Here is a photo of the PVC coated fabrics from "Grandmother's Flower Garden". They arrived a couple of weeks ago and I was so excited to receive a roll of each. Cute Huh? I have been hanging to get into them and this week, I finally had time to have a play with them. They are lovely and soft with a matt finish.
If you have visited Melly's blog lately, you will have seen what she made with them. She made her new overnight bag "sleepover" with the PVC and it is really cute. I had a play too and have made a makeup/toiletry bag which is big enough for your make up and shampoo etc.
It is fully lined with PVC and has a zip in the top.
The "rings" holding the handles are inexpensive plastic chunky bracelets in hot pink. I found it fun and simple to use 1" bias tape around all the raw edges as this meant I didn't need to turn handles or the bag.
There will be a few more fabrics from the range available in PVCcoat when it arrives in stores in Australia. I am planning to make a crayon/texta proof table cloth for when the little floss' come over and perhaps an apron or two.
I will spend the rest of the weekend proof reading the copy of my new book "A Stitch in Time". I went to see Anthea yesterday and she showed me the full layout. I think that because of how quickly Anthea has completed her work, I should have the book ready for International Quilt Market in Houston. It is only six and a half weeks till we leave and we are getting very excited! There will be quite a number of Aussie designers this year which is great!
It is also only three weeks till the Glenharrow Spring Stitch-in and I am looking forward to it immensely. Leanneand I are finalizing all the kits and gifts and we think all of you who will be there will be quite happy with them.
Till next time, Enjoy your creation!
