Happy New Year!
Well, after saying no more TGIFF for me, while the changeover process is going on, I got a few small projects finished and offered to do this Friday’s TGIFF…
The Jimmy Bag #2
A couple of years ago, mum asked if I could make her a bag for walking the dog. The stipulations: there had to be enough room for flipflops when taking the dog to the beach, and pockets for dog treats and poo bags and so forth…. Hence the Jimmy bag was born.
Her last Jimmy bag has faded and almost fallen apart – it gets two good walks a day in the Australian sun, and knowing my mother, probably gets washed three times a week… So it was definitely time for a replacement.
The front is a super large pocket using a panel with pictures of African ladies on. It’s gorgeous fabric – I’ve had it for ages – and I haven’t used it up until now.
I appliqued another panel on the back. Inside, we have the double zip pocket for keys etc.
My pattern for the Jimmy bag is here.
The Pooch Pouch
I used a couple of box-pouch tutorials to make the Pooch Pouch – so much fun. I haven’t made one of these before. The fabric is a Kokka canvas I picked up in Japan.
I love it. Wasn’t expecting too but that fabric does make a difference. I’ve given it away to a dog-lover in the neighbourhood. I think I need a trip back to Japan for more of this fabric!
The Bernina Box
My final finish for the week was the superquick Bernina blog box… Full post and link to the tutorial here.
So that’s what I’ve been up to! What finishes do you have so far in 2017? Please remember to link back here or to TGIFF. There’s also a schedule up on the TGIFF blog if you’d like to host this year.
