Welcome to finish it up Friday!
Plenty of Pincushions, Volume 2.)
Mark Twain quilt. It's pretty exciting to see the pile growing! I have a low-key goal to make 5 blocks a month, so I'm about a week ahead of schedule. (I'm rarely ahead of schedule on ANYTHING, so I'll celebrate that miniscule victory. Ha!) I have been enjoying hand stitching so much!
here.) This version is extra large...it measures about 18" x 20"! I was happy to discover that it was very easy to upsize the pattern. (I have a post about sewing with vinyl and shortening zippers here, that you might find helpful.)
If you have the Work In Progress Bag pattern and would like to make an 18" x 20" bag, here are the measurements you will need:
Use a 16" zipper.
Cut 1 piece of vinyl 2 1/2" x 18"
Cut 1 piece of vinyl 17" x 18".
Cut 1 piece of vinyl 18" x 20".
Cut 2 pieces of fabric 2" x 18" for the zipper casings
Cut 2 (or 3?) strips of fabric 2 1/4" x WOF for the binding
Zipper with tabs should measure 17 3/4".
Assemble the bag according to the pattern directions.
Alright! I think that's it for me today! Please link up your finishes for the week. Thank you, as always, for joining me for finish it up Friday! Have a great weekend!
I love the colors in your pincushion and the patchwork is just perfection. So fun!!! And that project bag is so handy at that size, another thing to add to my list to make ;)
Love all those hexies! I need to makes some of those project bags to organize my works-in-progress.
Thanks for sharing the link up again this week.
love your bag and your 30's style hexies - I have a jelly roll of 30's to use but I'm burned out on hexies - one using diamond shaped like you show and another just finished on the hand quilting frame last night - and another finished top yesterday - two finishes for Friday
I adore that pin cushion - so much fun!!
The pincushion is adorable :) You sure will be able to fit a lot of blocks in that WIP bag!
I love the pincushion, so cute! The plastic bag is very tempting, I have some clear plastic here at home and I think I have a large enough zipper too. I'm seeing a bag in my future!
I love this pincushion. I think it would be fun to turn it into a mini quilt or baby quilt.
Your very very small projects amaze me! The little pincushion is just gorgeous.
Great pincushion and project bag. I went right over and bought the project bag pattern. thanks for your larger size dimensions.
C'est vraiment très joli ! Bonne soirée
Love your hexies. Could you tell me what kind of scissors the aqua handled ones are? Thanks in advance
