I can't believe its Wednesday already! Having a three day snow weekend, followed by a frantic Tuesday trying to get caught up at work has made time fly!
So, what have I been working on? If you have read my previous several posts you will see that I have been making lots of purses. Yesterday I made another clothespin bag. Before work I chose the fabric and cut out the pieces. Then after work and supper last night, I sewed it together:
I am also working on a bag made from yellow and blue charm squares and denim. Each 5inch charm square is cut into three 1 1/2 inch wide strips. I use 12 strips for each side of the bag.
Once these are sewn together I will have two 12 1/2 inch by 4 3/4 inch rectangles. From the denim I will cut a 9 1/2 inch by 12 1/2 inch rectangle. When all three of these rectangles are sewn together I'll have one large rectangle for the outside of the bag which will be made into a quilt sandwich and machine quilted.
This blue, yellow and denim bag will be made like these two I made last week:
I also have 3 special orders to work on, as well as the many other ideas I've got in my head.
So Whatcha working on? Check out Leslie's Blog for more Whatcha Working On Wednesday Posts.
