Today I will be in the company of some of my bestest sewing friends; Brit Bee hits the south coast!
I am not sure what time I will be home - not too late, but I know I will be exhausted and fit for nothing by the time I get back through the door. So I am scheduling this so you don't feel like you are totally missing out!
Some of my secret makes have been for today.
The mini (3/4") hexies have been made into little keyrings.
I used Tacha's Sew Mama Sew tutorial but decided (unwisely) to machine stitch the folded hexies together.
Talk about sewing in the dark - I literally was, but only in the cold light of day can my wobbly stitching, (made extra special with a bent needle!) be seen in full gory detail. I am consoling myself that now my buddies will have a bit of hardware they can put onto something else at some point!
Secondly, and way more accomplished, the T-bag I made for Terri. Totally inspired by the awesome H-bag that Nova sent me, I perfected my Y-seams and made this for my special friend...
I used Jeni's method to make the drawstring bag, but did not box the corners, otherwise the T lines would have been spoilt.
So some of the secrets are out, and I promise to fill you in with the day's fun and games tomorrow.
Happy Saturday everyone xxx
