Now that Christmas has been and gone, the gifts have been unwrapped and live with their new owners, I can finally reveal some of the secret sewing I had been doing, that I hadn't been able to show on here. First up two gifts for my sister:
- a large fabric bowl, for all her fabric scraps. Now this is a big bowl, at least 8 or 9" high ( yes I forgot to take note of the dimensions when I made it) I used the pattern from Nova as a basis and just made my own size. The paper pieced word comes from here. Lots of bright cheery fabrics for this.
- A Sew Together Bag - lots of scraps including Bonnie & Camille, Heather Bailey and Carolyn Friedlander. The inside is lined with a fabric from Heather Bailey's Up Parasol range, and inside pockets in a minty dot.
- Finally a pouch for my Mum - she is travelling to Europe next year, and wanted a pouch to put in her day bag. I had the perfect lining fabric and then filled the pouch with some little goodies for travellers, like ear plugs, lip balm, hand cream, tissues etc.
