Morning everyone. For this weeks Out of a Hat Creations challenge we are asking you to focus on a bit of sewing in your project. This can be hand sewn or machine sewn. As much or as little as you would like. Projects can be made from card or fabric. The choice is yours. Maybe you have a little project hidden away in cupboard that needs finishing. Now is the time to fish it out and share it with us.
My first project for the challenge is a canvas bag made out of some off cuts and scrap fabric. I lined the inside of the bag with some pale blue gingham.
Last year I purchased an old bag from the charity shop. The handles were perfect it was just the fabric that was a bit…. well “whiffy” for want of a better word!!! lol! I unpicked it, and used the pieces as a pattern which you can see here. The bag above is slightly different without the pleats.
I also made a couple of cards. My crafting and blogging time has been reduced lately so when I get chance to craft I have to go for it.
I think I need to refresh my sewing skills a little bit. The stitching is slightly dubious but oh well tomorrow is another day.
Stamps used: Dress forms, buttons and cotton reels – Chocolate Baroque. The dress makers label – Crafty Individuals.
Happy Crafting everyone.
Best Wishes Florence x
