I have finally arrived in the sewing room and along with digging up lots of "I'm going to use that someday" stuff (now to go to the Goodwill - with lots more to find yet!) I have started sewing again. YEAH ! But have I re-started my Canada 150 Facebook quilt-along ? Noooo, and I'm 93 blocks behind ! YIKES ! No, I did some mending for my niece and my sister and did some sewing for Wellspring, my sewing group's charity. Wellspring is a cancer charity, and they have a craft booth which helps support them. We make all kinds of fabric items and I was once again asked to co-ordinate our group's donations to their booth.
So, I made this lunch bag. I used a cupcake version of it when I was still at work and really appreciated it. The lunch bag is roomier than it looks and I'm happy to have finally made use of this terrific cutlery fabric. I have another one cut out and may get to it today. The pattern tutorial is from Pink Penquin and is well written. This pattern would also make a fabulous sewing bag - with different fabrics of course ;).
HAPPY CANADA DAY
