Not being one to procrastinate... because if I do, nothing ever gets done till the last minute or late, because I totally forget about it.
I found the pattern on Craftsy.com The tote is called No Guts Boxy Pouch (click on the name link to get to the pattern) Over all the instructions were clear, but there were a few places were pictures and instructions didn't line up and where instructions weren't clear or missing. I still managed to finish it!
(This is my first boxy pouch!)
I live in a rural town in Ontario Canada, which has Scottish roots and hosts Scottish Festival and Highland Games every year! So I dropped by the local Scottish shop and picked up some goodies there as well as a local Chocolate Shop!! Yum
It is ready for the mail tomorrow!! Well ahead of the Aug 23, 2013 mailing deadline!! : )
I also have a few more letters done for the back of my nephew's Wave quilt!! No one has attempted a guess at what the 2 words could be?? Here's a clue.... it has something to do with food.
That card is so great. Love the stitching. I work with a Scottish lady and she would love to get her hands on those goodies.ReplyDelete
Thanks!! Been meaning to try making block cards, so this got my butt in gear!! And it is sad to say, I had never been in the Scottish store till now!! I thought being as my town has Scottish roots and hosts one of the largest clan gathering Highland Games outside of Scotland, I should send some of those treats to my southern neighbor!! Hope she likes them!! And now I know and will be back, for more goodies myself!! The store was full of good stuff!!ReplyDelete
Oh I think the pouch looks so sweet! I bet your partner will be thrilled!ReplyDelete
Nope I've got no guesses on the word yet but your paper piecing looks fab!
Thanks, I really like your patterns!! They are straight forward, easy to follow, and look great!! and I love that you can change the size!! I cant wait to get some of my projects done so I can dive into the retro patterns!!Delete
And will have more letters next week, maybe than you will have a guess!!
Who would have thought you had Highland Games in your town? I am jealous. I love to watch the dancing - even had a some lessons myself. You are way ahead with the pouch swap.ReplyDelete
Lessons, that sounds interesting!! And great exercise, I would think!!ReplyDelete
I can't help myself, it feels so good to stay on top of things!! And if I don't, I'm usually scrambling at the end!!
I haven't figured out the two words yet... I'll have to wait and see more letters I think.ReplyDelete
I can not love your sweets bag more! I'll repeat my flickr comment (or paraphrase it anyway) and say that I'm sure the recipient is going to love it! And that card... WOW!! Love it so much! What a great way to mix paper crafting and quilting!
Thanks Christine!! You are always such an encouragement to me!! i get a little worried when I'm sewing for someone else that they will be disappointed!! Thanks!!Delete
I was happy with the card too!!
Oh, I love your pouch¡¡¡ I am just starting mine, I was lucky too to be in the swap¡¡¡ReplyDelete
Thanks Teresa!! It was fun making the pouch (only my second one!!) and just as much fun finding the goodies!!Delete
