Tonight was the 1st Friday Night Sew-In of the new year. I'm happy that I got the chance to participate. :) Before I show you what I made, I'd like to tell you about a Stitch-A-Long I joined this year.
It's the same group I made my "My Favorite Things" quilt with last year.
This year we're using these three books to complete different, smaller projects each month.
"Some Kind of Wonderful" by Annie Downs (the book "My Favorite Things" quilt was from), "Tis the Season" by Natalie Bird and "Red Home" by Natalie Bird. These are all awesome books by Australian designers. For January the project comes from the "Red Home" book.
We are making the "Thread Catcher Fabric Basket".
We actually had the choice to make the Fabric Basket or a Shoe Bag from the "Some Kind of Wonderful" book. I made the "Thread Catcher Fabric Basket".
Here's a closer look at my "Thread Catcher Fabric Basket" . . .
I used some fun sewing themed fabric on the outside and pink polka dot on the inside. I also used a decorative stitch at the top in brown thread. As you can tell it got a messed up in the center. Oh well. ;) Here's the other side . . .
Next month we'll be making this "True Friends Tote Bag" from the same book.
I can't wait to sit down and choose the fabrics I'll be using for this. I'm also eager to start on the stitching. Thanks for stopping by and checking out what I did for my Friday Night Sew-In. :)
Until next time . . .
