Often I think I avoid sewing, because I can get myself in quite a tizzy over the whole process! Compared to all the other crafts I partake in, such as knitting and crochet, I find sewing HARD.
However over the last couple of days I've learnt that it is this which can make the results so very rewarding.
I mean I can sew and I'm not bad at it, I just think perhaps I lack the patience that is required of me. I like projects that I can finish quickly and gain instant satisfaction from, anything that takes more than a couple of days tends to get left to one side, hence the fact my craft room is cluttered with half finished blankets!
It is because of this quality I am so so pleased with this....
A quilt! A whole (all be it small) quilt.
Here are some more pictures, because I am after all so very very proud!
It's by no means perfect and I appreciate it is very simple, but I love it and it's very cosy (although I do keep finding pins still hiding in it!).
The red bag is still incomplete as I cannot decide what to put on the front. It also has a super cute lining...
I just keep drawing blanks on this one, so any suggestions would be much appreciated.
Well I'm off to do so more sewing, have a lovely Wednesday.
Did I mention that I made a quilt!!
