I went to my first workshop the other day at a lovely sewing shop not far from me called Beecrafty. The workshop was to make a quilters notebook. I've only been sewing about a year, I did sew at school but that was rather a long time ago LOL! So I was rather apprehensive as I've never done proper quilting before. It was great fun, next stop an inky workshop me thinks.
This is called crazy patchwork and basically you cut out random pieces of fabric and keep sewing. There is space inside for an A6 notebook, it has a pen holder and three small pockets and places for storing bits and bobs.
This one is a traditional log cabin design and I loved making them, apart from the dreaded bias binding! They have a magnetic snap closure and are quite sturdy. I'm in the middle of making another for when my sister comes over from the States for a visit this month. I can see me making a few more for gifts. Fancy a more vintage styled one.
Craft corner is still a no go area so I'm having a sewing spurt at the moment instead.
Have a lovely day and enjoy the weekend.
Take care and Happy Crafting xx
