Working in a school means that I get school holidays off with the kids. This is great for us as a family as we don't have to worry about childcare, but sometimes personally frustrating as I only have time off with them. However this week they have been busy making a Doctor Who episode (I helped make sets and costumes and they then filmed and added special effects). This left me free to play.
This started off as a play on my new sewing machine with some shiny Gutterman threads. I had some grey essex linen and I thought the threads would show up well (which they do in real life just not in my photo!)
I used the various satin stitch options and came up with this freehand peacock feather.
Having seen lots of 3 zip pouches on blogland I decided to have a go myself,
My local market provided the zips which (almost) match and I found some (almost) matching fabrics to make the pouch linings.
(The purple and blue are Oakshott as they are my LQS - lucky me!)
The boxed bottom means that I can fill all 3 pockets (they all reach the bottom).
Now all I have to do is decide what to use it for - any ideas??
