Sewing... Live Animals.... FIRE!!!!
|Four of the Easter Bags are finished :)|
|I figured since the bags were for Easter, I should include the Easter bunny :)|
|This is our bunny, Fatty, aka- Big Fat White Bunny|
|He's not great at posing :(|
|Fat Fat is a New Zealand White|
|"Is this my good side?"|
|He is an albino.|
|He is blind.|
|"I think this might be my best side!"|
|One more of the cute bags.|
|Fatty McFat Fat is about the size of a large cat.|
Now for the FIRE!!! In honor of our neighbors retirement, we had a BBQ and a bon fire. The men got a little out of hand and decided to burn the boxes that my hubby's new grill came it. It made BIG flames, 12-15 feet high ;D
PS- I have a good chunk of another of the Easter Bags finished. I need about 40 minutes to finish it. I ran out of pellon, so before I can start on the very last one, I am going to have to run to the store in the morning so I can pound these bad boys out Monday morning. I am planning on getting the top sewn for the Stars of the Barnyard Quilt tomorrow. I am thinking I should be able to baste and quilt the Stars & Cherry quilts Tuesday-thursday. I'd really like to make a zippered makeup bag next week too.
I am linking this post up with Confessions of a Fabric Addict WHOOP WhOOP!!
and Crazy Mom Quilts finish it up Friday!!!
PPS- To make these bags, I sort of used a tutorial I found on line.. I posted the link the first time I got the brilliant idea to make these bad boys for Easter. I'll look for it..... and here it is, http://www.sweetfloweret.com/2011/02/tutorial-boy-messenger-bag.html She did a GREAT job with this tutorial. I ended up making tons of modifications, but her pattern is a perfect place to start! I have made bags forever, so I used her basic measurements for the first one I made and then modified the next five to my needs. The strap measurement on her tutorial is for a small child. It is barely long enough for my kindergartner. I would have made his strap at least 38-40". I ended up making 52" straps for my big girls. They are perfect for our 5'11" daughter and me, 5'9".
