The Project that Tested Me?

Let’s start off this post with the one photo I have of this thing…

This is called the Trifle Tumbler. The sewing pattern is by Sara Lawson at Sew Sweetness. It’s part of her Minikins Season 1 collection of pouches and small bags. The Trifle Tumbler is available in 3 sizes, but my patience at the time only managed to make the two larger sizes. This particular one tested my skills in sewing along curves and using binding.

I may have gained experience working with circles, zippers, and binding, but the most important lesson I learned here is that your project is limited to the size of your sewing machine’s bed.

The fabric is another (shorter) story. I was in line for the fabric table at Walmart, when I saw the person before me was buying this fabric. It caught my eye coz it was a cute “Hawaii” themed design. At the time, I was in a souvenir making frenzy. So I thought this would make a great addition. So a few yards were purchased.

Anyways….I may not make this one again (unless specifically requested). I still have the last size unfinished. We’ll see.

New Menus, New Projects!

The holiday rush is over and I’ve gotten a chance to work on patterns I’ve been hoarding! With this, a new menu sprouted to share with you all projects that go together. Part of my pattern hoarding includes a collection of physical (and sometimes digital) books.

First project I want to share is from a new book Snuggle and Play Crochet by Carolina Guzman Benitez. I’ve already made three out of excitement! You can see the details here. And a preview photo here…

I have lots of books I want to crochet through, so be on the look out!
