Craft bag

After a cold, dull and breezy morning the sun is now shinning here in Sheffield and things to seem to be warming up a little. Yesterday I spent most of the day sewing. I finished off a craft bag that I started a couple of weeks ago. I have used 6 different patterned fabrics in checks, spots and flowers.

The base is 10" square x 15" tall, so really big and roomy with lots of deep pockets all the way round the outside to hold lots of stuff.

I have quilted the main bag, base and handle and lined all the pockets to strenghthen them.

Hello to my new followers, I hope you enjoy your visit.

I did manage to get round a few blogs on Saturday night and leave a few comments, unfortunately it was short lived as blogger was acting up again yesterday and would not let me comment on many blogs, don't worry I will be back to have another go later.

Hope you are all having a great relaxing bank holiday weekend and what ever you are doing Enjoy!

Happy crafting, love hugs Lynne xx

Craft Buckets

Today was patchwork class in the studio. While the ladies were busy cutting out squares and sewing patchwork blocks Julie and I were making craft buckets. The first one is very basic

the second one has lots of deep pockets for craft tools, pens, pencils etc

just love this funky cat fabric.

We still have a few places left on next Saturday's all day card making class.
Email sales@craftden.co.uk for more information.

Have a great bank holiday weekend.

Down in the jungle...

A few months ago I decide to make a quilt for my then expected Grandson. I bought all the fabric, wadding etc, as he is now over six weeks old and growing fast I thought I better get cracking. The fabric I bought had blocks of jungle animals on.

I have cut the blocks from the panel and sewn strips of contrasting fabric around the blocks and then shashed the blocks together with a second contrasting colour.

All layered up ready for quilting, so thats what I will be doing this and making the cot bumper.

What ever you are doing this weekend enjoy and lets hope the rain holds off.

Happy Crafting love and hugs Lynne xox

Flying duck craft buckets...

Good morning all my crafting blogging friends. I thought I would try and blog again this morning, so fingers crossed.

A few pictures from our craft bucket sewing class

Don't they all look fabulous lined up, waiting to be filled with crafting goodies? I have put cottons in mine, they our very roomy and hold lots.

Thank you for your lovely emails about not being able to leave comments and also wondering where I was and why I have not been blogging, its nice to know I have been missed.

Happy crafting love and hugs Lynne xoxo
