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.

The 100 day project - part 2

This week I made this trio.

I started with little pouch which I made out of leftovers.

It is classic open wide pouch with added handle.

I make these pouches out of one piece so there is no seam at the bottom.

The lining is also out of one piece.

Second pouch I made this week is out of Echino scraps and selvadges.

I didn't feel like making zipper end so I just folded the end of zipper and added D ring.

I just love the look of Echino fabrics :)

It might not look like but it is also just one piece.

And no seam at the bottom ;)

I also made these tiny covers. They are designed for 1 coin which some stores use for shopping carts. I made mine to carry my earings. Due to morning rush I sometimes forget earings and it bothers me later during the day so now I'll carry extra pair just in case. That's it :)

Linking up with Finish is up Friday!

2018 FAL Q2 list

I don't want to miss the opportunity to join in for Q2 so I made up my list. Two projects from previous quarter plus a new challenge which I named for myself as "save the basket"

- love wall hanging is all quilted and the binding is also ready

- there was no progress on Echino bag but I really need a new bag :)

That is the basket I'm going to save :) Laundry basket which is filled with clothes to be repaired and some UFOs as well.

- animal wall hanging, some of you might remember this project which I started a long time ago. I do have the back side as well and the batting ready. I just need to take next step baste+quilt it.

- optical illusion, project I made as part of Pantone challenge

- bears, there is also a box filled with leftovers to be used. The plan was to make some bears out of it.

I decided to keep a track of all quarters this year. Those crossed off projects look so good :D and any progress is good!
