According to the To-Do list I've made for this spring break,
I am supposed to do LOTS of things..lots of not fun things.
But I am spending so much time playing with fabric,
sewing, shopping at craft stores, browsing etsy shops
and ebay, and reading craft blogs, and brainstorming
what I make next, what I write next in my blog...
because these activities are much more fun and keep me happy!
I made the fabric basket again. Probably most of you discovered
this blog, because you found a link to this tutorial somewhere
in the blogsphere. I am very grateful for the opportunities that
the fabric basket tutorial brought for me - meeting you, seeing
your baskets, sharing ideas with you, and motivation to sew more!
Some of you asked me to make a tutorial for the patchwork
tote bag in the last post. Thanks for the fun idea! Maybe it's
going to be my next tutorial, though I can't promise when.
This is another project I worked on this week based on my
own tutorial. It's going to be a gift for my friend who is
so nice to always bring yummy homemade bakery when it's
still fresh and warm. I decided to make something for her
with this muffin print fabric, and this is the result.
The lining is entirely the muffin fabric. I hope she'll notice!
Another thing I've been working on is to decrease the amount of
fabric scraps that are getting out of control.. I am trying my
best to use scraps whenever I can, but for some reasons,
they keep increasing. Some seamstresses are great at
making things using just scraps and make me want to find
efficient ways to use up my scraps!
I keep them because I know they are great resources.
They have lots of possibilities to become contributors
for my projects.
I started piecing scraps together to make a drawstring bag.
I think it's a pretty good idea and can't wait to see it finished!
The fabric basket is now available in my shop;)
Thanks for looking!!
