Thanks. I really like the fabric too. It is insulated. Both the lining and the outer fabric have a layer of Insul-Bright quilted to them. I had never used it before. Pretty easy to work with. I have enough left over to make a few potholders.
A friend saw a pic of a casserole carrier and told me she thought I could make make one. So I found a video tutorial for one similar to what she had shown me and surprised her with one. The video was by The Crafty Gemini on YouTube, but there are lots of tutes out there, if you are interested in making one.
Project from the first One Yard Wonders book. It's the Obi Inspired Hot/Cold Pack. Love the way it turned out. Super easy to make. The most difficult part was filling the channels w/rice! Made it for a friend having back problems, but like it so much I think I'll make one for me too.
Wasn't really sure which category to post this in, but this makes the most sense to me. I wanted to make beach towels for the kiddos (and me too) for the summer. Here's my first attempt. Just sewed a simple flap on the short end of towel and used velcro as closure device. Just fold towel in half length-wise and roll up from bottom towards flap. You can roll up magazine, sunscreen, goggles, etc inside towel and they won't fall out. I thought on the next one I might add a small zippered pocket to store a little cash in.
Wasn't sure where exactly to post this, but this forum made the most sense. I made a couple of patches for a friend who's daughter just got the news she needs to patch one eye. Needless to say the child was NOT happy! So I made her a couple of special patches with her favorite characters on them.
Just in case anyone is interested in making one for a child they know, I included a picture of the lining.
Wanted to add a couple boy patches I made for another friend:
