Well, the entire family has been hit by some kind of stomach bug. That is my excuse for not finishing at least one of my knitting WIP's, since they are both pretty close to completion. Of course, I always find the finishing off the hardest part, so I tend to slow down anyway. I haven't done any knitting in the last few days, you would think I would be in withdrawals by now! At any rate, I've got a few other crafty things I've been up to.
First, I followed the sewing tutorial at 7 Layers Studio to make a purse pouch. I love quick easy projects, it makes me feel like I've accomplished something great in a short amount of time. My favorite! This bag was really fun, and I think it turned out cute.
The thin ribbon is pulled through the wider ribbon and acts as the drawstring for the bag. She is a clever lady!!!!!!!!!!
In an idea world I would have had thicker ribbon to work with. Next time I'll make sure I've stocked up first, but the thin stuff does the job at least.
Next up, I've got a little plaque I made at pottery class. I've got only one class left, sigh. I've enjoyed it quite a bit. This heart was originally going to be for my daughters, but it did NOT turn out as pink as I intended. It seems I've had hit and miss luck with the paint colours, as lots of them end up an entirely different colour once they've been fired. To me it looks a bit "shabby chic" and I let the girls pick out the ribbon. Then we stuck on a bit of vinyl I had from a Whoopdwhoop swap I did with Ginger Snaps. It turned out cute!
And very lastly, here one more of my ceramics. I call the bowl my pie crust bowl, because I can't do a smooth straight edge so I just crimp. Next week I should have my yarn bowl to share!!
