In The Sewing Room Today

 Tilli was sleeping.
 Today I have been busy preparing fabrics for Aussie Hero Laundry bags. Cutting up sheets and quilt covers. I enjoyed making sets of 4 linings, covers and cord top edges. I have enough here to make up 7 sets of 4 bags, should keep me busy for a while.
This is the remainders, they will be sewn and put aside for when I get some more fabric to make up sets. But first I have to knit up some cord.

School Couches

 I had our Crafternoon day on Saturday and saw these photos for the first time.
 The large pictures in different coloured felt have been ironed onto the couches.
 I think they did a great job of following my instructions.
 they look great.
Two very different styles of drawings used in this project. I hope to see one more of them from the front, they have the wildest fur fabric on the seats. The giant floor pillows look great too with their alphabet letters on one side and the plain on the other. Can you spot the Once Upon a Time chair in the middle background? The library was a fun project to do.

Christmas Table Runners Continued.

 Gold braid has been measured and I have enough to go around all the 5 runners. This is the style I have chosen. 5 motifs per runner, a bauble, a wreath and a tree. The bauble is the centre. They are just placed for the moment, when they are ready to be attached they will be in measured distances.
