Tote supplies.

I thought I'd bombard you with yet more piccies of the tote bag I made AND provide the details of where I got some of the supplies from because I just know you want to make the bag too!

Less choc more play at Easter

Not wanting to set the example of over-indulging at Easter, I like to make something for the kiddies to play with to take their mind off chocolate.

I had me an idea.

So I've been thinking about what I make, what I can sew and who I can make things for.  The list of things I can make is never-ending. The list of what I can sew, well, it's currently limited but I'm learning. The list of who I can make things for is short.
...then as I lay in bed one night (not sleeping), I had me an idea.
I'm going to make my Mum a quilt.

Ta daa: a soft squishy baby knit

Another knit but for a different baby!  I decided to dye the yarn myself and use this to see if the colourway was a 'go' ...and yes, I think it is - do you like the yarn?

Tinker Tote

Here I am, sitting here staring at this bag. It is awesome and I made it!  Yes, a super proud Ta daa blog post from me!

The pattern was supplied via this Craftsy class. The class was awesome! I sat down with a cup of tea, watched the it and totally enjoyed it, the instructor is very inspiring.
I then sewed & sewed & sewed!
I LOVE it!  In fact, I'm thinking of making another with longer handles to go over the pram.
I found the skills that I learned in this class will be skills that I can use in all of my other sewing projects. I can now confidently choose colours, cut, sew, quilt as you go, add zippers, attach clasps and ...bind!  Yep, all the most essential skills that you can have if you want to sew!  I totally recommend it, even if it just for the confidence that you gain from the making it.
Have you made this bag?  Will you make this bag? Maybe we should have a bag-along!

Ta daa... oops, here's my Doodler!

I'm totally guilty of finishing a project then tossing it aside before photographing. Totally guilty.
