This week was all about little makes. Those fun quick finishes!
First I use up some patchwork from another project to make a Secret Pocket Envelope Clutch, teamed with Wild Goose with black spots, Just A Speck by Jen Kingwell.
I used a couple of my new Kam snaps and I love how cute they look! Very easy to install with the huge pliers they came with.
I top stitched the bag and quilted the outer panel with 50 weight Aurifil #2566, a lovely soft purple.
This is finish #3 from my fal list ✓
Next up I asked my Instagram friends to recommend a way to use lace zips, I had a couple of zips stashed away and wanted to use them. This is the Exposed Lace Zipper Pouch tutorial by Fort Worth Fabric Studio, recommended by Veronique.
It was super quick to make and really simple!
The outer fabric is Cottagely Posy, Priory Square by Katy Jones and the lining is Geometric Calico, Franklin by Denyse Schmidt.
The only thing I didn't like in the tutorial was the inner seams, my machine's zig zag isn't that great so I decided to make French seams instead. I simply stitched the sides of the bag on the outside, turned it inside out and stitched the sides with a bigger seam. It worked really well, you still see the ends of the zip on the inside but I think it's neat.
Finally this week I made a little something for myself! Very little...
I used the smallest size of the Secret Pocket Envelope Clutch pattern to make a business card holder and it's so cute!
(sorry I took the pictures so fast, before that air erasable pen dot went away!)
I used some precious Karen Lewis Textiles scraps in my favourite prints and colours. I asked on my Instagram what colour snap to use: yellow, light pink or hot pink. The resounding choice was hot pink and that works nicely since this is the back:
So that's another check off my fal list ✓
I'm doing pretty well checking off all the little things! One more clutch bag to make and maybe then I can move on to some quilts?!
Happy Friday 13th and I wish you all a wonderful weekend :)
