I was working on finishing my Union Jack pillow case from the FQ retreat in London.
Then I came to the part where I had to take the paper of the back and make decisions about what fabric to use for the sashing and the back of the pillow and I got distracted.
By a cute tutorial for a flex frame pouch that I saw on Leila's blog, and the fact that I had everything necessary to make two of those pouches (I had bought my flex frames at U-handbag), even using Liberty scraps (like Leila also does in her tutorial).
So then I spent the rest of my day making two flex frame pouches with Liberty fabrics (but not with hexies like Leila because that would have gone too far, and I am not ready for the whole hexy thing, hand sewing them and everything...). I finished both!
Aren't they lovely?! It's just incredible to me that you can actually make something like this with your own hands. Thank you, Leila, for the great tutorial and inspiration!
A succesful day I would say, even though I still haven't finished my Union Jack.
