April 11,13,14,15 – Toiletries Bags

Apr 11Apr 11B

 

Today (and for the next few days, except Friday), I’m giving away these toiletries bags.  I know it’s kind of cheating to do this.  I’m not really cleaning out my junk with these, and I’m doing four days all at once, and they are all the same object but I’m really stuck for time today and I’m going away for the weekend and won’t be able to post anything until I’m back.  I will do a TIFF program tomorrow but that’s it until Tuesday.

I made these, it’s part of my make your gifts pledge, and re-learning to sew adventure, that I posted about Tuesday.  In order from top to bottom, these have gone to my sister, my mom, a friend (mother of the Tuesday recipients), another friend (who also got the syrup jug).  I got the fabric on sale at The Workroom and Fabricland.  The ones I posted Tuesday were a little funkier, I know, but I’m dependent on what’s in the sale piles.  I don’t want to pay full price until I know what I’m doing.

Have a good weekend, I hope this weather doesn’t follow you or me.

 

 

April 9 – Makeup bags

Apr 9 A Apr 9 B

Today I am giving away these makeup bags.  I made them for the daughters of a friend of mine.  I have to confess I’m a closet crafter and I’m re-learning how to sew in my free time.  I had a wicked and evil home economics teacher in Junior High.  She was bitter and mean in so many ways but she knew what she was doing with a sewing machine so I and all of my sisters have some competence.  Her techniques have come flooding back these many decades later. I’ve been trying to make all my presents this year so to that end, I bought this fun fabric half price at The Workroom and Fabricland and have been playing with small scale projects.  I made others, I’ll post them later this week.

There are almost no fabric stores left in Toronto, if you like to sew, go buy fabric and support the few who are left.  It’s really not the same online, no hand and the colour is wacky.
