Zoe is thrilled that I finally made a messenger bag for her. I love the fabric Zoe chose for the flap. It is the second messenger bag I have made using this beautiful butterfly fabric (purchased from Spotlight in the decorator section). Of course, I used my own tutorial!
This is the cotton tape name tag that Zoe opted for on the handle. I love the use of the star! I use a regular ink pad when stamping these, ensuring that I press the tape well to set the ink before sewing them into the project they are made for.
This is number 6 on my finish along list for the first quarter of 2015.
I managed to fit in a few other bits and pieces this month. I completed my March bee block for my Beehive quilting bee. This is the Chainlink block. I like it! The Queen bee who is the recipient of this block is making a quilt for her daughter who is living on campus at university.
I also made a poodle 'costume' for a niece. The 'puff' and the ears are attached to a flexible, rubber headband (with 'teeth' - I get annoyed with head bands that continually slip off!). I also made cuffs for her wrists and ankles. The sherpa fleece I used is extremely snuggly; I'd be happy to wear a onsie made from it.
The weather is finally changing here. I have welcomed the cooler weather and look forward to some rain in the coming weeks!
