First of all, I knocked off another nearly insane block, #21For fabric Friday, I'm showing the most expensive and special fabrics I'm hoarding. All of these except the red and yellow are American folk art. The one on the bottom right is a French border fabric, I love it but it's rather firm in texture.I had fun making up a couple of things from the show last week. I got a pouch pattern from Studio Mio which was very simple and quick to whip up. I like to make my bag patterns on freezer paper so that I can iron it to the fabric then cut around, easy peasy.
Here it is and I shamelessly copied the fabric idea from Jean who made one as a giveaway that Cathy was lucky to win. I don't miss much, lol.
Love the spring strip in the top, a squeeze opens it.
I got to use a snippet of my Aunty Cookie fabric and made this bucket from a free tutorial that Jodie from Ric Rac has on her blog. It was a quick thing to make also and is a decent size, 6" in diameter.
I couldn't resist this photo doing the rounds in email. Swine flu has got closer to home.
