The P&C at school was having a fundraising raffle for Mother's Day, so I made a few things to donate for that, and I also made something for my Mum, and something for my Nan.
First I made some fabric buckets. I stuck with fabric I had lots of and didn't mind losing because there was no guarantee they were going to be won by people who were going to appreciate them. I didn't want to waste anything too good so Ikea fabric it was. And that stripey denim I was given for free after somebody gave my brother a big bolt of it!
michael miller fabrics (that link goes directly to the pdf file of the tutorial). I seem to recall I made a boo boo with the handles, but we won't mention that. And the two smaller ones were based on this lovely tutorial from pippijoe.
And then I thought I'd make some keyfobs. I did a bunch of googling and decided this tutorial at u create looked the best. I didn't worry about buying proper clips for them though, just used some D rings and split rings I had already.
This was the first one that I made.. which I liked so much I promptly put on my own keys and then showed all my friends and told them how fobulous I was (and I'm still totally fobulous in case you're wondering)
And these are the ones I donated for the raffle. I had to use some of my nicer fabrics for these because there was only a limited selection of ribbon of the right width in my ribbon tin and I had to try to match it.
Next up is the present I made for my own Mother. She told me she wanted some kind of handbag organiser so after much hunting around for a free tutorial and not finding anything I liked, I ended up buying this pattern from You Can Make This.
And then there's this cushion I made for my Grandmother. She probably didn't need it, but I've fancied making a cushion with a name on for ages so she got one!
And that was that!
I've made a bunch of other stuff in the last few months but I seem to have neglected to take photos before I gave things away again. Oops.
