I have fallen so far behind in blogging and projects that I don't even know where to start.
So, I will start with one of the things I showed as a WIP in my last post.
I was working on this Hinzeit piece called Washday.
While stitching it I remembered this fat quarter with clothes pins in my stash.
With the finished piece and the fabric in hand, I made a project bag.
It is made by creating a bag with the fabric which has been backed with batting. The bag is made just the slightest bit larger than a regular zipper top project bag you can buy at cross stitch shops. There was nothing scientific about the layout. I just created something that was pleasing to look at using what fabric I had and my finished piece.
When making the bag, leave the top unfinished and large enough to fold over. Hand stitch at the fold line to the zipper.
I ran around the edge on the sewing machine just to give it a finished look.
Easy Peasy. Just don't forget that you can't iron your finished bag because of the plastic project bag.
