It was good I had already drawn an image for the SOC-painting, that way I just had to colour it in. Which was still enough work, mind you. But I got it ready! I'm a bit fanatic that way: when I have intended to do something I just keep going until it's done. Even if I have to skip meals and sleeptime ....
Here it is, another doodle, this week in different shades of lime green and purple.
And I finished 4 pouches from leftover fabrics and painted fabrics, the ones I showed in this post.
The first one was a pouch for my phone, and it was a testcase. I used some tutorials from Terri Stegmiller 's blog. She makes the most amazing things and has a load of free tutorials on her blog. So generous of her. After I finished my testcase, I started on a phonepouch for my niece, who just turned 15.
and backside. I used a lot of stamps on there as well.
Tried some freeform stitching, but my machine is a real basic one and doesn't have a special freeform-foot. Which made it a bit hard, and I only tried it out on my pouch. Afraid to mess up the other ones....
After I finished the 2 phone-pouches, I decided to make a small shoulderbag for my niece. After all, what's a teenage girl without a bright shoulderbag, right?
might make one of these for myself ....
And then I was on a roll, and decided to make a toiletbag for my sister.
and some detail:
And why was I in such a rush to get it ready? Because they're right now on a plane to Brisbane from Belgium! My sister is visiting us with her family, it's the first time they will be in Australia. They will be staying with us for a week, before travelling up north. At the end of their holidays they fly back to Brisbane and will be here for another 4 or 5 days. So looking forward to it!
So I won't be writing on this blog the next week. Too busy catching up, showing the sights, enjoying their company. I might be back next Friday, but not sure yet. We'll see how it goes.
I'm linking this to Summer of Color and Paint Party Friday. Lots and lots of lovely links to find there, check a few out if you have the time, it's worth it.
Thanks so much for visiting and leaving your wonderful comments! Hope your Friday and weekend will be lovely and sweet .... ♥ ♥ ♥
