I actually made a big dent in my TEAL Selvedge bin! There wasn't much in it before, now it is really bare! But, that's a good thing, right? RIGHT!!
I used the Selvedge bin for these 5 "That Thirties Thing" blocks.
And then I dug in the bin again to make these 12 String Blocks. I didn't think I had enough variety, but I think they came out just fine. I felt like I was using the same fabrics over and over and over again! It kinda got boring!!
I haven't started on my Flower Blocks yet and they might not get made this month. And next month I will really fall behind since I will be away from my sewing studio for 3 weeks!! I will catch up later!!
I also wanted to make something with these 2 fabrics.
And this is what I made.
It is the Runaround Bag from Lazy Girl Designs. It is my go to pattern for small bags. I have added the 'boxed' bottom and divided inside pocket. It does have the outside pocket which holds my cellphone. It's only 7"x9" and it is all I need. Never have liked a big purse!
EDITED TO ADD: It is actually 8"x9". I forgot that I added an inch to the width. I would have to jam my cellphone in the back outside pocket, on my previous bags, so I wanted to see if it would be better this time. Just don't want my phone to fall out!! Will keep you posted!
I also love making zipper pulls.
Sorry for the poor picture quality. It has brown beads and blue heart shaped beads.
I also had my 16 year old Grand niece here for 3 days. I have been teaching her to sew. She is making her 2nd dress and is really doing a great job. She is not interested in quilting................yet!!!
I am sorry to see TEAL come to an end, but am looking forward to a new color. Stop by SoScrappy to see what other TEAL blocks were made this week.
