What to do on a rainy sunday afternoon? Well, how about a bit of relaxing in your sewingroom? That sounded like a good idea and i still had the paperpieced Featherweight block lying around.
Decided it had to become a tote. Not for grocery shopping but for the FW.
The pattern required ready-bought piping. Not going to happen. the only thing I could get here was "yuk" polyester/shiny/pastel coloured stuff. So instead i bought cord and ready made bias strips and made myself some piping. So far so good.
Getting the piping on the pattern pieces was another story! What a struggle to get it as tight as i wanted it to be.
Wááááyyyy past dinnertime I had a headache and this:
Some more pics to show that wretched piping
Now I can relax and to some handquilting on the couch...
Happy Memorial Day, 2017!
