My sewing machine is home from the hospital (Yes) and we’ve (my Bernina and me of course) finished the doll quilt:
And the baby quilt is done too:
Now to move on to other projects.
I came upon a tutorial and decided the Little Japanese Bag project was perfect for small Christmas gifts. Here’s how they look finished:
Don’t they look sweet? They are even sweeter filled with foil wrapped chocolate treats!
I used my handy dandy trusty tri-tool ruler to cut pairs of triangles. Next time, I won’t be so lazy…I’ll make a large triangle template. This size is cute, but it is small (which is a fine size for an ornament, party favor, or just that “little something extra”).
Cut pairs of triangles (right sides together):
Pairs are sewn, turned and pressed:
Petal points turned and pinned:
One seam sewn (the left is the petal seam…the bottom is the side seam…stop at the petal seam):
All side seams sewn:
Turned…they are lookin’ like bags now:
Isn’t this just the cutest little mini pouch?
See? I told you these are small! And so cute!
These would look terrific in any fabric…think Halloween or a birthday or any other occasion.
