In order to get my fix last weekend I made a makeup bag for my giveaway (and a spare one) in CK fabric, you know how I like to re-cycle stuff well I lined the bags with a Tesco Tea Towel.
This was such a pain to make as I was having an off day.
I snapped three needles (note to self, you can not sew through the metal part of a zip ~ I did this twice!!!), had to unpick a wonky seam and had to unpick one side of a zip sewn too close to the teeth! I added some beads to the zip pull and was too heavy handed with the pliers and smashed two little glass beads and had to take the loop off and start again from scratch. Aaaarrrggghhhhh!
I was so fed up, but I did persevere … see how much I love you guys?
As I had a couple of scraps left I made these simple greeting cards by sewing the material to the card with a zig zag stitch, and adding a little heart button.
This week I also made a very boring plain cotton cover for the extra seat cushion on mum’s chair (to raise her up whilst her poorly leg is mending), as it took me hours to do (it was huge!) I feel I need to post a picture even though it is totally uninspiring; however, she was delighted with it:
As the CK fabric has all but run out I will be forcing myself to make something different, watch this CK free space…
