Crazy Patch Fun

April 22, 2010

Hello I'm afraid I've been really slack at doing posts this month, sometimes life just takes over. But I'm back and I wanted to share my latest sewing project with you. I have been busy making bags, they are such fun, I find as I am making one another idea for another bag is running around in my head. I love that these are so quick and easy, you can let your imagination run wild, which is what I have been doing. I have had such fun today doing crazy patch, so far I only have the front of the bag together ready for all the wonderful embellishment that I am itching to do. I will be able to play with all the fancy stitches on my new machine and all the trims I have collected. Here is a picture of the unfinished front of the bag. Doing crazy patch is such fun you don't have to worry about accuracy, it is total freedom. I was a little worried about my colour choices at first but it has worked out fine. I will post the finnished bag in the next post, hopefully by next week. Here is one I've almost finished, just waiting for the magnetic clasp. This one needs a name, any suggestions? Love to read your comments Happy stitching Sharon

I had so much fun making the video I now have many more planned.

Lately I have been sorting through my pile of quilts and have come across some of my long lost treasures. I thought I would share some of my memories of making these lovely quilts, cushions and table runners with you.

First on the list is the Wreath cushion, made quite some time ago now. I loved making this cushion from start to finish. It was one of those projects where everything seemed to fall into place just the way I had imagined it.
