Whilst waiting for my fabric to arrive I managed to finish another couple of Christmas wall hangings which I have now listed here.
|Mary and Joseph and Baby Jesus|
|The Three Kings|
I have three more to list (two of which are still work in progress).
I also finished my linen bag and boxed off the bottom of it.
I used gold thread to lightly quilt the exterior of the pouch/bag, and used the red and gold fabric to line it. Managed to line up my label and machine stitched it in. I love red and gold. Each of the red, gold etc squares in the measure 1.5" (including seam allowance) and once sewn together end up being 1" square, I love miniature squares like this.
It is the first time I used linen. I really like the look and feel of the linen and plan on using it in a scrappy mug swap challenge that I entered recently. Glutton for deadlines eh! I read on another blog about how to sew with linen so I will be taking that on board for the mug rug. A mug rug is what it says, basically a little rug for your mug, a fabric coaster, love 'em.
EDIT: SOLD MY LINEN BAG TODAY, REALLY CHUFFED!!
