Not only a fact, but a new magazine too! My subscription copy arrived this morning, complete with Liberty bonus booklet and a FQ of Kirstie fabric!
I had about 2 minutes to flick through it before heading out for a rather bracing Easter Egg hunt; 1 hour of clues and questions, up and down some rather big hills, and all for a cream egg for the kids! Still, it means I can indulge later with a clear conscience.
So back home and after lunch, I pulled out the FQ and knew exactly what I wanted to make...
I used Svetlana's excellent tutorial to make this drawstring bag. I haven't made a casing top like this one before, and I like how easy it was and how cool it looks.
The casing and lining were scraps I won from Collette, and they match perfectly, and I knew this was the project to use one of my long-time coveted and ultra-precious kerchief girls from Brit Bee Terri...
Finished off with some aqua ribbon, and only after I had finished, I realised not only was it the same colour, but a perfect fit for my filofax.
I would love to be able to tell you more about the actual magazine, but I haven't had the chance to really look yet. However tomorrow I only have to cook the Easter lunch, so I am planning on putting my feet up, having a good read, and maybe eating a little chocolate; I am looking forward to it!
