Jeans Bag

Oh the fascination of repurposing old jeans. Here is a bag  I made from a pic I saw on pinterest. Mine turned out a bit different. I like the shape of the original better. And next time I will make an inside bag. Nonetheless this is a cute littler shopper for the smaller errands or book bag it is sturdy.

Journal Cover

I use A5 books a lot for writing and take them to work. So I finally made a cover

here is the tutorial

A little sack

The instruction for this simple sack intrigued me. It can be used as gift pouch. Two squares are sewn together, two lines from each corner sewn and a cord pulled through. Finished. Doesn't it look lovely?

Wall Hanging

From the visit to Val D'argent September 2016 I brought back Moda fabric and a pattern of XOXOX which I decided to change around a bit. I added a charm pack that I had for a while. The hubby and I decided on three panels and I opted for the disappearing 9-patch looking for a tone in tone effect. As always patchwork looks much better when you can see and touch it than on a foot. This is only a smartphone photo. But over all we both like it quite a bit.  The rods were custom made by a local artist.
