Something I have been meaning to do for a while…..Go Large!!….
No, not me ;-/ !
…with one of my little pattern creations!
Normally I consider the little multi-pocket pouches to be quite cute…..but this, well, it really blew my socks off when I’d finished it…
I woke up in the morning and the first thing on my mind was to find a piece of cream plaid fabric…strange what comes into your mind as you wake..maybe it’s my age?!? Anyway I knew exactly where it would be, NOW was to be ITS moment…even though I had never been able to decide what to use it for before..??
No sooner had I found it…. the kettle was on for second brew of the day, the rotary cutter was out, the iron was hissing steam and raring to go ;-D
Lots of stitching, folding and pinning, many more cups of tea and some time later…..It was a mega success!…I swear, even the fabric fairies must have been residing, as all the lines came together in just the right places 😀
I can’t tell you how mega happy it made me!!! So much so, I hung it on the door, just so I could keep looking at it !
They say….”If something works….leave it alone….”
Well, I just had to go and fiddle some more with one of my designs…What A Result!! Of course I didn’t stop there……..There’s a MINI-ME Too!!!!! 😉 A Unique Little and Large duo set, both with eight pockets and more lovely buttons.
I just had to indulge myself with the left over fabric…and create a Mini-Me matching Cute cosmetic pouch to match 😉
…And… a quick twirl…..YEP! Looking good at the back too!!! 😀
Some minor details; Mixed fabrics were used; Some lightweight cotton plaid canvas, a textured cream fabric for the interior and synthetic wadding to form a padded effect, one shoulder strap, for either cross bodied or shoulder wear, Little hand twisted cord tassel fasteners, Oh, and some lovely buttons too, all brought together to form lots of happiness !

How cute!!!! and the fabric fairies called round to keep an eye on your latest creation, a good day all round me thinks
Thanks so much Mrs P! It did cross my mind, maybe they were there to stock take the stout?!?…. and decided to throw in some good luck while they were at it 😉
Mrs P said:
Wow you have so much stout you have to have a stock take ??? LOL
The fact they decided to extol you with such good fortune on the sewing front obviously means a couple of bottles of stout will have to be sacrificed in order to celebrate the said visitation
I think you might be right !! 😉
Absolutely adorable! I love this new creation. ❤ 🙂
Thanks so much Jackie! And it’s lovely to see you back blogging too 🙂
You’re welcome and thank you! It’s good to be back. 🙂
Don’t you just love it when a plan comes together – happy day!
