It’s just eight weeks from tomorrow!
I know it’s getting close because of what's coming off my sewing machine:
First I made this apron (on behalf of DD) for a “Secret Santa Swap” at Caring Hearts Community Quilters. DD was given the panel (called “A Christmas Gathering”) but there’s no way she has time to sit at the sewing machine with two very active under-threes! I’m sorry some of it is missing but this is as much as WM took! I love this so much I’d like to keep it for myself! So would DD (who was conveniently wearing a red tee-shirt when modelling)!
Secondly, this book which I started last year and never finished -- a gift for the Grandsons who both love books. Older Grandson will love identifying the animals and Younger Grandson needs cloth books because he still puts everything in his mouth and his teeth damage cardboard books!
This has nothing to do with Christmas but I am so glad to finally have it finished!
First the inside view with its two generous pockets. My teacher, Kerry, and I designed this bag as we went along.
It had to fit this panel (designed by Kerry, embroidered by me) and will be used to carry my sewing/embroidery supplies.
It may look small the way I’m holding it but in fact it is 38cm (15 inches) wide, 35.5cm (14 inches) tall and 18cm (7 inches) deep.
It is actually a very deep purple colour as shown on the sunlit (right) side of the bag, not the royal blue shown on your left!
Goodbye to the green eco-bag from the local supermarket that used to carry my sewing supplies!
What about you -- are you crafting gifts for Christmas?
