Sewing Corner

It is time I updated what has been happening in the sewing corner.

Completed the May and June projects over at HMFMay was a small zippered (Sweet Pea) pouch, well that caused lots of angst for us, me included, take a long zipper, remove one side and put the slide back in place (easy peasy, yeh right), a few inappropriate words were said.

I used a square from this fabric, which was cut in half cornerwise, making outer and inner pieces for pouch.

The finished pouch, not perfect but good enough.
June's project no zip involved was much easier, especially if you follow the instructions, which was not my strong area.  The mitt had many Unique Design Features, not my term just borrowing it.
Spot the errors mitt.
For my ever expanding wardrobe I made this raglan sleeve top from my op shop fabric.  Fits well and I am very pleased how it looks when wearing it. 

These postcards and card are from my swap partner, I  really enjoyed  looking through the brochures I received.


  1. I really like your top Deb and it also looks very comfortable.
    Even though sewing is definitely not a strong point for me at all I do remember textiles at school. I actually found the cutting out of the patterns etc. really relaxing. We just won't discuss the finished products.

  2. Deb, I didn't even attempt the pouch as it looked too difficult for me. The swap was a great success I must say and everyone could join in as it didn't require any skills. Just up my alley. LOL!

  3. I love the fabric you used for the pouch. Both projects look perfect.

  4. All the projects looks great. The pouch is so cute and it will be useful. I need to learn to make those. The top is very cute! Wonder from where the post cards came. Great post! Thanks for sharing!

  5. You accomplished so much! I am impressed. I've been wanting to try to make a zipper bag.
    Be blessed!
