A Lay Flat Drawstring Make Up Bag

Today, I am sharing my second sewing project, made from the online
 sewing course with Claire at Beautiful Things Craft and Sewing Classes

I joined the Bronze Online Sewing Course back in July,

with the first project, being a door stop which can be found HERE.
As a member of the club, Claire sends you written instructions, a pattern
and a full video tutorial. Having the video tutorial was so handy, as it meant I

could re-wind it at any point to watch again when needed.

Here is my completed bag...

Like my door stop, it's not 100% perfect, but I am really pleased with how
it has turned out, and will definitely be making another two, as my great niece's 
have put in their requests!
  If you're interested in learning to sew, I really recommend you joining Claire's 
online club, she is a great teacher and has some fabulous projects planned.

All the materials were purchased from Geoff's Remnant Shop, Brentwood, Essex.
I am looking forward to making the last project in the Bronze club, which
is going
to be a sewing machine mat. 

Thank you for visiting my blog today.

My Time to Craft #405 - 'Anything but a Card'

A new challenge starts today over at My Time to Craft
where the theme this fortnight is 'Anything but a Card'

All the details can be found HERE
 Here is my design team project - a quilted box.
I learnt to make one of these on the Beginners Sewing Machine course
 I attended with Claire at Beautiful Things.
The good news is, Claire will soon be running this course online, which is
fabulous news for anyone who is unable to attend the class at her studio.
A tote bag and a zipped cushion cover are the other two projects 
to make on the course.
I made it using half a fat quarter of material, felt and wadding bought
It is 10" square, so I have enough material left over to make another one.

I can see they're going to be addictive to make in all patterns and sizes,
and would make really nice gifts - just as they are or filled with some nice treats.

Thank you for visiting my blog today.
