I was feeling very quilty deprived so yesterday to get my feet back into the game I made a Lola Pouch, made with the pattern by Svetlana/s.o.t.a.k handmade
OK so I actually made 2. I had a bundle of 5 fat quarters from JoAnns that I have been hoarding for awhile now. I used 4 of them.
I believe that after making these 2 I have enough scraps from the 4 fats to make at least one more.
Looking at these pictures I can see that I was in a real frenzy about making something. I really need to press much better before I start to sew.
Anyway what I loved about these pouches is the recessed zipper and the bound edges.
The way the zippers are sewn in you get a really wide mouth to the pouch.
I also finished the top for the quilt I've been procrastinating over. Pulled some fabrics for the backing so I might get it sandwiched this weekend. Where have I heard that before.
For those dog lovers out there here are a few more pictures of the latest member of our family.
It took no time at all for her to find the sofa.
She has a very sad face. We are working on making her smile a bit more.
They played hard and crashed. I know they are really tired in this photo because they were on the floor and not on a piece of nicely padded furniture.
That's more like it.
We've had her to the vet for a meet and greet. She came with heavy duty medical issues. Her immune system is a wreck and she is resistant to most antibiotics. She seems to be doing very well at the moment and we hope to keep her that way. She's had a very tough life in her not quite 2 years. We are hoping being in a stable environment with her sister (they are litter mates) will keep her on track. Wish us well.
