The first one is quite big but will be perfect for holding my toothbrush etc
if we ever *when* we get away for a break.
Nice stripey lining.
This other one was just a "let's see what happens if I do this" kind of pouch. I was delighted that it turned out at all and to have it be something useful was really pleasing.
Just a plain blue lining inside this one.
I had a notion to make some star blocks so I got out my squared paper - once a Maths teacher, always a Maths teacher! - and worked out some sizes. I sewed things together and this is what I ended up with. Not an original design be any means but I was especially chuffed that my wizardry with Pythagoras' theorem is still in my head! :oD
I made another one.
And then another one.
What? Wait. What happened there?
Out came the seam ripper and I sewed it all back together the right way this time!
Then I wondered what would happen if I reversed the colours.
Oh my goodness. I love them!
I have quite a few bits cut out to make more stars - both with coloured stars and white stars - so I'm going to keep going with them until Miss Mojo returns.
This is my only embroidery this week. Again, my fingers are there for scale.
Yes, no matter what people say, Christmas is coming! :oD
