Peek- A-Boo

Here is a peek into something Iam working on these days. Actually started making these hexgons almost three months ago. But I had other projects going on. These days it is just this throw. I cannot wait to finish it. It might take atleast a week or more for that to happen. But couldn't wait to blog about it.

It has so many colours and is making me really happy. Iam sure it will really brighten up our living room when its done.

Go Green

What Iam going to blog about today has nothing to do with the "Go Green" campaign. But I do support it and feel all of us should do our bit to save the planet. I have two sewing projects to share today, and coincidentally both are green in colour. Hence the title.

First one is an apron. The fabric used was bought far back. Really loved the print and bought it. We needed a new apron so dug the fabic out from my small stash and made this apron. Iam very pleased with how it looks.

I have recycled Pranav's old jeans to make the pockets. Also tried a little Applique work (done by hand).

The second one is a project bag. I very badly needed one and loved a project bag made by a friend in Ravelry. So this bag was sewn with that bag in mind. Just kept cutting pieces and pinning them together till it formed the shape that I wanted and sew it. Have used the same fabric for the lining. And I love how the bag turned out.

I have sewn two buttons together.

There is a small pocket inside for keeping scissors, measuring tape etc..

I did not have any readymade interfacing to make the base strong. So this is what I made with scrap fabric and stitched it to the base below the lining.

Pretty In Pink

Here is a doily made the other day, which was gifted to an Aunt.

The thread I used was thinner than all the threads I have used to date. So that was something new.

My fabric stash is growing

Thought I will share something other than my FO's this time..
Ok this is what I came home with after a recent trip to IKEA and another small fabric shop in Dubai..

And this is what Pranav bought. He doesn't know what to do with them. But its Thomas and Popeye. So he had to buy them. I think I will sew PJs for him( which I will have to learn first).

And this is what hubby dear bought me from his recent trip to Qatar. Three crochet books. He said they were on sale and he got them for almost half the price. Isn't he smart :)) ...
