For ages I have been keeping a few little wire noodle-box handles with the aim of creating a fabric box for them. This was easy easy. I had a cardboard noodle box here so I just chopped it up to become the pattern. I used some hammer- in eyelets on the sides for the handles.
It kinda falls into the cute but useless category- or at least I haven't thought of a use for it yet. To give it structure I used wadding (batting) as well as a firm iron-on interfacing. I carefully ironed the interfacing to the batting rather than the fabric (less wrinkles that way).
I have also been spending a little quality time with Mr Gocco and made some teeny tiny designs on fabric. It is still a bit of a hit-and-miss affair but I think I am slowly getting the hang of it.
I have also started my first ever real sized quilt. How do you people make quilts.... it takes for bloody ever!!! I might still be doing this one when I am ninety !!! I didn't want to do anything complicated so just decided to wing it and make it up as I went along. (what was I thinking) .
If today was anything to go by it is a good thing I have the men-in-white-coats on speed-dial.
