This week marks the send date for my FLiRTs Swap on Flickr.
This go round I really wanted to make something fab, and I was hoping to get a bag that I have been eyeballing FOREVER.
I made a Quilted Clock for my partner.I am happy with how it turned out, and thankfully my parter commented about it so I know she is going to love it!
I designed the pattern in my EQ7 and pulled some great fabrics out of my stash. The clockwork I picked up from the local craft shop. Getting the clock hands to fit and still turn without brushing against the fabric was a bit of a challenge. I ended up building the back up layer by layer until it was the right thickness, then enclosing it in a little pouch made from the backing scraps, and hand sewing it to the back of the clock. I am thinking about posting a tutorial or the pattern if there is enough interest.
I received my item in the mail just before the long weekend. I was so super stoked and happy I giggled like a maniac and my good old hubster though I had lost my mind.
My Partner made me this Gorgeous, Wonderful, SUPER AWESOME 241 BAG!
I love this bag!!
