I am feeling quite positive about the Christmas making these days. What seemed insurmountable at the beginning of last week is starting to look more doable by the day. I have four more items to make after the two shown here. None of which have to be posted. Yay!
First up is a sneak peek of an item I have been making for someone who reads this blog. And also to show you that I have managed to do my first concealed zip. Not sure if I did it the 'right' way, but I think it looks good and that bright blue zip - the only one I had long enough - doesn't clash with the pink this way. Honestly, if it was for me I would have slapped that bright blue zip on there and let it show because we all know I like my colour, but I wasn't sure the recipient would feel the same way.
Then I made another tote. It is for my MIL, who most definitely does not read this blog, as she doesn't have a computer. So safe to show.
She once told me her favourite colour was green, so I pulled the green strips of Bliss from the Moda scrap bag, added in a couple of red, and teamed it with Kona navy. Deciding that it looked a little too humdrum like that, I broke out the red thread to give it a boost. I like the contrast. I hope my MIL does too.
