|Stripy lap quilt 46 x 56 inches|
I was given some batik fabric and a laser cut felt motif for my birthday, with matching beads. I decided something useful should be made from them. The result is this small shoulder bag with a matching purse. It measures 9 x 7 inches and is 1 inch deep.
Another bag is from a pattern I have used before. I made it smaller this time as I was using up some leftover jelly roll strips that I had joined together and cut into 4.5 inch squares. I was going to use them in a Project Linus quilt until I noticed the bag I had made from 5 inch squares and changed my mind. I call it a Spot check bag - small as the previous one was a Spot check bag - large. At 16 x 12 x 8 inches this is a useful size. It is lined with a pink glazed fabric, probably poly-cotton, and has two inner pockets one zipped for security.

I have made some birthday presents for quilting friends, one hand quilted cushion cover as part of a set for a big birthday,

I have been crocheting hats, mittens and scarves for the Shoe box appeal as well as finishing a blanket, the yarn for which came as a Christmas present from my parents. I really enjoyed this project.
