by cutting 2 1/2 inch squares of fabric pieces
and then they were so cute sitting there in the metal tin
that I had to sew some.........
yeah..........so much for "cleaning".
I sewed 7 of these 16 patches......2 at a time
kind of like that mountain to climb
because it was there...
because I can...
BUT I DID find some more sewn coin pieces in the pile
they were so pretty I just had to do something with them
so pulled out a coordinating red fat quarter
and proceeded to make a zippy bag
no pattern. I just used the size of the coin piece
cut it into 2 one for front and one for back
then cut some fabric about half the width of the coins and sewed to the top
added more red to the bottom
sewed in the zipper
turned and sewed the sides
made the little triangle thingys a the bottom to give it depth
and made a tie for the zipper
I didnt line it but next time I will try that with a pattern
I dont think it came out too bad for winging it
the angle of the camera is off. it is not wonky......
it is hard to photograph anything with cats around.
I twist and turn and try to get the shot before I
another gift that was unexpected for the Christmas box.
I should clean more often eh?
