Thought I would show you a couple of sewing projects I “treated” myself with recently. First up is this Fusen box which I made from a kit that I bought at the Knitting and Stitching show. The stall was one specialising in imported Japanese fabric for quilting. I particularly like the ball ended zip that came with this kit. The zip was sewn in first and then I just had to fold and then sew the ends. After turning the box right side out I encouraged it to take shape by stuffing it with 20 CDs. Easy!
Second treat is this little pincushion box – another goody from Kokoro Te Noro by Kumiko Sudo. Fabric used is more of the Liberty Tana Lawn and some random rose fabric offcut that I seem to remember I once made a very bad, ill fitting top from. Its much better as a pincushion.
