Welcome to a new blog hop! This time it’s all about sewing quick gifts and the pleasure of gift giving. And even more – we had to sew and send a quick gift to one of the participants. Thank you Madame Samm and Marlene for organizing this blog hop- I can’t believe I already have Christmas gifts and it’s not even the end of November!
Lets’ see first the amazing gifts I received from Bente – She “studied” my blog and wanted to sew for me something that I am not used to sew. And she couldn’t surprise me more!!
I am happy to introduce you to Nisse! It’s the first time I see such doll in person. I adore his sweet face, the golden hair and the cool haircut. The colors and patterns of the fabric fit perfectly to him.
Have you noticed what he brought me? A hexy flower!!
Nisse will have a special place in my home (and heart too) and he will always remind me of a special Danish quilter living in Germany. Thank you, Bente, your attention to details is amazing.
Bente also sent me this little stocking with red embroidery – so beautiful!!
Bente’s gift makes me think more about holidays and the time spent with the loved ones.
I sew with much pleasure a small gift for Judith.
And here is what I sewed last week.
Lace zippers+ faux suede+20 minutes for one pouch!
It is a pleasure to sew faux suede (much easier than sewing faux leather).
It’s heavy enough, it doesn’t need interfacing.
I bought the lace zippers from Etsy; if you need some, search on ebay too. I read somewhere that you could find them at Joann and Hancock Fabrics too.
I think the lace tape of the zipper looks nice on the simple faux suede.
But it fits perfectly to a pretty quilting print too!
I took the time to quilt the fabric…
and now I can’t say which one I love more…
I thought of the cat lovers too!
And here are a few shopping bags. I made these shopping bags for my sisters and a few friends- they were (and still are) a hit! After 5 years they are still in use!
Heavyweight (decorator) fabric +25 minutes to sew for one bag. A little more for one that has a boxed bottom.
No lining, no raw edge exposed, French seams…
and a desire to sew more…
Come back soon to see more!!
Thank you for your visit!
