. So, I grabbed a bunch of vintage scraps and threw them together thinking they were temporary solutions to our cushion crisis. Turns out they may be a bit silly but, they make me quite happy. Now I just need to make a few more.
All I want to do right now is sew! Alas, there are pressing matters that need my attention so away I go. I shall return next week after my mom's visit. Until then, take care my dears!
