January Finishes

I shared my first thread catcher previously, but had to make a second. The light weight pelon is definitely better for the size shown on the pattern. When I saw these fabrics I thought they would work well together. I’m really happy with how it turned out.


I was happy that the shoe bag was on the project list. I made two of these as Christmas gifts in 2011 and shared here and here. At the time I stated that I should also make one for me, but it hadn’t happened. Now I have one of my own. On all of them I cheated by just putting a single fabric around the top, instead of the patchwork strip.

 
 
So, here is my little collection.
 
 
 
 
I’ve made a small start on February’s project. As you can see, I’ve decided to use blue for the colour. It will be fun making the bag from fabrics in my stash.
 
 
 
Cheers
Janice
