I hope you're managing to stay cool?
I'm literally about to combust.
If you're from generally hotter climes
we're in the midst of a heatwave here in the UK
I'm sure you're wondering what all the fuss is about
but for us it is HOT HOT HOT!
I wanted to share with you my second Sew-a-long make
(If you're wondering what this 'Sew-a-long' I speak of is ..... please click HERE)
Simple Zipper Patchwork Pouch
I made mine into a First aid pouch
the one I currently use is pretty horrid
a freebie zipper bag. Nasty.
I shall be proud to use my handmade pretty patchy one
whipping it out at any first aid opportunity!
This, believe it or not, was the first time I had inserted a zip into a pouch
not quite sure how I've managed to avoid those scary things up till now
but I had.
It wasn't plain sailing
I should have got an acrylic zip instead of a funky metal one
the thing actually ate two sewing machine needles
anyway that's a lesson learned.
I need more practice.
There'll be plenty more zips in my future
I am DETERMINED to get over my zip phobia. For good.
..... anyone need a plaster?
I've closed my shops for a while
they'll re~open the later end of July
lot's going on here
exciting things .....
my best friend and her family are visiting from Australia
(Oh. Em. Geeeee!)
I also have a holiday coming up soon!
