Savers in Mill Park has some lovely fabric today I could not pass up. (As with most op shops it can take a while to find what you like, sometimes you find stuff and sometimes not). I think this first one screams Laundry bags to me. This was a double quilt cover.
Another double quilt cover, I am thinking girls dresses and bias binding but I think I might be cheeky and have the kitty panel to make for bags for myself.
I adore the colours on this queen sized sheet, definitely girls dresses.
This is a queen sized doona cover and I am thinking of quilt blocks for this one. I love the neutrals and the reds flowers won't be so obvious once it is cut up.
I love these! Reject shop bunting. Each flag measures 22cms by 30cms. and for $5 there is 20 in a pack, I will undo the white binding re-enforce and stabilize them with iron on interfacing and bias bind them to add to the front of the laundry bags.
I have had a good day shopping today and looking forward to more sewing.
I thought I might share with you today the method I like to work in. This works with all the charity stuff, dresses, laundry bags or soft toys.I like doing the same thing over and over in a crafting spell, this is my method for the laundry bags.
Day 1. I will cut and prepare the fabric and pair them up into inner and outer bags, they are then put into a bag and stores for the sewing day. I will also cut up the fabric casings for them and they are then put into a separate bag.
Day 2 is sewing the inner and outer bags, they are then put into the same bags they came out of.
Day 3 is the finishing day. I will then sew the casing to the bags and fold them up. Because of the fabrics I am using I will end up with very similar bags so when I have 4 or 5 different bags (depending on the weight of the fabric some can have 4 and some can have 5 per package). I then ask for address to post them in.
