The sewing calendar 2010 project

First of all, sorry for the delay. I should have finished and posted this project yesterday. My son was sick this week-end, so I didn’t have much time for sewing …

I knew from the first look that this project would be hard but great. I was right ! It was challenging for me but I looooooove the result. I was expecting a bigger bag, but otherwise it’s even better than in y dreams 🙂 Go check Ayumi’s blog : it’s fantastic ! I think I will try some other tutorials!

I didn’t have any cord so I used a ribbon, and it works perfectly fine. If I ever get some cord, I might replace my ribbon with it, but looks OK the way it is. I used 8 different fabrics for the outside patchwork, another one for the top part, and a plain orange one for the lining.

Here are the pictures, tell me what you think !

Preparation :



And result !
the result ! the result !


One month already! So far so good I guess …

For the ones who own the calendar, you know exactly what I will show you next, but for most of my readers (do I have many readers?) I think it’s every time a surprise.

As you probably already figured out, there are projects due on Wednesdays and Sundays, every week.  The last project for January will be a Tin Can Cover. Then, February projects will begin. As you can imagine, lots of them will be about Valentine ‘s day !

Here is what I will create next month:
– Matyroshka Doll Pocket Pillow
– Simple Pillowcase
– Tea towel Apron (sonsporized by Kris, a friend !)
– Heartfelt Quilt Card
– Heart Window Mobile
– Patchwork Drawstring bag
– Pacifier Pouch
– Tooth Fairy Pillow

I think that the most challenging ones will be the Mobile and the Patchwork bag.
