A friend and I were chatting via email and she reminded me about a shirt I had embroidered for her with a zebra with it’s stripes falling off. I started laughing as I remembered the “Stress Zebra”. I NEED one of those I told her. So I found some of the canvas bags I had purchased to embroider on and put the stress zebra on it. It always makes me laugh to see that poor zebra. I’ve put a closer image of the zebra below.
I’m close to having that shawl done that I have been working on for my friend so I should have another picture to put up in another day or so of the finished and blocked shawl.
I bought some really cute Minion and some pumpkins fabric at JoAnn’s Fabrics on Thursday (big labor day sale :P). I want to make some knitting bags, one like the canvas bag shown (but using regular fabric rather than canvas) and one called a knot bag. I have a pattern for the one like the canvas bag, but did not find a knot bag pattern at the fabric store. I’ll have to go online and look to see if I can find a good one. I’ll post pictures when I am finished with that as well. I have ideas on what I want to do with the regular bag, tho my sewing skills may not be good enough for what I want to do. Good thing I have some friends that sew well :). I might get one of my friends to make a pattern for me and teach me how to sew it :). I’ll have to work on that. Not sure why the interest in sewing all of a sudden, but hey, creativity is all good.
Hope you all enjoy your Labor Day Week-end.
