Previous Makes

Just thought I'd show you some of the things I've made in the past - I didn't realise quite how many things I'd done until I started looking round.

On the bed is a fleece blanket which I made by cutting up 2 small fleeces (they're never big enough for a double bad are they?!) then making a patchwork blanket by sewing them all back together again. I had to lay them all out on the floor, jigsaw style, then pin and stitch them. Looks good on the bed.

These next 3 pictures are a wooden sewing box I made about 12 years ago. I made the box then covered the outside with wadding and fabric, then made the padded inside lid. Hubby made the plastic tray that sits in the inside.

I had a peg bag that was bought in a charity shop until it fell to pieces. I made this out of some fabric from a quilt cover (bought in the sale because I liked the pattern) and the old wooden coat hanger that was in the old peg bag. I then stitched some ribbon around the opening to (hopefully) stop the fraying. I was really pleased with this.
