It seems I've been making as many little projects as anything lately, and I must say, it's suited me just fine. There's been a pincushion, a couple of mini quilts, and more. Like a gift bag for my FAITH Circle swap item (said pincushion). Svetlana/s.o.t.a.khandmade's drawstring bag always pleases, and it was such fun stitching it up with a couple of fat-quarters of Cotton + Steel. Though the twill tape ties seemed to be everyone's favorite part.
I also needed a handmade gift for my coworker's birthday, and after some mulling, I decided on a Big Patchwork Tote by Ayumi Mills/Pink Penguin from Krista Hennebury's book, Make It, Take It. I'd made one for daughter dear a while back, and was pretty sure my coworker had nothing like it, considering most of her handmade items had come from me over the years. Besides, this bag is a really enjoyable make, which was what I was definitely in the mood for. And I'd guessed right - she loved it. yay.
And most recently, I tried a new-to-me pattern for a Quilt-as-you-go Thread Catcher by Tessa/The Sewing Chick. This was a fun one too! Cutting the patchwork was a little fiddly, but the construction technique was terrific, and it measures 5" tall when done. Pretty darn cute, if you ask me!
So I really should get to some quilting, but it's great to have a few finishes, isn't it?
