She brought this for the tree.
It is quite big so I will have to place it carefully.
It was Fran,s birthday on Thursday, she had requested a cup cake for tea.
Chocolate cake, chocolate ganache and maltesers. The ice cream was meant to cut through the sweetness but in fact it was sickly sweet. Luckily my neighbour has a sweet tooth and a passion for ice cream. The cake is very good though, moist and rich, only 6" across so not too much to force down.
I made her cushion yesterday after she had chosen the fabrics.
I have had this little chap for a few weeks now, just forgot to share.
Today started with a little sun but turned to rain in moments, just as I opened the door to take Ben out.
I was pootling through blogland and found a zippered pouch tutorial so had a go. 3 pouches from 2 fat quarters.
I am pleased with them, they will go as a little extra in gifts.
The lining is a pale print left over from something, a bit too light for the project, but it just about works.
I have a pile of fat quarters so will be running a few of these up.
I have to persuade Ben that it is okay to go out in the rain, he never used to worry about the weather but like me (and most of you) he has had enough of it.
Lucky gift recipient. I am trying to do sone purging and organizing in my daughrers room and those bags would be lovely.ReplyDelete
There are now 2 for gifting, Fran has claimed 1 and asked for a fabric bowl to match.Delete
They are beautiful bags, a wonderful little gift. It has rained all day here as wellReplyDelete
I did manage to walk Ben in the dry, we were almost back when it started again.Delete
Pretty please, where did you find the tutorial? I have some fabric and inherited some zips, I would like to give the girls a demo on something similar.ReplyDelete
I found it on didyoumakethat.com on bloglovin, I have made several versions of zipper pouches and this was very easy and uses so little fabric.Delete
What pretty material you have used (inside and out). I hope you have your snorkel ready for walking Ben on Monday and Tuesday as apparently it is time for The Deluge Mark II . . .ReplyDelete
Oh, I was not aware that The Deluge Mark 1 had finished yet, or are they to run consecutively. I have wet weather gear but no snorkel, perhaps a diving bell would be a better option.Delete
Love the decorations, love the cake, love the cushions, love it all xReplyDelete
Beautiful little pouches. Fran is a lucky lady .ReplyDelete
Pam, sorry I've missed about three of your posts...but enjoyed catching up. The little bags are so cute. Your sewing is beautiful. I'm afraid the zippers would be too hard to sew in. I also love the pillow!ReplyDelete
I used to shy away from zippers but forced myself to follow a tutorial about 5 times using scrap fabric and reclaimed zips. Now they do not bother me at all.Delete
Black Friday was a fairly quiet event in my neck of the woods too. Lovely fabrics in the cushion and pouches. Wishing the rain would stop to get school uniforms dry.ReplyDelete
I did not spend a single penny on Black Friday. It's a ridiculous thing. It makes me fold my arms and go all huffy!!!ReplyDelete
I love the cushion, I'm pinching the design of the panels for my Christmas cushion I've planned!
