Fourteen weeks to go . . . I took a bag making workshop with Michelle Reiter @njmqg (North Jersey Modern Quilt Guild); excellent instructor. So, I finally completed my Noodlehead Market Bag. I’m not too happy with my design choice for the binding and handles; too eager to finish, but I plan on making another one. The pattern is by Anna Graham.Click here for website.
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.
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 atLost in Paris. This was a quick and easy tutorial.
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 onSew 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.
Thirty-six weeks to go . . .I haven’t got a clue!Not sure what I’ll create this week.
Another busy week, spending time with family and friends. We celebrated my mom’s 80th birthday on Saturday, April 29th. So, I didn’t have time to think about making anything, until today. Since my guild NJMQG ( North Jersey Modern Quilt Guild) will be making the Open Wide Zippered Pouch: DIY Tutorial by Anna Graham. I decided to have a dry-run and make a sample first. You can find the tutorial at Noodlehead.
Thirty-seven weeks to go . . . Where will my creativity and the Internet take me this week?!
I didn’t make it in time! I’m sixteen minutes late, but I did finish my project for week 16. I made another One Hour Basket; mine took much longer because I made a scrappy quilt as you go exterior (front and back). You will love this quick and easy project.1 Hour Basket Tutorial
Forty-six more weeks to go . . . Surprise surprise! OH WELL! This was not a good week for me. I was busy working on my quilt that I’m displaying at the Quilt and Sewing Fest of New Jersey, March 2-5. So I bombed this week because I didn’t create anything new, but I did useSusie’s Magic Bindingon my quilt (picture on the right).
I’ve been an empty vessel. I couldn’t think of anything to share with anyone. Everything has been done and it didn’t make any sense in being redundant. I lost my charge! My battery was drained! But I’m back with New Beginnings . . .
I enjoyed making Jeni Baker’s lined drawstring bag. Her tutorial was easy to follow and quick to execute, so this is my Tips and Tutorials Tuesday. I’ve posted a picture of my bag. I thought about posting step by step pictures of what I did, but I don’t see any reason to reinvent the wheel; when everything’s been laid out for you. I hope you enjoy it!
