Kid Sewing Week turned out well! I always finish less than what I intend to sew, and some things got pushed aside for other things (little things like, oh, a business to run, and teaching an online course that wraps up in a few days). Quilts and curtains were not finished, but they have at least been cut or the designs were finalized. Not pictured: a belt for a jacket made last year, crayon roll for a birthday party, and lots of mending. Tell me what you think in the comments.
Curtain, at least started
Birthday Gift--Knitting Needle Case (outside)
Knitting Needle Case (interior, still a work in progress; note the side zippered pouch for tiny things like stitch markers. You can see I have next to no needles since I can barely knit a scarf. But I hope to take some of these to an upcoming Fiber Festival and will be asking friends who knit beautifully to test the pouch first.)
Wallet--new product coming summer or fall
Ever get something stuck in your head and you can't work on anything else until you figure it out? I've had this floating around in my head since at least October. I didn't like the early versions, tried several patterns by other people, even sold a few, but still wasn't happy with it. This week I had an idea that I just *HAD* to try out. This, I think, is finally it. I like it. In fact, this one is now my very own. Slots for cards, a zippered compartment for coins, a magnetic snap flap. I like it. Have I menioned that??
Here's the outside.
Thanks for taking a tour with me. I feel pretty good about everything that I was able to make, in addition to everything else going on around here. If you'll excuse me, I have some fabric to put away to get ready for this week's projects!
