I'm finally almost over that dreadful cold I've had - other than a bit of a chesty cough I'm pretty much over it. It hung around for over 2 weeks, and I had to cancel a Keg dinner out with friends ... TWICE!!!
Thanks to my lovely sons bringing me home dead measuring tapes from work, I've been able to whip up some of these snappy "mtape" bags for Blue Hills. I recently tried boxing the bottoms, and now I think I have the sizing right for that. Cute little bags! There are tutorials here and here for those of you that would like to whip some of these up :) The original design, I believe, is the Snap Happy Bag by Stitchin' Sisters :)
Here's my first finish for the Pretty in Patchwork sewalong from Threadbias - I'll be making 1 or 2 more bags in a similar theme and will post when finished. The original project is pillows with inset paper pieced blocks - I decided that zipper bags would be more suitable for me :D This bag measures 10w x 10t x 3.5d :) Love the photobombing penguin, LOL!!!
