I realise that it is now Thursday in Western Australia... but just for today, I'm going to pretend that I'm on New York time and link up to Lee's WIP Wednesday. Yay.
SUMMER HOUSE BOXED IN QUILT
First thing I've worked on this week is the much neglected Summer House quilt - now completely pieced! This baby currently measures 72" x 48" but I'm tossing up whether I should add sashing or not. Probably, yes. Realistically this is just going to sit untouched for another few months, though, so until then, here is a sneak peak.
This quilt has been made with a Summer House by Lily Ashbury layer cake and is based on the Boxed In Quilt tutorial. It was actually very simple to put together, I was just lazy and made it drag on and on and on and on. ;)
CLASSY CURVY HANDBAG
Next is something I am excited about and will hopefully have completed very soon. It is the beginning of a new bag - for moi! I've been meaning to update my crusty old thing for months now but haven't got around to it. But, now that my Mum is making noises about me making her a bag I figured I'd better have a trial-run first, just so I didn't completely stuff it up. So...
I absolutely adore that Silent Cinema print so am hoping this comes off as planned. Really, I shouldn't be too worried as the Classy Curvy Handbag pattern I'm using is amazingly detailed (with full colour pics!) and very easy to follow. She'll be right. :)
SLEEPOVER PJ PANTS
Next is a bit of cuteness - some army pj pants for my nephew, to match the Sergeant Sebastian softie I made months and months ago (oops!).
These are mostly finished, just a few little touches here and there to finalise. I used the Sleepover Pajamas pattern by Oliver+S, which was mostly straightforward, though I did have a few issues with the waistband. Thankfully the elastic pulled it all together and managed to hide some of those problems. Now I just have to work out whether I am brave enough to tackle the top too, or whether I'll "cheat" and just add some applique to a pre-bought long sleeve shirt. Hmm. I have to admit that the latter option is definitely appealling! ;)
CIRCLE ZIP EARBUD POUCH
I found these pieces whilst rummaging through a box in my sewing room - all cut and ready for me to make another earbud pouch, as pouch Erin's fabulous tutorial.
The fabric is, of course, from the adorable Prince Charming collection by Tula Pink. I love that frog! I actually prepared these weeks ago but for some reason didn't then take the extra 15 minutes needed to sew it all together. Doh! Oh well, maybe this weekend - after I finish my bag!
That's pretty much it for my week. Not too shabby, really. Before you leave, though, don't forget to check out my "fugly" giveaway - to be drawn next Tuesday. Good luck!
I've made the deadline and have linked into WIP Wednesday over at Freshly Pieced. What a popular party - over 130 people have turned up to show off their works in progress. Go and check them out.
