This next batch aren't for sale. I made these pinnies way back in 2010 and, at that time, I made them double-sided. See here for the post where I unveiled them. I never liked them with the double layer of fabric, though, as the fabrics never sat properly together. One side would lie flat and the other side would be all crunched up as if there was a different amount of fabric on that side. Weird!
Anyway, I decided to take them apart so, instead of 4 double-layered pinnies, I now would have 8 single-layered ones. It took a while to cut them apart, overlock them, hem them and add new tapes on but they're now all just waiting for the hand-sewing of the waist ties.
The eagle-eyed amongst you might notice that there aren't actually 8 pinnies in that pile - there are only 7. Why? Well, one of the sides of one of them looked like this:
Can't see what's wrong with it? Try this close up.
When I noticed it, I laughed out loud. I wonder how I didn't notice that when I made them? How daft can you get? :oD
My next project is kind of a make-it-up-as-I-go-along type thing. I've admired lots of blocks, quilts and table runners made using this broken herringbone block but, to be honest, I just couldn't be bothered doing all that "cutting, sewing together, cutting apart repeat until done". So I just cut some strips from some Christmas fabrics and laid them on my table in a pleasing combination and will sew them together like that, trim, quilt and bind and see how it works out.
Sometimes winging it is a cool thing to do! Let's just hope it works! :o)
