Last week, our pastor and his wife invited my family to dinner. As it was a last minute invitation, I was not prepared with a gift. So I decided to sew up something quick, a crazy patch mug rug for my pastor and his wife each. I have a lot of scraps which came in handy. After a few hours, I managed to come up with following:
Pastor’s wife put it to use on her dining table. The setting looks so romantic. 🙂
Upon the request of Pastor’s wife, I stitched up a parking coupon wallet so that she could keep her parking coupons safely. Again using scraps and practice quilt sandwiches.
The last photo above showed that the parking coupon wallet is a little too short. Oh dear.
Update: I sewed another parking coupon wallet. This time a gigantic one. It should fit the parking coupons now. 🙂 I use crazy patch style to sew the partition within the wallet.
I have been watching Youtube videos and decided to sew a rag bag using this video.
I wanted a bag with zipper so with the help of this video, I came up with the recess zipper. 🙂
I also added a pocket in the lining of the bag.
After I finished, my husband commented that it looks ‘unfinished’. I carried it to church on Sunday and my youngest son asked why I was carrying a bag that was not completed. 😦
Pastor’s wife was very encouraging. She said discerning women will like my bag. LOL.
This week I am back to sewing string blocks for Charlotte’s Baskets, the long overdue quilt for my daughter.
