I'd promised a reveal on that secret project, so here we go.
Last month Cynthia from Quilting is More Fun than Housework was featuring May is for Makers, and one of her posts highlighted Love from Beth's storage pods pattern. While checking out the pattern on Craftsy, I saw something else by the designer.
This pattern is the one that caught my eye. I no sooner saw it than I clicked on it to purchase. It was absolutely what I had been looking for, without even knowing I was looking for it!
(I thought I had more progess shots, but I was wrong)
were assembled into a hexie-shaped basket that I gave my oldest daughter for her birthday. As you can see, she's already put it to use holding her needle-felting supplies.
The pattern was a bit more fiddly than I expected, but the result is truly satisfying. I'll be making another in the not too distant future.
So, flushed with success, I moved on to making my third Sew Together bag - this one for me! Once again, I thought I had more process shots. Wrong again...
Here's the inside ready for the zipper-handle installation,
and here's what the outside looked like at that point as well.
The inside all finished -
and put to use.
This one will be my hand-sewing/applique organizer. You can see some of my Quilty 365 orange peels already living inside.
If anyone is planning to make this bag (and you all should be - it's a terrific bag!), I found this tutorial really helpful.
So that's two bags full. Now I'm ready for a third. Anyone have a favorite bag pattern to recommend?
I'm always up for a new challenge.
