Jeg fant igjen symaskinen! / I found my sewing machine!
This summer my sewing room more or less became a space for extra blankets and storage. At the end of last week, I started the cleaning process. And after a while I found again my beloved sewing machine! :) Happy reunion ! The first thing I started to sew was a bag I have promised as a prize to a bazaar. It was perhaps the reason I got started to a clear up no. Once again it was one of my favorite patterns from Annaka, Byveska this time. Yesterday I was around town here and tried to get the string to the bag, but the pattern is probably too old, because no one had these strings anymore. Remember when the pattern was new the thick strings was only called for "those strings that are used in Byveska". So when I came home I had to order in a web store. I ordered at Polar Quilt, and such a quick service! When I collected the mail this morning the package was already there! I can't believe that the package has managed to come from Bodø to Sarpsborg from yesterday afternoon. Must surely give the mail service a bit of credit too.
Men jeg stoppet ikke der - det neste ble grytekluter med oransje gresskar. Oransje er månedens farge i Projos fargealong. De kan jo passe bra til høstbruk. Mønsteret til dem er egentlig en quilteblokk i en høstquilt fra en Quiltekalender jeg fikk for noen år siden.
But I did not stop there - the next project was potholders with orange pumpkins. Orange is the color of the month in Projos color along. They can be great for autumn use. The pattern of them is actually a block in a fall quilt from a Quilt calendar I got a few years ago.
Så sydde jeg en ny pose til å ha plastposer i, den er sydd i samme stoffet som gardinene på kjøkkenet.
Then I made a new bag to have plastic bags in, it is made in the same fabric as the curtains in the kitchen.
Stitchers' Angel Sewing Bag, men nå sydde jeg den bare i stoff uten broderi. Jeg synes det er så grei størrelse på den så jeg bruker grunnmønsteret.
And finally I made a new knitting bag. The model is made by Abyquilt's pattern Stitchers 'Angel Sewing Bag, but I made it just in fabric without embroidery. I think it has such nice size so I use the basic pattern.
