Sigve's first project
Sigve is ten years old and going into 5th grade in August. He decided he needed a new pencil case, and wanted to make it himself, so last week he and I were up early to work on his project (meaning we were sewing at 7.30 AM). He did a great job, the only things he let me help him with was the zig-zag around the applique, and the last seam on the zipper. He has now filled it with pencils, and he's ready for school to start again (well, not really LOL)
I've finished another bag- this time I made the "By-veska" (Town bag) by AnnAKa. I used the Cinderberry Stitches stitchery for the front of the bag, and two hearts from Leanne's book "Living the Dream" on the other side. This was a fun bag to make, it has lots of inside pockets, and it is the perfect size! I would love to make a few of this one, but first I need to finish up some UFO's. I thing they are playing a trick on me, multiplying themselves while I'm not watching... There are just so many quilts I want to make, and not enough time it seems...but oh, does it feel great to finish a project that's been laying around unfinished (or barely started) for a while.
Have a wonderful day everyone:)
