Can you believe it, I actually got some small projects completed in September. Nothing major, but happy to have had some sewing time. Some of my time was spent cleaning and just looking for fabric.
** I want to make some Luggage Tags, so I experimented with two patterns I found on the Internet. The first one wasn’t bad, and features a hidden pocket for your id and included a buttonhole. You can get the free pattern on Ms Elaineous Teaches Sewing Blog.
** I played with the second pattern, but wasn’t happy with it. There were some features I liked, so I reworked it a bit and was pleased with the result. I plan on making more of this tag, and hope to write up a Tutorial to post.
** My companion for the past 2 weeks and some of this month is a walker. I could (and did) add a return address sticker to avoid getting it confused with walkers that belong to others. But I wanted something useful. So, in addition to one of the luggage tags, I made a matching Diddy Bag & Small Tissue Holder.
The Diddy Bag Pattern was found here, but I made some modifications. I love pockets to organize things in any tote bag. First I added an interior pocket the size of a credit card or business card to hold my id. Second, I added an interior pocket, similar to the front exterior pocket, but I divided it into 3 – one for a pen, and the other two for a small notebook and the tissues, plus I added a clip to hold a Key or something. Finally, I added a pony tail band & button to create a closure.
Most of my October Goals are Physical Therapy related. Exercising my new knee will take up a lot of my time, but I do hope to have some sewing time. Along with my OMG I shared here, I hope to work on a few other projects.
** Work on Luggage Tag Tutorial while making several.
** Stitch up 3 more Shelter Pet Beds
** Kit up cut fabric for placemats
Well, I’d better get my knee moving. Hope you are getting some stitching time this weekend.
Happy Stitching & Moving!
