Finished by Friday -10



Welcome to "Finished by Friday".

At the end of the year I looked back through my diary where I listed all the things that I had made in 2012.
I was going to list them for you but I didn't want you to get bored!!!
Suffice it to say.... I had a busy year. Most of the things I made were given as gifts - knitted shrugs and hoodies, tiny frocks and slippers, dressing up outfits etc. I made loads of "dumfed" pictures and collages - some went as Christmas gifts and I sold a few.
The items that I sold helped pay for postage for the 400+ dresses Annie and I made for the "Dress a girl around the world" scheme. I still have a few left to post to Louise at Sew Scrumptious - the total she has sent off to Africa is over 2000 now!!!

So this week I have been focusing on Valentine's Day and I have made a few items for the blog shop.
We have a January sale over there at the moment so check it out if you would like to pick up a bargain!!

These are my offerings for this week...

I made fabric covers for a Windsor & Newton A6 Heavyweight case bound sketch book.
This one has a white felt cover with a pretty little embellished front.
I love the random combination of lace, beads, buttons and hand stitching


This one has a red velour cover embellished with linen, silk and lace bits and bobs.

The little linen zip pouches have pretty little hearts to match the print fabric lining.
I think they will make lovely little Valentine's goodie bags.
 
 



They will be in the blog shop after Monday so look out for our new Valentine's shelf.

Thanks for popping in to have a look at my "makes" and thanks for all your lovely comments.
See you next week.
x Jo

I love the delicate femininity of the pale pinks and lace and then I see the vibrant reds and love those too! I just spied red poppy material in the little zippered 'makeup' bag and am thinking oh yes!! Will be back to see when they go on the shelf!!
