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..

Q2 - Echino bag

Have you noticed May? Somehow it passed me by. Never mind we have June. I finally made my bag and I'm already using it. I can finally tick off first project from my Q2 list.

I actually just made the top and reused the inside. My favorite old bag just needed a face lift. I used the old zippers and handle too. You can see first version of this bag here.

See the old pink lining? It still looks fine even after washing.

Zippers fits well too.

The reason I replaced the old fabric was that it got all worn out. I haven't used any particular pattern. It is simple messenger type of bag.

The new addition I made are front pockets.

Just right for my work keys and sunglasses.

Hot pink details are still my fav thing.
I'll be linking up with FAL2018 and TGIFF, buttons on side bar.
Things don't seem to work like they used to. Sorry for not replying to your comments I kind of found them late :)

The 100 day project - part 3

I'm still trying to be creative and make stuff out of my drawers. These two cute pouches are made out of scraps and leftovers.

Here is a peak at my IG account. I did not manage to create every day but that's fine by me.

These are postage stamp blocks. Technique I really like to use. Here is tutorial on how to do it.

Pouches are made out of one piece. 66 squares in total.

As usual I made the handle out of long zipper.

Linking up with finish it up Friday! and  more
