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.

OMG - 01 + rainbow

I'm starting out the year as usual with OMG - One Monthly Goal. My project might look familiar to some. It was actually my OMG May 2019 goal.

I have named this project May the 4th as I started it on May 4th but I have changed my starting plans. Redoing some projects might not always work.

As you see I ended up with just one Darth Vader and stitched down the black center just as is for the other three. My goal is to finally finish these up.

I also changed my first pick of zippers. I have probably put the original pick back into drawer during past few months. The next step is to cut the lining and sew it all together.

Wishing all and OMG participants especially many rainbows in 2020 :)

Small finish which I did not share on blog. Made in 2019. There are definitely plans for some hand embroidery this year too.

Scrap/blog challenge

It seems that my blog got a little neglected this year so perfect time to reflect on it.

I have to admit I haven't read blogs either. It is so easy to go through pics on Instagram. Join in with a hashtag, like pictures just by clicking. You all know it.

Are blogs "dead" these days? Who knows. I'll try to revive mine next year and we'll see how it goes.

I'll be working on this scarp challenge. It fits well with my goal of using 100 zippers which I bought in April.

Oh yes, This type of pouch is still my fav.

Squares and stripes are the best way to use up any scraps.

It is challenging though since random placement isn't my kind of thing. Well I try but you can still notice some type of order :) Dark side, light side but at least the zipper pulls matches from one point of view.

                                                        Happy New Year to everyone!

Crossbody bag

Finally I made a new bag for my teenage daughter. I promised to make it a long time ago.

It was difficult to choose the fabric. She didn't want colorful bag since she wants to put some pins on the front.

There are three pockets on the front and I added just a bit of color to match the strap. Unfortunately we haven't found matching zipper with strap but the silver teeth on black fits just right.

There is only one pocket inside. The size is for larger sketch pads or book. The pattern is simple from one piece. It's kind of giant pouch, no side panels. You can check the progress pics over on my instagram.

I usually add extra batting to the bottom. Once quilted it forms the bag nicely.
