TGIFF creatures

Welcome to TGIFF!

Hosting TGIFF has motivated me and I have a finish to share. My girl is calling it "friend". She was sick and stayed home. To be honest with you it was a hard cooperation :) I don't know how others do it but I prefer to work on my own.

I showed her some pics on Pinterest for inspiration. I really liked those with one eye but she did not. I visited few pages and probably found the source. They are called Hohos and you can check them out for yourself here. Anyway I made this one to suits her requests and to use up my stash and scraps.

And she was happy with it. She already slept with her new friend. The trouble is, I have two girls. When you make something for one you can be sure the other one will want it as well.

She draw a little sketch and I tried. I used old tights for both of these creatures.

It is not the Hoho I wanted to create either so I had to make one more...

Just a little one but finally the type I wanted :) Great project for scraps or old clothes. Get inspired by this tut and make one too.

Here is our trio!

Now it's time for you to link up your latest finishes! Don't forget to tour the other finishes and spread the comment love! Please include a link and/or button for TGIFF! If you would like to host the linky party yourself check out the TGIFF web, there are still some dates available!

In order to motivate myself to finish things and to blog more this year I decided to sign up for hosting TGIFF.

This Friday January 19th is my turn!
Will I finish few paper tins covers?

I have partially sewed up green, yellow and orange squares.

Or will I finish this creature? We'll see.
If you have a finish please come back and link up with TGIFF once the link is open.
Have a great week everyone!

2018 FAL Q1 list

Time to make the list for Q1. Here is mine:

Some projects are new. Some are pretty old.

I started paper tin covers. I made one as trial and pretty much love it.

Prairie point pouches are my current OMG goal.

I precut some fabrics and vinyl in December. Time to finish those vinyl pouches.

Pig cushion to be finished.

Echino bag in progress.

And ongoing project love wall hanging.

Love mini

One more finish from my FAL Q4 list is this mini. That makes it 2/5.

Plus my sewing space got some updates. I did go through my drawers but more sorting is required.

I made decision to have no visible binding on front side. I left overlapping fabric to create binding at the back.

I have no idea what this technique is called.

I used local pearl cotton which I have in many color shades. It is called Perlovka.

I'm not sure if my binding method was good idea and I'm little pissed that the embroidery is not well centered. You know those doubts when you finish something.

For those curious souls it ended up 6x9".

OMG - 01

New Year, new goals and plans to be set up.
I have participated in OMG goals last year and I would like to continue with it.
I find it hard to pick just one goal each month with many ufos and wips in my drawers. Therefore I choose to try out new too me tutorial from the web: PRAIRIE POINT POUCH TUTORIAL

Choosing fabrics might be complicated task too. I have passed quite easily though. I went with some on top and found matching zippers too! Remember, matching zipper is the key factor :)

These fabrics are called Nordika and I have them in my stash for a while. It's time to put them in use. I used some of them on my 241 tote. Choose your goal and join in the fun.
