I bought this laminated fabric at a 'new' quilt shop, it is out of the way for me but we were in town....so we stopped! I am so glad we did! I joined the Shop Hop for the Row by Row quilts and will get out more to collect patterns! I had fun figuring out how to construct this tote so it would be functional and neat at the same time I did us bias tape to cover the seams in the screen area so it wouldn't be scratchy .
I lined it, too, so that made it interesting to figure out the construction but I got it done with only one major ooops! I will use it on Friday when we have a big family outing....more later!
It was raining today when Bill had planned to paint some more outdoor furniture for me so we chose a plan B. My studio light/fan fixture had died so he removed the remains! He did have a bit of a handicap because he had to work around Goliath! (my quilting frame!
I have tried my hand at a bi of different for me knitting. I saw this pattern on Craftsy and decided to try. I was a bit surprised at the size, it is bigger than I expected (10") but it is cuddly and soft and I hope cute and lovely to a little girl. I sewed the face on while I helped Bill.
I am giving the pattern a re-do and doing it my way this time! (I do this with almost every pattern-the first time I try to do it their way and then I tweak it on the subsequent projects!) I am NOT knitting it flat and seaming it. I am knitting in the round. I am ready for the stuffing and once I get the hat done, I think I have a few more ideas to try before I hand it over to my test toddlers on Friday! It is a good knit so far!
