I just updated the Classes page with the July schedule!
Check out the details on these great projects!
Baby Blocks. This is a Marci Baker pattern & much easier than it looks- it’s all strip pieced!
Mr. Crab (mini quilt). Isn’t he adorable?
Quilted Grommet Bag. This came together so fast & I made the whole thing from scraps!
I hope you join us for these great upcoming classes!
It’s been another random week here at Casa de Craft.
I made another bag I’m really happy with:
(fancy pocket inside)
These bags are addictive. I want to make more!!! I’m getting all sorts of ideas. It doesn’t help that Saturday evening I got some great inspiration for bags as well.
Of course I’ve done some knitting. This is my Ravelympics sweater all blocked. I sorta didn’t do a gauge swatch. I sorta forgot I was working with alpaca which grows like a 2 year old. So it didn’t exactly turn out like I had imagined it would. Not incredibly in love with it, but I have to keep reminding myself it was just supposed to be a nice comfy cardigan to wear.
See that quilt in the background?
Here’s a close up:
Yeah, I’m missing one lousy lime green square. I really don’t want to go buy another fat quarter to fill this in, but I think I’ll break down & do it. Amazingly enough I don’t have any lime green batik scraps around the studio.
Maybe I’ll just buy some more pink as well as make it larger. That’s an idea……
I made a bag.
A nice, bright, spring bag.
I quite proud of this bag.
I actually Sewed it. Notice this is sewing with a capital S. This is not homemade, this is the good stuff.
I had to assemble a paper pattern. I even made a lining (from the 2 corresponding fabrics I bought!)
I researched french seams to make the bag more durable. I took my time ironing the bag, so it wouldn’t look wonky. I even very slowly stitched all around my seams to “set” everything & make it look even more professional.
This was a success. I will proudly carry this bag around in public. I think I’m going to make another bag.
