W.I.P. Wednesday: Legos, Sewing, Knitting and a Handbag Pattern1/16/2013 01:22:00 PM
It's been a busy few days of WAITING for my fabric orders to arrive so I can get my handbag patterns, January Block of the Month(s), and other little mini projects started.
I'm glad to be finally at it though, most of my fabric arrived in the mail this week. Yay!
What I'm working on:
I filled some time waiting with Lego, after seeing the cute sewing machine Carrie from Such Designs did, I just had to make a mini Pfaff so after asking my son if I could borrow some legos, I made this little cutie. My son was so thrilled, and loved our little lego session so much, that I have to think of other little projects to make so we can have some more of that lego bonding time.

Knitting! It's been a while since I've done any knitting, but my daughter wanted to knit together and wanted me to show her a how... Yay! I bought some beautiful Italian wool at our local wool store and started working on a scarf and hat set for myself. I am finding upon returning to Canada, I have not nearly enough scarves and hats, so this is a perfect knitting project for me - nice and small. We had our little knitting session, but was a little impressed/disappointed that I couldn't help her knit much because she had already be taught by youtube! She's using circular needles for the first time and didn't know how to do that, so I was able to show her that at least. I like to spin in circles....
|Hmm... the colour is brighter in person. Must take better photos!|
Handbag Patterns! I have three on the go, but you'll have to wait for the sneak peak photos - I am not ready, but I'm focusing on one with piped handles, detachable strap, and cute little bag feet first and I'm thrilled with how it's turning out. Stay tuned!
Thanks for reading. Remember to take time to play with Legos, so fun!
