Hello. The weather is rather warm today, assisted admirably by my internal furnace. Does anyone else have an furnace working overtime? I'll move on to other more pleasant things like making bags to organise my suitcase for next years holiday. I started my bag making frenzy in this post
where I made a bag with a zipper to put my smalls in. Since then I made a laundry bag, some shoe bags, a bag for delicate clothing, (i.e. where the fabric pulls on anything) and a bag for my socks.
It's a simple drawstring bag and I applied HeatnBond iron-on vinyl to waterproof the fabric. Letty suggested I use oilcloth but I couldn't find any in a fabric I liked. The fabric was easy to sew with the vinyl ironed on.
|This shoebag was also made with HeatnBond applied to the fabric.|
|There's enough room in this shoe bag for my thongs (flip flops) and jiffy slippers.|
|Bag for delicates.|
|The blue and mauve bag on top is for my socks.|
While I was out having acupuncture yesterday, Genevieve took these photos of Sophie our labrador and the chooks sunning themselves together.
Interesting animal companions!
Well I'm off to do some housework type things like cleaning windows and folding up clothes. Have a great weekend. We are off to help celebrate my brother-in-law's 60th birthday tomorrow.
