New finishes for February
I finished my sewing machine cover. I am very happy with the result.
I dyed the fabrics last Spring at a workshop, and it was such a hassle, that I decided then and there that it was the first and last time that I dyed anything. I had no idea what to use the fabrics for, I thought that they were too light weighted anyway.
When I was looking for which fabrics to use for the cover, I came across the bag full of these fabrics and decided to give it a try. And it was a dream come true! I love the colors put together, I love the feeling of the fabric, and it was very easy to work it them.
I have a feeling that I will try dying again in the future... :-)
The little 'bag in a book' will go to a dear friend of mine, whose name I will not reveal yet, as she might be lurking around. It is a re-usable cotton bag folded in a sort of cover, to keep in her handbag for quick and small shopping to use instead of plastic bags to save our environment. I think it is cute.
