Gently getting into WIPsMay 1, 2017 / byKerry / Categories : Feeds
I have just a few WIPs, one of which is the Quilt Workout applique special, but I’m not sure if I’m quite ready for that size project yet. For the time being, I decided to work on the Blanche barrel bags (larger size) by Swoon Patterns that I cut out for Christmas fairs and didn’t finish. Well, two of them out of four because I need some more premade piping. I made the mistake of glue basting the zipper in when I took them with me to work on at Addie’s (pattern says you can do this, but I don’t recommend it folks!), so I had to unpick the topstitch – which I didn’t like anyway – and wash the top edge.
Here they are all finished!
Two more to go!
I think I’ll offer it as a class in the summer (one of my motivations to get it done), because I think people can be a little cautious of working with rivets and leather/vinyl and this will show how easy it is! I’m keeping the yellow one because it had a small accident with a pair of sharp scissors. I also prefer the flowery one’s shape, so that will be the store sample and eventually go into my Etsy shop when I reopen it.
I also started and finished this little wallet…
It’s the Wisteria Wallet by Blue Calla Patterns. I’m not sure I like the size and style just yet because it’s basically a pouch with card slots on the outside but I’m trying it out for a few days. I’m also probably going to make a Pearl wallet and decide which one I like best to keep for myself.
By the way I finished a quilt about 2 weeks ago but I haven’t got round to good photos yet…. Soon!
P.S. Sorry if I’ve not responded to a comment on my last couple of posts – WordPress wasn’t sending them through to my email again but I think we are back now.

We have said Ivy is part cat pretty much her whole life. She does what she wants, when she wants. I bought this Wildcat sweatshirting for her two years ago, because it reminded me of her. She is my wildcat. I finally got around to making something of it for her kindergarten wardrobe. Another Ottobre pattern. […]read more
This is a sponsored post written by me on behalf of Reeves. All opinions are 100% mine. There’s no question that florals are a hot trend right now…which almost doesn’t seem worth noting, since to me, florals are timeless. Wherever you fall on the floral trend spectrum, I’ve partnered up with Reeves to share a quick, easy,…read more
Being a person who sometimes gets sucked onto the latest pattern bandwagon, when the True Bias Lodo dress came out, I thought that maybe I’d give it a try. Even though it was winter here in Australia. Hey, how about I sewed a winter version to wear as a layering piece? The pattern is super… Continue reading Winter Lodoread more
