Here we have Nadia graciously modelling the bag which is plenty big enough for trips to the beach... shops... overnight sleepovers etc.
|This is about the only gracious thing Nadia has done this weekend... talk about grouchy!!|
I used a cotton batting and straight line quilted the panels before sewing it all together... the straight line sewing (plus conferring with Nadia regarding design and colour placement) took longer than any other part of the construction.
Also on the agenda this week was getting a little something organised for my work secret santa gift exchange on Tuesday. Noodlehead's zippered pouch tutorial click here seemed like a sensible match for the QAYG log cabin block I had prepared earlier...
As my zip was the exact same length as the pouch measurements, I wasn't able to experiment with the zip hanging out the side like the tutorial describes... will have to give this a go another time. As an aside, I basically modified the instructions to create the Lucy bag above... great basic bag/pouch instructions.
Did anybody notice that I did a little link thing... all by myself... first time ever :-) Aren't I getting good?
