Echino


Never heard of Echino fabric? It's the most beautiful fabric for bag making. Thanks to google I can provide full definition: Echino is the range of fabrics by Etsuko Furuya for Kokka Japan. Fresh,funky and slightly retro designs. Many of these fabrics are a cotton linen mix of a medium to heavyweight and are ideal for craft projects, bags, cushions etc.


I love the colours, prints and texture.


My husband brought me this fabric in two colourways directly from Japan but it's available in many fabric shops all over the world.


During January I made these simple pocket like pouches plus this little one from cutting leftovers.


I have few more prints and I love them all. I will be making new bag soon since the one I previously made is worn out from the daily use.

OMG - 02


OMG, it's already February 7th and there are only few hours left to link up our goal - one monthly goal. I'll go with this heart block which I would like to turn into cushion.


As a side project I'll be working on more hearts. You know, February :) I tested this small heart block and I want to make 9 of them and turn them also into cushion. If I don't suceed it might be my March goal. We'll see.

OMG - 01 completed


I made it! I completed the pouches today. No daylight available so pictures on my table will have to do the trick. Here is the goal setting post.


This year I even got calendar but as you see I haven't turned into this week yet :)


This one is the smallest. 1 cent for size comparison.


This one is the largest.


That's it. First month of the year is gone and I done pretty well. I was creative almost every day for a little a bit. I blogged more than last year and I even have few more things to take pictures of. Let's see what February brings.

Rainbow


Pink and red zipper has started this rainbow project. You can check those in my previous post.


Orange zipper used with log cabin piece.


Yellow with my fav four colour combo.


Green with 7 colours of chakras.


Turquoise is one of the OMG pouches.


My fav is this one with zipper leftovers. Indigo. This is how I made it.


I sewed one piece by one.


Similar like sewing with selvage.


And last one is violet.


Did you know there is a meaning behind rainbow colours? With a little help from Mr. Google:
Each of the original eight colours represented an idea: pink for sexuality, red for life, orange for healing, yellow for sun, green for nature, blue for art, indigo for harmony, and violet for spirit. Before becoming synonymous with fabulous pride movements, the rainbow flag has stood for many social movements.



Rainbow feels and sounds like a suitable word of 2020.

Felt edition


Last year I started these pouches with felt. Finally I have finished all of them.


Firstly I made these two. It's such a simple addition to denim but I like these two the most.


I continued with this twist.


These year I took this old wip and finished larger twist with pink zipper.


And sortly followed this one with red zipper. These were the first finishes of this year which resulted into completely new rainbow project. I'll talk about it more in my next post as this is dedicated to felt. It's so easy to work with and the outcome is just fine.
