One of my main goals for 2010 is to blog here more often. I update the Darkroom Door blog almost daily, but I don't post here as often as I'd like! Let's see if I can do better for 2010!
I've been increasing my fabric stash quite a lot lately... and have also been using it! Hurrah!!! Here's a couple of projects I made in December:
The large brown/blue bag was created from a Friendship Bag tutorial on the PS I Quilt blog. I wanted to create a larger bag so I doubled the size of the material. I had a few hiccups along the way, but in the end it all worked out! I created long straps too so it could go over my shoulder. Initially I didn't know how often I'd use the bag, but I have to say I have used it heaps since December!!!
The smaller pink/green bag was co-created with my friend Simone. Well, she did most of it really! I cut it out and made the insert bit, she did the sewing. So I can't take too much credit for that one. Isn't it gorgeous though!!! I don't know where she got the pattern for that one, but it's a beauty! Simone made about 9 or 10 of them that day in all different fabrics. So cute!
And here's some art book holders I created for the kids:
The tutorial for these can be found here. I gave these to the kids for Christmas and they LOVE them. Quite quick to make too. I didn't take a picture of them when they're open, but on the left side that have 10 slots for pencils, and on the right is the sketchbook.
Hope you are all having a creative start to the year! Wishing you all a fun and happy 2010!
