This month is a month of birthdays so it’s the perfect excuse for more makings …..whether people want them or not!
So far I’ve completed a makeup bag for my boyfriend’s mum, I’m on to yet another purse and trialling some felted things.
This is said make up bag….
I was pretty pleased with this as it’s the first time I’ve been able to make a purse type thing without having to consult the instructions every five minutes.
UFO, WIP, NFO whatever you want to call it, it’s finished!
To be honest this one hasn’t been in the queue that long, but still it’s good to complete it especially after a poor start.
As usual things didn’t go to plan. I sat down this afternoon with a couple of hours free, thinking that it would be done in one, but it wasn’t to be (no rhyme intended..ha ha).
My intention was to line it, stitch the sides, make the button hole and add the button. Simple no? Well, no.
Lining the felt was fine see…….
I also reinforced the top and bottom edges using the freehand embroidery foot and zig zag stitch. I don’t know if there is a better way of doing this. If there is please let me know.
