Apparently I have the Will Smith song “Getting’ Jiggy Wit It” stuck in my head (Or was he The Fresh Prince then?). So, pardon the silly post title. But, I have made a few drawstring bags….
I wanted to make a couple of bags for my kids in which to gift them the little “Love Note Garlands” I made them for Valentine’s Day. Even kids appreciate good packaging! Speaking of…how about that gorgeous ribbon from The Netherlands?! I’ve been eager to use it, and just couldn’t find the right project until now.
Jeni has a free tutorial on her blog, but I honestly do recommend the pattern itself. Takes all of the math out of it for you if you plan on adjusting the size. She takes it from like tiny jewelry pouch size all of the way to laundry bag! And it is a ridiculously fast project, with a nice wow factor.
Since Valentine’s I’ve had a myriad of projects to work on and contemplate. I’ve been plugging away at my Pow-Wow Quilt (the top is almost complete). I also finalized my plans for the wall-hanging I posted about a while back and ultimately decided to ditch all of the color schemes and go with this:
I was choosing a color scheme for a challenge for our Guild’s 2014 show (which will be in October), and my wonderful pals and I came up with this (with another orange and a lovely blue as well which I don’t own):
YUM! Leslie said it reminds her of candy. What’s better than candy?!
Oh, and I finished quilting my Stitch That Stash quilt, FINALLY! I was about 10 minutes from having it done for months and it just sat there, for absolutely no reason whatsoever. I’m attempting to get the binding on…but this little one
stole it borrowed it while she watched “Frozen.” Which I predict we’ll be watching every day for quite some time.
