I have been working on a variety of things today. Including getting together the things I will be needing for the retreat. I had my list, checked it twice, and still came home without an essential item. Hoping to just pick it up on Friday in London now. Or beg some from a friend. Because I don't want to go back to the quilt shop. Really, I don't.
I can show you one of my accomplishments though. I made a pouch for Danny, who can be found over at Mommy for Reals. She has been asking for help in making zippy pouches and draw string bags for children in care in America. If you think you have a half hour to spare and some fabric then I am sure she would appreciate the help. I made a pouch for a girl. The request is for a simple pouch. She would like them to be as much the same as possible so that all the girls feel they have received an equal gift. I hope one of them likes flamingos!
|The pouch needs to be 7" x 9".|
One fabric for the outside, and one for the interior.
|My zip ends behaved. Yay!|
|I hope someone finds this bright, cheery and fun.|
So that will be posted off to Danny tomorrow. With luck she will soon have 40 pouches and 40 draw string bags.
