New Bags

At last! the last bit of my K.Mart Christmas Wishing Tree gift package has arrived, emery boards. Now i know just the size i need to make my gift/makeup bags. First one done, 23 to go! The bags will be green on the outside and lined with the red.

Make Up Bag Re-Makes

This is the fabric and zips i will be using today to re do the K.Mart Wishing Tree make up bags. The ones i made before were too small! but not to worry, i will be putting them aside for next year.
Tilli!!! Not easy sewing with cats, especially when they want to help.

Pincushion Chair

At our last meeting of the year next month at our cloth doll club ACDA we are having a pin cushion swap. I have decided to make a chair, the cushions being the pincushion part. I have used felt for padding.
all parts cut out and covered. The upper seat has been windowed out to allow pins to be pushed in and the seat instead of fiberfilled is having foam cut to size.
The chair is assembled and bias binding is about to be added all around the edges. I will be crocheting a doily to go over the back which will hold a surprise, a needle book.
This is the book i got the inspiration from.
I have also made 10 of these for boys toys for the K Mart Wishing Tree this year.
