The Plaid Post

You've gotta see it...

Monday, 10 November 2008 16:26 by sara


That's right. Projects are actually getting completed! I spent last Friday cleaning the office/sewing room, and it has become my sanctuary again.  

I was so inspired by my clean space that I committed to producing some items for the school's Christmas shop.  It's a gift shop filled with donated items (i.e. my criss cross coasters, maybe some totes and boxy little pouches) that children can purchase (for a minimal amount) to give their parents for Christmas.  Parents, of course, are not allowed in, lest it ruin the surprise. 

And we know that coasters are a hot item, despite Mr. Plaid's lukewarm feelings toward them.


I had this remnant left over from an apron I made myself last year.  One of my very first projects ever.  I thought it'd be fun to make a set of coordinated, but not matchy-matching coasters.  I used the Bend the Rules Sewing coaster version.  I backed them in a solid yellow.  Very fun.


These, I think, are my favorite. I love the fabrics. In fact, these are scraps left over from a purse I made myself.  The Artsy Clutch, also from BTRS.

I love productivity!

You may have not intended to do so, but I think you have managed to express the state of mind that a lot of people are in. The sense of wanting to help, but not knowing how or where, is something a lot of us are going through.
