My UFO's this month were to make myself a laptop bag and also a cover for my sewing machine. They've been on my 'to do' list for some time so it was great to get them done.
The pattern I used for the laptop allowed for adjustment to suit the size of your laptop and it was mostly fine but I did find it a bit lacking in detail in some areas, particularly on installing the zip. I also felt the size and method of putting the handles together left a bit to be desired. I don't like handles too short so I made them longer and narrower.
Next project - cover for my sewing machine. I had some fun with this and chose some of my absolute favourite fabrics - I mean after all this is for me and I'm going to see it every day! I used some gorgeous Amy Butler fabric, along with a smidgen of an aboriginal print that I love and only have the tiniest bit of left.
Next I had to turn them into an actual cover. A bit more of my Amy Butler fabric for the sides and behold - a cover!
I'm also eagerly awaiting the first block in The Splendid Sampler due out today sometime.
