Bags, Bibs and Pin Cushions and Pots.

Several more quick items which I made towards our forthcoming quilt club event.
Lots of bits and bobs, made from bits and bobs of fabric which will fill out the sales table and go towards tombola prizes.
It's a good exercise rummaging through my stash and deciding what could be made from each unwanted leftover.

This little handy pot was made from a 10 inch square of left over patchwork. I usually make triangular pots this way but thought I'd try this out with a square.

I wanted to try out this applique cat design so I used my sample piece as a pocket for this bag. I enjoyed making the cat and think I might do a small quilt with several of them.

Pincushions look complicated but they were quickly sewn by machine.
Straightforward shopping bags are so useful now that stores do not dole out plastic bags for free. A good way of using up remnants.

Baby's bibs, all made of cotton except for the satin bias around the necks.

Dear Jo, my favourite is the little square "pot"! I LOVE it, but I know I would tear my hair out making one…. this is the kind of sewing that I just don't find easy, my friend have taken me to workshops, I have been patently shown,,,,, to much like a maths lesson! But I think your choice of fabrics is lovely! Lxxx
