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.
