So now it is Week #4 of the Sew can she Its A New Year Sew Along
and I've been busy (still) prepping for Kids Clothes Week which starts Monday.
I'm done with the Make Something! step for Sew Can She sew along.
I decided to do a tote bag with the sewing
(red and kona bone) log cabins.
I am going to use this as my library bag.
I read...A LOT and I could really use a bag
to keep them in so I don't misplace one.
I used some scraps to make the bag lining and the straps.
I also used some non-fusible heavyweight interfacing I had left over from the musketeer hat I made A LONG time ago.
Who doesn't love a scrap-tastic project?
The second thing I made was pillow with the other set of logs I did.
On the back of the pillow (I apologize no photo) I did a invisible zip in the center of it.
At some point a spot cleaning the pillow just ain't gonna get it done, ya know.
So being able to remove it was a must in my opinion.
I used this FANTASTIC foot-the Invisible Zipper Foot.
I got mine off Amazon DIRT cheap even with shipping.
Totally worth it.
I just can't figure out why in the world did I struggle
for so long installing a zip with out one???
Anyhow on to the reveal!
