I am travelling in a couple of weeks. I decided that I needed a new purse and wallet.
I dipped into my stash and found some Tula Pink for the wallet.
It has cute foxes and bright colours, but it has a problem. For the wallet, I need a strip the entire width of this fat quarter and about one fox high.
If I put my ruler exactly under the first fox, the next one is up about 1/4". As I move across, it gets worse.
It is almost an inch out by the end of the strip. That will look terrible on the outside of a wallet. I think this piece will become fussy cut pockets.
Time for another dive.
My other favourite fabric designer is Laurel Birch. I have been hoarding this piece forever, and I think it is time it became a wallet.
I have some of the complimentary fabric, and some polka dots that are in the right range. I like the look so far. Just another bunch of pieces to cut, and interfacing for everything, then I can start to sew.
Meanwhile, after finishing the SHAWL, I needed something more soothing.
It is another Baby Surprise Jacket, for another baby newly born. The yarn is Snuggly by Sirdar. The colours aren't my usual, but I like the combination.
