Twenty weeks to go . . . What shall I create this week?
Twenty-one weeks to go . . . I’m going to incorporating quilting in my weekly project.
Oh well, I didn’t do what I wanted to do, so I opted to make a quick change purse/pouch. Front and back pics of the project.
Twenty-four weeks to go . . . Next project, a reusable grocery bag; maybe two or three.
I made my first reusable grocery bag last night, July 17th, I used Shabby Fabrics – YouTube video tutorial. There’s a free downloadable pattern. I posted my pics and the video.
Twenty-five weeks to go . . . I’m going to make a cross body pouch.
Another phone pouch with an added twist; it’s a cross-body phone pouch.
Twenty-six weeks to go .. . ?
I had another busy week, so I’m posting another bucket hat that I made. It’s a Kitsch Bitsch bucket hat pattern and it’s reversible. The free pattern can be found at Lost in Paris. This was a quick and easy tutorial.
Twenty-eight weeks to go . . . There’s nothing new under the sun, just your interpretation.
This week I created something that was not sewn. I like to dabble in screen printing, so today I took a CYMK (cyan, yellow, magenta, and black) screen printing workshop at the Newark Print Shop. It’s not easy working with four colors but the results are awesome. Watching your colors blend before your eyes is really cool! My tester was done on paper, and then I screened a tote bag (not shown) and t-shirt. I used a picture of a quilt that I made. This is definitely an interesting process. The photo on the left is printed on paper, the middle photo (t-shirt) first yellow and then cyan, and the last photo (t-shirt) has all four colors.
Twenty-nine weeks to go . . . What should I create this week?
I took the easy way out again, and found a DIY quick project. I made a Journaling Bookmark (and pencil holder). The sewing tutorial can be found on Sew Can She‘s website. After I made the bookmark; I realized I should have added a medium to heavy interfacing to the back fabric for more stability.
