This week I have ticked two things off my project list, although they were just quick projects.
The first was a little owl bag from anapaulaoli on Etsy. This was a birthday present for a friend's little girl who was three.
This was a lovely project, if not a bit hairy when I put the zip in the back, but this was down to my sewing skills, not the easy-to-follow pattern. A quick and simple make that was happily received!
The second project is a Christmas present for my niece, this is a pattern called Caity Cat designed by super-talented The Green Dragonfly. Check out the other bright and colourful free patterns on her blog as they are all gorgeous. On the pattern there are lovely crocheted flowers on Caity's stripey body, but due to time restraints (it was late, my eyes were closing and I was determined to finish!) I embroidered some flowers instead.
Both projects this week have been fun to do and easy patterns to follow. Its nice to see quick results sometimes isn't it?
I am going now........... off to do some more Christmas craft with the boys for the school fayre where they will be selling things that they have made. The fayre is in three weeks time so I think we are going to have to be very efficient!
I will share some of their things when they have some finished (hopefully soon!) in the meantime let the glittering begin!
Looking forward to seeing what you've all been up to later.........hope you've all had successful weeks as well. To catch up on other Year of Projects work.......check out the group page on Ravelry.
