I knew I would leave it until the last minute to do this post,
in fact I'm a day late!
But I did make these gadget sleeves right at the beginning of the month,
A pretty floral notepad sleeve, the fabric was a new tea towel I bought in town
and the blue one is a laptop sleeve - the fabric from Ikea.
The lining is the same in both - a vintage chintz with a little ditsy print.
I like the contrasting zips and fabric pulls.
I made these for me - though they might appear in my empty Folksy shop or my
website Pretty Goods
You may think this is a bit measly for a monthly make -
there are some gorgeous things on the Flickr group
but making is what 'I do' - all the time. Nearly everyday!
I have commissions for curtains, blinds, loose covers, headboards,
cushions, and even for covering bedside tables in fabric!
This is me, in action....
....all photographed ready to write a tutorial for making interlined curtains
with handworked pleated headings.
Watch this space
for the tutorial in the near future.
Better get sewing!! (and writing)
