Friday is such a fun blogging day, with "Frugal Friday" at Biblical Womanhood (see previous post) and "Sew Crafty Friday" at http://w8ng4him.blogspot.com/ There's such a wealth of talent and brains out there.
Here's my crafty thing of the week. It's a tote bag. This pink-on-brown print caught my eye, and there was barely a yard on the bolt. But I had to have it, LOL! I decided to make a bag out of it, using some beige poplin I already had.
I'm sorry that I don't have the link to this tutorial. I deleted it from my sewing file after I made the bag. It's supposed to have a little strap closure with a button on the front. I'm planning on using this for library books, mostly, so I skipped the closure. But if it looks familiar to you, please lmk and I'll give credit where it is due!
I've been doing a lot of sewing this week. I cut out 2 tops for the spring, both in blue fabric. One is a peasant top and one is a tunic. I can sew them both with the same color thread, so I've been progressing there.
I'm also progressing with the dress I designed. That has been a learning experience for me...next time I adapt a pattern meant for a woven into a knit bodice, I'll use a smaller size. I had to take in very large darts to get this to fit me right, but I'm getting there! And the skirt fits great--I plan to use that pattern (which I did make 100% from scratch) for some springy skirts.
So, what have you in your craft room today??????
