A few years ago my sister started following along with blogs and making zakka accessories, that is, small, useful items using natural materials. She came across this tutorial from the Etsy Blog for a zakka pincushion, and she passed the knowledge down to me. This is a very easy project, and I really like the result. Here is mine:
Once again, these are very easy to make and are great as gifts for your sewing buddies. For the plastic liner, I used a milk jug, and instead of wool felt, I used cotton batting. If you decide to make one, let me know!
Thanks for reading,
Yes! It is finished! If you recall, it was back in January when I started this, so it took a good half year from start to finish.
Fairy Zipper Pouch
Quilting Close Up
I’ve decided now that I will give it to my sister for her birthday, which is in September.
Three days ago, I went to a concert in Toledo, OH, which is about an hour or so away. The weather was really bad going there and back, but fortunately the storm didn’t touch Toledo. After I got back and the storm stopped, the sun came out and everything was beautiful. I decided to look out the window, and there it was! A double Rainbow!!!
How blessed I am to have seen it! 🙂 I hope this inspires you somehow, as it has inspired me in remembering God’s love for us and his promise to never flood the earth again, with the rainbow as the sign of His covenant. (Gen 9: 11-17)
God bless you!
This is a twin quilt I started in spring of 2012. I finished it in late summer last year. 🙂
Rainbow Streamers Quilt
I started this quilt back in 2010, while I was still learning to sew. I finally finished it at the beginning of May!
“Old Patchwork” Quilt
As my first post this summer, I would like to bring to you a quilt I started in June. Yay! For several months, I was finding pieces of fabrics featuring ducks on the free table at my sewing guild meetings. I picked them up, not sure exactly what I was going to do, but as always I had quilts on the mind. 😉
Here are a few of them:
