These cute lined zipper pouches/pencil cases are just so practical ... and fun to make. They don't take much fabric and there's a new skill for the Juniors to master. A win all round!

We just LOVE a new BOM that is quirky and cute and introduces a new technique to us. And this new Block of the Month by Anni Downs ticks all the boxes. Oh yes, and we just happened to totally fall in love with it! ;-)
Kay with the actual quilt.
We're looking at starting this BOM in February 2017 to give everyone a chance to get over the expense of Christmas.
It's a 12 month BOM and we guestimate that the cost will be somewhere in the region of $25 - $30 per month, (plus postage if required) which will include the pattern, the felted woven wool, the linen background and the vleisofix.
The cost for the 1st month will be slightly more at approximately $50 - $55 as the whole pattern arrives in a booklet form with the 1st month.
There will be an optional Aurifil thread pack for woven wool applique which will be an extra purchase if you choose to use it instead of DMC threads. I don't have details of the price for this yet but guestimate approximately $45. Prices are a bit dependent on the exchange rate at present.
This is what Anni has to say about her new BOM: "This quilt has been set out as a 12 part block-of-the-month program concentrating on a whimsical journey of dreams and random thoughts. Combining linen with woven wool appliqué and stitchery, it is the perfect project for any hand sewing enthusiast! The finished size of this quilt is 48" x 50"."
Please call us to book yours now so that we can get the orders in. ps - I'm SO happy, I won the draw to do this one as the shop sample _ Kay! :-) :-) *doing my happy dance*
Just love this panel and couldn't resist making a quick and easy quilt with it. Perfect for a little boy's bed! It comes as a kit which retails for $55.00. The kit contains a pattern and the fabric for the top but does not include the binding, backing or wadding.
Oh boy! Have I had fun making these cute little zippered pouches. I'm totally addicted and just want to make one in each of my favourite fabrics!! So be warned!
They will make the BEST gifts. Or just keep them for yourself! I put all my electronic leads etc into one when I traveled so I couldn't lose them and it worked brilliantly. No turning my suitcase upside down to find a lead!
My make up lives in one, my English Paper Piecing projects in another and my Applique project in yet another. Love them!! There is a pencil case or a zippered pouch in two sizes.
My 'test' samples are currently in the shop and the 'real' samples will be in the shop by Monday.
Date and time : Sunday, 4th December from 10am - 1pm OR Thursday, 12th January from 10am - 1pm Cost : $15 which includes the pattern, tea/coffee/cake
We came back from our Trade Show totally inspired and filled with enthusiasm. We also snuck a few little bits and bobs into the car to bring back with us... ;-)
These beautiful pocket mirrors are selling out fast - they retail at $9.35. Perfect as a gift for a girl friend or relative.
Some beautiful little pincushion patterns from Hatched and Patched. Either give the pattern as a gift or buy the pattern and make a few pincushions as gifts. They are so cute that I'd be happy with them popped on a shelf as a decoration! The pincushions can be made with normal fabric or felted wool as Anni has done. Many more patterns in the shop.
And that was about all we brought back with us, apart from so many amazing ideas and projects for the future.
Hold onto your hats, ladies. Next year is going to rock at Avonleigh!
