I don't think I've ever finished something on my FAL list before the proposed finishes link has even closed - if I carry on like this I really might get quite a few things crossed off!
When I wrote my list last week, this is how these pouches looked:
All the bits were cut out, interfacing and wadding had been fused to the relevant pieces, and I was ready to start sewing. I do love this pattern (find it here) and, including these two pouches, I think I've made thirteen of them.
And this is how they looked when they were finished (when I hurriedly took a photo before wrapping them and giving them to Mam):
|Sorry, it's not the best photo but was all I could manage! And I promise that the right-hand side of the big pouch isn't deformed, I've just forgotten to arrange it nicely before taking the photo!|
I just need to work out what to do with the remaining scraps of her fabric:
It's not as much as it may look as those top two pieces (with the wadding fused onto the back) are about 3" x 7" - I have more of the grey triangles than anything else so that will be the feature fabric of whatever I make (storage basket? Another pouch?) and the rest will fill it out. If you have any bright ideas, please shout!
As this is also a finish which uses scraps, I'm linking up to Scraptastic Tuesday with Nicky and Leanne:
He might be nearly sixteen, but Archie decided that a bit of ball chasing was in order the other night - this is the first time he's shown more than a passing interest in it in ages, but he loved it! He (gently, I made sure of that!) chased it round the floor and kept fetching it back so I'd roll it again. He hasn't touched it since but I've checked with the vet and as long as he's not running wildly round or twisting/jumping (he has a bad back) then he's fine to continue. In the vet's words: if he's happy to play with the ball and he enjoys it, then let him. I couldn't agree more!
|Play with me!!|
Look at that waggy tail!
Thanks for popping in! If you haven't already done so then you have a couple of days left to link up your FAL list (link closes 11pm EST 16th January/4am GMT 17th January). Leave me a link to your list if I haven't already visited you and I'll pop over and see
