I got myself a Plastic Bag Holder made up at last. I have been meaning to make one for ages and last week I noticed the fantastic tutorial at In Color Order for a quilted bag holder.
I used a couple of orphan Scrappy Trip blocks that I had made during the blog frenzy that surrounded this block a little while ago. Sewn together, they were just the right length but a little bit skinny...
So, I also added in some of my *Starter and Enders* - I keep a mini charm pack of 2.5" squares next to my sewing machine and stitch a couple together whenever I need a starter or an ender or even a middler to keep my chain piecing going. They make me so happy because they are like stitchy freebie blocks.
It feels good to use up some orphan blocks and make something useful at the same time.
Its a brilliant stash busting project for using up scraps and I think I might also use it as FMQ practice in the future.
I think these might be my sewing Christmas pressie project for this year now.
What have you been up to???? I love you to link up with us... everyone is welcome.
