List? What List?

I'm fairly sure  I know there is a loooong list of sewing projects that I could be working on, but when I was sorting through charm squares for the Sweet Sixteen Scrappy Swap I found a load of texty charms from a swap a few years ago.

I cut them into 2.5" squares, and used some of the fabrics in the 16 blocks, but there were a lot that really 'wanted' to be used together, but not enough for a quilt.  I started joining them randomly then did some unsewing and joined them in a pattern.

And found myself making a fabric basket!!!

 No idea what I'm going to use it for, but I rather like it!

There were a few blocks left over (I wouldn't want to *plan* and make the required number of blocks would I?) and I'd found a purse frame that I hadn't used at Jackie's back in the spring, so I had a go at that too.  Actually *reading* the instructions make a big difference and it's worked out quite well - just needs hand sewing* tonight to be an actual finish!

(* the instructions say to glue and crimp, but I haven't got any suitable glue)


  1. Both are just beautiful.Happy sewing!

  2. I love these texty fabrics! These are both beautiful makes. Are you sewing in your frame or just crimping. I'd be interested to know how secure it is without glue because I'm hoping to try this and I don't know what UK glue would be suitable...

  3. 2 more great makes, I too have some clasps so must search for them and try and make a purse as yours has inspired me
