Retreat Treats part 2!

Over the last week I have been playing with the treats; I sewed the final button on this morning, having pretty much swam back from helping at school, and now they are done.

I am really pleased with the results.  They are all subtly different, as well as the colour, because that's obviously different!




Mine is the orange one, and I won't show too much detail of the others now, so there is a little surprise left at FQ Retreat.



The Pretty Linen Pouch pattern is another of the more simpler ones in the Zakka Style book; the time consuming bit putting these together was deciding which embellishments to use or disregard.

I hope my, as yet unknown, swap group like them.

They measure up at 5.5" x 7" and I think I will be using mine for all my machine feet and gubbins that currently reside in the original classy little plastic bags that came with my sewing machine.



I'm still waiting to hear of the safe arrival of the name tag, then I will relax and probably make a few more bits for Retreat just for the fun of it.

And because it would be silly not to say anything... there's still just about time to cast your vote for your favourite HST creation over at the  Canoe Ridge Creations - Festival of Half Square Triangles x

  23. I've seen the book before but finally got my hands on the library copy yesterday. When I came to the small pouch, I immediately wanted to make the front embellishment 'applique' into a pocket.
    Where did you get the thumb hook hardware (for lack of a highly technical name)?

    I going to see if I can sew some of the projects up this weekend and see where I go with them.

    Your FQ circle will be over the moon with these.
