Oh and a bit of art too!
I have been trying to catch up with all the things I have completed recently and - I admit - there has been an awful lot of crochet blankets (in fact I have one more finished but I won't post about that one today).
But just to show that I have had the sewing machine out recently ...
here are my latest batch of drawstring washbags
using the fantastic pattern by Jeni Baker who blogs at In Color Order
I love this pattern and find that once you've figured out the layout of the fabrics you're away!
It makes a lovely lined drawstring washbag.
You may see a bit of a theme here with some of the fabrics! I bought a fat quarter pack from Hobbycraft. I loved the bright jewel colours and the pattern and thought they would make superb washbags.
I also knew that I had fabrics at home that would co-ordinate with them.
Which colour-way is your favourite? I love the jade green myself.
Then I decided to go for a bright pink and lime green mix. Nice and summery, and pretty too.
Oh and a cow one too! I think this one has the look of old-fashioned country cottage about it.
So ... who needs a new washbag ....?
