mixing my interests - le challenge


Since I've developed a stationery addiction along with my sewing addiction I thought it appropriate to 'mix' my two loves and create a home for my pens, washi tape, notes and stickers for this months le challenge.


I totally fell for the 'Fly the Flag' quilt by Katy Jones in Issue 2 of Quilt Now magazine. I love that they look like sticky page flags, so I resized them and used some of my favourite Moonlit by Rashida Colman-Hale, Cotton and Steel prints to make little flags and a cute banner.


The background is the most gorgeous mint fabric that I picked up on a trip to Abakhan, I wish I knew what it was!

So now my stationery has a pretty place to live and I can happily decorate my organiser and get my 'to sew' list under control ;)



We would love you to come and join in the link party over at le challenge, it stays open until 8pm BST on 16th October and you can link up any finished project that fits the theme 'MIX', so long as it has been made in the last month.

One random winner will receive a $25 gift certificate to the Fat Quarter Shop!

  11. Sweet storage! Stationery was my first love too--write notes to family every week when I was in college even though email was popular by then.

  13. Love the flag patchwork on your pouch. Something I've never made is a pouch. I don't have much experience with zips.
