Just popping in to say hello and show you what I’ve been up to lately. Not nearly enough in the crafting department I’m afraid!
Anyway, after using the batik fabrics on my last project, I remembered that I had a few scraps of other batiks in my stash. I haven’t had time to tackle a quilt top but found a lovely tutorial for this zipper pouch and I couldn’t resist making it.
I used different fabrics on the front and back. From the other side it looks like this.
The main fabric here isn’t a batik but it matches very well. The inset fabric is my favourite Moda Bella solids which are available in my shop.
It is also fully lined with white Moda Bella Solids.
Did you spot the pretty lace? Well, that belonged to my late Aunt Edith so it is probably from the 1960’s. It would have been left over from one of the bridesmaid’s dresses that she used to make. If you’d like to make this bag, pop over to Pattydoo where you will find the pattern and a fab tutorial. I know I’ll make many more bags using this pattern so thank you very much to Ina for sharing .
I’ve also just finished stitching a card for my daughter’s birthday which you can see over on my other blog Sewing Beside the Sea. It would be nice to see you over there!
Enjoy the rest of the weekend,
