Plate full

There is going to be no Alphabet Tuesday this week. I just can't spend today stitching up the letter Q in a rush. I rushed over the little pig last week and I am not 100% happy with it so to avoid a repeat performance I am going to let this week slide by.

In my head I have so much else to do: a little girls' dress, a dress-up cape and crown for my boy, a simple top for myself...so many ideas, not enough time!

Instead I am going to share with you a little bit of work from late last week. I made myself an obi wrap, I just made it up off the top of my head, its not rocket science sewing. I had a last piece of a navy blue oriental style cotton that I used for this patchwork, and this doll, and I wanted to be able to wear the last little scrap of this fabric. I had left over bias binding from my wrap skirt.

If I make another I might make it thinner width and the ties a little longer so I can double wrap them around myself. A nice result though for an experiment.

OK, back to the sewing machine to finish a doona cover. Hope you are having a productive Tuesday!

It's so nice to be able to just whip something up for yourself for once! The fabric is lovely - I have some of that in the stash!
