January.... Tick!


So nice to finally get back into the sewing after all the chaos of Christmas! I love the idea of making small projects each month and this months project was perfect. I'm off to Melbourne on Wednesday and a new shoe bag was the perfect thing to start off with. I've made the blue one for my sister in law (who I will be visiting and who is always traveling herself) and the pale green one for me!
I just love Anni Downs quirky pictures and these wonky shoes were a lot of fun to applique. 
Yay! I've got a finish! I'm still keen to make the thread catcher this month too...just have to wait for my book to arrive! 
I'm enjoying seeing everyones thread catchers and shoe bags!
Have a great day!
Teresa
