E reader covers

I have been having great fun sewing these Kindle covers. This one has just gone on Etsy, but over the weekend I made three, two were requests, so it’s lovely that people like and use them, gives me a little kick.

Next on my sewing list is to finish off curtains started a while ago for the dining room.  I thought I would do the job properly, but didn’t realise how much hand sewing is involved, still only small windows in this cottage of ours so onward and upward and raise the curtain I say!

Off for coffee now, with a pic of finished curtains with any luck.  X

Mad March

I have been feeling very smug with myself recently, I have managed to get a few gifts sewn and have erased a few jobs from my burgeoning “to do” list. A great feeling isn’t it?

Today the post man arrived with a thank you present from a happy recipient of two baby  sleep sacs I had made for gorgeous twin boys.  Stupidly I forgot to take a pic of the sleep sacs but I am dying to study my new books, people are so kind.   Have attached a link to tempt you!

On the Go Bags  Love to Sew 

I have also just finished a slightly overdue request.  A Kindle Fire slip cover made from my friends favourite denim skirt she no longer wanted to wear.  But now she has it recycled and I think it worked well. Well padded and lined it should continue to be a favourite!

Up early this morning, my best creative time, and I got the preparation done for a sewing session on Friday. All these pieces are interfaced, well almost all. And the labels are an absolute necessity.  I am helping a group of clever ladies piece together a sweet shoulder bag, I have sewn one up already and written about it  here.   Zip and Clip Bag

Look at all the pieces for just one bag, I really should calculate the time it takes to complete, so I am ready next time a prospective purchaser asks!

I am really looking forward to working with everyone to get this bag finished, we have already been on a Quilting Trail of 3 shops to buy fabrics and notions.  I used to go on pub crawls in my youth, but now its quilting shops so much easier on the head!

But my fabrics were all bought in India, hence the lovely bright colours, perfect!  And now I have two new books for inspiration, what joy.
