I joined yet another swap on Flickr.
This one is particularly fun because you get to make a pretty pouch, I love a small sewing project one that I can start and finish in a day....you know keeping things simple ;-)
Well that was until I decided I just had to make the sewing bag from Suzuko Koseki's latest book Natural Patchwork
Granted I still finished it in a day but I spent it glued behind my machine!
This is not the easiest little bag to sew, the courthouse step blocks are tiny finishing at 2 1/2" x 4" but they're cute and you only need four blocks. I made three instead because I couldn't find a zipper long enough. It's the gusset that had me uttering one or two lets say 'less than ladylike" words!
I love how this turned out though, and I sure hope my partner will too.
Need to make one for me now...or could I persuade my partner to make me one?
