OMG - 09


I haven't done this for a while but hey anyone can join in any time of the year. So here is my OMG goal for September. I would like to finish these bits in progress.


I ran out of black thread some time ago. I finally got a new spool.


Not sure which zipper I'll use for these bits.


I also have this piece ready for quilting.


Last one is this rainbow piece. As you see they are in various stages making a mess lying around my table. Therefore they need to be finished as part of the cleaning process :)

Charm squares experiment


Last month I used up the very last bits of charm squares. I also took these pics but somehow didn't blog about it.


Yellow zipper for a change.


The triangles are going all the way round.


My all time fav is actually pink zipper :)


These tiny bits are just raw edge applique.


It all started with a mini and I kept using the remaining charm squares bits.
I managed to add color accent to 2 minis, 4 mini pouches and 2 pencil cases.
Maybe I repeat this one day as it look so pretty all together :)

2018 FAL Q3 list


Let's face it! Only 1 finish for quarter 2. I can just copy my Q2 FAL list once again and give it another try.


I have only added one more project to the list. I would like to up cycle this bag. I already washed it and the idea is to turn it into funny pack. Will that work? I don't know but I just don't want to throw it away. It is all worn out at the top. It was well used and loved.



So here is recap photos of my projects. If you interested you can read more in Q2 list.

1- love wall hanging - just needs to add binding and hanging sleeve


2 - animals wall hanging - any progress would be good!


3 - optical illusion

4 - bears


5 - bag up cycling

So the goal is clear. Save the basket! Don't get side tracked with another project :) Do it!

The 100 day project - part 5


Those of you who follow me on Instagram already seen my word board. It's a great addition and makes taking photos easier and stylish.


As per usual I make these pouches out of one piece so no seam at the bottom.


Each one is different. I made some zipper pulls out of scraps too.


Some also have some funky lining.


Does anyone remember the elephant from my old Echino bag?


I put it together with some other scraps and made a gift for teacher.


Hopefully she'll like it.


There are few more pouches before this 100 day project is over ..

The 100 day project - part 4


I'm still doing that IG thing :) I fall behind few days and than catch up again.


Here are some finishes I wanted to share. Cutlery pouch or a pencil case. Anyway you want to call these.


I previously made one (the one at the bottom). I like the long loop handle which fits around the arm. Perfect for carrying it around.


I pulled out this mini out of drawer and finished binding.


I made it the same size as the first one. Now I have a duo minis.


Another small triangle pouch with a zipper handle.


There are the tiniest triangles at the back.


Meantime I finished some more pouches but I haven't took the pictures yet. So I see you soon..
