In case you were wondering, I haven’t suffocated under a pile of dogs and cats but have been over to the U.K. for a workshop, some long overdue visits, some successful and not so successful fabric shopping and some fish and chips by the sea. My Mum came back with me for a week so I have been spending some ‘quality’ time with her and have not back into my usual routine – such as it is.
Just to check in, I thought I’d show you those finished sewing boxes I was making even though you will see that I ignored all your advice about which fabric to match with which and stuck with my original plan but at least I asked!
and the birds and sheet music
with the teeny scissors
Did I do wrong??
This lovely toadstool fabric will be the exterior of the my next sewing box as you can see by the progress pic below.
I am photographing all the stages as I complete them because I am thinking of turning it into a photo tutorial along the lines of the tute I have already produced for the small boxes I make.
If I ever get it done, I will be looking for a couple of testers to make sure my instructions make sense. Just let me know in the comments if you like messing with cardboard, glue, fabric and can manage teensy stitches and would like to be considered.
