The capri sun tote bag for my 17 year old daughter is complete and she couldn't be more pleased!
It is made completely to her specifications - 4 foil bags wide by 3 tall.
Nice sturdy zipper to close it with.
For some reason, I just love the inside of this bag!
From the side. I placed the foil bags on the side, to give a little bit more width to the bag. They do not quite go all the way to the top, but T is fine with that.
For some reason, blogger decided to put my photos up not in the order I designated so sorry if this post appears a bit disjointed. I did not finish sewing together the squares for this blanket. I started them but ran out of time.
My new start for February as soon as I get it on the loom.
This is the warp for my new scarf. It measures 3 feet and there are 122 ends. The scarf will have fringe, 4 inches of even weave followed by a row of leno lace and then several rows of danish medallions and another row of leno lace. The center of the scarf will be a twill and the other end of the scarf will match this first end. WHEW!! I hope it all works out. This will be the first time I have figured out the whole thing from start to end - the math for the warp, the design, the colors - everything.
These are the squares. I only got a few of them sewn together, but at least I worked on them!
This loom I had hoped to tune-up in preparation to get it warped. I would like to make a table cloth for our table and this one is wide enough to make a piece of fabric that will not need to be pieced.
This is the yarn that I have chosen to crochet my sewn squares together with. I love the lime green!
Here is a WIP that has been languishing around for literally years and years. It is call Summer Breeze Bag (I think) and it was part of a KAL in a Yahoo Group I had been in. All I need to do is sew it together - I am thinking to use something to make the sides a bit sturdier, so will be experimenting this month.
I did not complete my goals for January:
Make up one mug rug: No
Sew squares for quilt: I did get a few of them done
Tune-up floor loom: No
Warp table loom with own scarf design: I did design the scarf and measure the warp
Finish Capri Sun Tote for oldest daughter: YES!!!
New goals for February:
