I have been thinking about a project that might use some of my blue stash, a project that can be picked up whenever and worked on and that can wait happily for when the mood strikes. No pressure sewing just how I like it.
These baskets were an internet trend project a few years ago and you know me I eventually catch up with the band wagon once it has come and gone.
They will be a handy little project.
I have prepared a dozen blocks so far.
I do like it but annoyingly my 9 patch ended up a 1/4 inch smaller than my basket background block.
I cut the backgrounds 6 1/2 inch and the 9 patch blocks use 2 1/2 inch blocks. Might need to check out my 1/4 inch seam. It seems I'm off to a false start already.
I have been playing around with some zipper pouches too. The finished one can't be shown at the moment but I thought it would be good to make a couple more to reinforce the method of making them.
I am not using a pattern so it grows as I go along.
Love this little applique and seeing that I don't need another pincushion thought it might make a nice applique for the pouch.
Can it be friday tomorrow? Pleeeeeeeeeeeeaaaaaaaaaaase?
Have a great rest of the week...
