Today I sewed up this quick little zip bag, a request from my mum who needed a new bag to hold her scrabble tiles. She takes her scrabble board on holiday and plays a lot, so she requested a bag with a zip to keep the tiles safe and protected.

(She doesn't play junior scrabble but those were the nearest tiles I had to hand in our house!)

I used Maze in Grass, Glow by Amy Butler for the outside and a pretty grey leaf print for the inside.

I didn't do zip ends so it has some funky diagonal corners going on at the top but I'm ok with that and it kind of works with the pattern of the fabric.

I also made a start on another Secret Pocket Envelope Clutch, they are so fun to make and I'm doing all the different sizes.
This time I'm making it all out of patchwork, using a mini origami pack of Retro 30's Child Smile by Lecien that I got from Sunny Day Supply. The cuteness of these prints combined with the heart Kam snap is bringing me joy!

Last night I was productive too, finally piecing the backing for my rose star quilt. I'm using Oakshott cotton. This colour is Coral from the Jewel Collection, which I purchased with the intention of using it as backing for this quilt way back in 2012. Maybe I will actually baste it soon?! That bit is my least favourite now and probably partially why I have so many quilt tops sitting waiting.

Let's hope my productivity and enthusiasm continue all week!
