Hi All :)

Sometime ago I gave you a rough overview on how to make a simple tote bag. Before this I was on TV promoting sewing machines and a booklet that I had created to show how to make five different handbag styles.

I have decided to offer up the digital print-at-home version of that booklet for sale via the shop for £2

Fabric Friday hasn’t been around for a while but I’m pleased to say that I’ve literally been doing nothing else but see for two days … progress at last!!

I therefore thought that it would be nice to remind you (and me) of projects that I need to finish and those that I am about to embark upon.

Hello and welcome to another Fabric Friday. This week I thought that I would try something different and see if anyone would like to take part in a sort of a sew-along with me.

I recently purchased a jelly roll and thought that I would create a simple foundation paper piecing pattern that we can all have a go at – and hopefully I will be able to share my finished piece, along side yours in a future Fabric Friday post.

Hello again, and welcome to another Fabric Friday! :)

Now, you were probably expecting me to be showing you the finished project from last week’s post however, on time honoured tradition, I appear to have been distracted by another technique, lol!

After completing the recent run of Fabric Friday Fat Quarter Fun blog posts I left you with a picture of some of the leftover fabrics.

In a couple of previous posts I have been detailing a few projects that I started using some pretty Fat Quarters that I had picked up at the local market.

I am pleased to say that I have most of the things now finished (but not in the way that I had expected).

Last week I highlighted a few projects that I started using some pretty Fat Quarters that I had picked up at the local market.

My intention was that I would have all of the projects finished this week and that this post would show the triumphant results!

What was meant to be a quiet week has turned into a doozy, and on top of that my head has been particularly random when it comes to making things.

That has meant that this week’s Fabric Friday will therefore be more like Part 1 of a 2 Part special as I didn’t get a single thing finished! :)

Yup, I’ve finally gotten around to it. It’s bag making time!

*races off to the craft room* …

I’ve often seen prairie points in various guises and creations however I’ve never had a go at these.

The notion of mucking about with these little triangles resurfaced when they were briefly demonstrated during a recent show that I worked on at Create and Craft featuring Debbie Johnson and Kim Suleman from Canny Keepsakes/Six Penny Memories.

I mentally noted down the “how to” in my memory bank of makes but it was only in the last day or so that I have managed to get a couple of days to play in the craft room.

So, given that I had the time and the inclination – I thought that I would have a go.
