ZIP A DEE DOO DAH
ZIP A DEE AY,
MY, OH MY, WHAT A WONDERFUL DAY!
PLENTY OF SUNSHINE COMIN' MY WAY,
ZIP A DEE DOO DAH. ZIP A DEE AY!
Short and sweet this week...
Featured on my desk is.......don't faint, Julia.......ZIPS!!
Well, a zipped bag for Sue H to put her cable/circular needles in. It's only the second zip I've done, so don't look too closely! I certainly wouldn't get good marks on The Great British Sewing Bee.... I'm really enjoying that programme and want the big hairy bloke to win, because I like his Steampunk costume background :)
You can see the tutorial on my iPad. Thank you Jaki for posting this - it was really helpful and very straightforward for a zippy ignoramus like wot I is :)
The bag is to match a knitting needle roll for Sue...
I hope she likes them!
I bought some more fat quarters and material for lining stuff in Fabricland in Salisbury the other day...
Spotty dotty....and a real bargain! As were these...
It's like a mini William Morris willow leaf print and goes well with the chintzy roses. I shall be making more zipped bags with these beauties and filling them with toiletries, some beaded bracelets etc. They are going to go to the Salisbury Womens' Refuge, which is the WOYWW crop charity this time. If anyone would like to bring some items with them to the crop, they would be gratefully accepted. I've been buying BOGOFs and putting the second item aside for example. Hopefully they will bring a little luxury to the women who often have nothing.
And finally, our whole family has been enjoying the new woodburner but this sight made me laugh the other day....
They couldn't choose between the fire or the sunshine, so settled for a combination of the two. You can almost smell the singed fur!!
Have a great week!!
