First let's take a look at the design wall. I finally had a flash of genius that I could make a sleeve on a piece of batting and put it up instead of a quilt in my sewing area. Duh! Took me long enough to think of this. It's not very big but it least it is a place where I can put things up and in my sight. The projects here at the moment were worked on a little last week not today. There is one UFO from a class about 5 years ago called Wonky House. It is at the embellishment and finish me up stage so I'm hoping that putting it in my sight will inspire me. Then there is a little birdie stitchery that begs to be finished with a border and maybe made into a pillow. There are two flip-flop blocks that I'll take to the exchange raffle at guild next Saturday. Lastly is a sample block for making a baby quilt for community quilts.
And now the Saturday sewing. I found this tutorial on-line at Skip To My Lou. It was so cute and looked so easy to make. I printed the pattern and picked out some fabric. Then I went off to fix dinner. After dinner DH wanted to watch a movie. Turns out that the NetFlix movie option, Inception, wasn't quite my cup of tea. So I returned to sewing and in less than an hour I had a cute little Pleated Zippered Pouch. What I really liked is I learned how to inset a zipper into the lining.
It measures about 7" by 5". It was super simple to make with the tutorial. I can see myself making several more.
