Hello! It has been busy here since I last wrote.
The time just seems to disappear.... I don't know where it goes but, I have managed to finish off a few little projects to show you.
In between all the usual household 'stuff' that there is to do, I have managed to get some time in my sewing room and I have made a few fabric covered notebooks.
I am really pleased with them. They all have a little bit of embellishment.... some ribbon or lace and a button or a little applique.
I also made another fabric basket. This one I made using a different technique to the last time. I am very pleased with it as, it stands up well.
I started with a piece of batting and I fused some bondaweb to it. I then peeled the backing paper off and covered the whole piece with scraps of fabric which I then fused into place. I overlapped the pieces each time I added them. I finished all the raw edges using a machine zig-zag stitch. I then used the finished piece of patchwork to make the basket. The bondaweb gave it extra support which is useful in a basket. I finished it off by adding a little butterfly button. Hope you like it!
I'm eagerly awaiting a couple of new books which should be arriving this week. I'll show you them next time if I have them.
I also have to start making some progress on my next sew-a-long project. I have only got as far as tracing the embroidery design and hooping it ready to be stitched so far!! Hopefully, I will get some more done over the next few days.... until the next time xx
