2018 FAL Q4 list


Let's face it Q3 was not the best one just like Q2. I'm still trying to restart my sewjo and blogjo :) but somehow the real life is taking over. I kind of miss my alternative creative and blogging space so maybe it's the right time to actually do something. Therefore I just keep my Q3 list and add one more thing. Pouches. Yeah I still have that pile of in progress pouches I wanted to finish in September.


Here is recap photo collage of those poor projects I keep "dragging" from quarter to quarter.



I actually finished 2 bears. I have also alternate the pattern as the material called for Koala bear. I already gave one away and my current pile in progress looks like this.


Besides my FAL list ideas of projects are growing. Bits and pieces are jumping out of drawer. I gave away almost all pouches I made so I need to stock up for future gifts for sure. Plus you know those promises we make. Oh yeah, sure, I can make this for you and also that, yeah, sure. What is your favorite color? Blue-sky talking? Sounds familiar? I really mean to make all those things ... one day :)

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 ..
