WIP Wednesday, 6/15/22

Not much to show this week. Although I did sew the bindings on four quilts, so that is a bit of an accomplishment.

Charlotte wanted to learn to crochet and has mastered the basics. So of  course that called for a cute bag to carry her supplies and crochet hook.

Berene of Happy Sew Lucky just designed a series of blocks called Yarn Junkie, which include balls and skeins of yarn, knitting needles and crochet hooks. I had some scraps of Essex linen and some canvas from the Purl line by Ruby Star Society that were definitely destined to be together. For the balls of yarn I used solids and some cross stitch fabric by Alison Glass. Berene had posted a bag she made so I basically copied it--she was kind enough to give me the rough dimensions.

A "live a colorful life" label (of course) and "worth the effort" by Kylie and the Machine.
An inside pocket for crochet hooks. I sewed a selvage in the pocket that says "Purl" and "I love yarn" but you can't really see it very well. 
And the cutest zipper pull, also by Ruby Star Society.

It was a fun project and I hope she keeps going with crochet.

I just finished Block 13 of Moda Blockheads 4, Evening Delight, posted by Debbie Maddy of  Tiori Designs. If it looks familiar, that's because it is an Ohio Star block, one of my favorites.

That's it for this week.

Sewing on 4 bindings is quite a lot of progress! And what a nice crochet bag; you clearly put a lot of thought and personalization into all the details.

Charlotte is certainly going to be the envy of the crochet crowd with that bag. Those balls of yarn were just perfect!

FOUR bindings!!!! That's a huge accomplishment. Are you taking on outside work? I have a few that need binding. Great bag too. Perfect fabric.

Very cute bag--your sewing is so pristine and perfect!
I thought you were going to comment on that OTHER Ohio Star debacle, but no. Yours is lovely!
