I mysteriously hurt my back a couple of weeks ago (stretched weird? twisted in my sleep? who knows?) and not being able to really sit for a long time without pain meant that I couldn't really play with any of my new sewing things. I'm really liking the speed at which I can complete some of these small projects.
So after my run of anti-inflammatories and muscle relaxants to take care of the inflamed nerve and muscle spasms, I kind of went a little nuts. I had made one or two little mini-duffles from some fat quarters.
And I got it into my brain that I really needed to make some more.
They're just so small and useful! I can't stand it.
And since I've hurt my back, I've been using my electric heating pad thing a lot more. Unfortunately, it had one of those brown polyester cover that's kind of terrible and itchy. So I made a new one:
I made some calculation errors regarding the seam allowances, but some creative hand stitching fixed that and I'm really pleased with it. And it looks a hell of a lot better in teal and marigold than ugly polyester brown. :D
