After my mammoth quilt finish last week, I needed a couple of smaller projects to finish up this week.
First up was this drawstring playmat for a precious friend who just had a baby girl (finally there are some baby girls in my life - it seemed for a while there that everyone I knew was having boys!). I used Jodi's pattern for this and it was brilliant - really easy to follow with lots of photos. The great thing about it is that when you are ready to go you can just pull the strings and it becomes a bag to carry around all that baby/toddler stuff!
Secondly I needed to whip up a quick birthday present and decided to try my hand at making a boxy pouch.
Another great pattern, although I probably should have used some interfacing. I love that this fabric needed no embellishments or patchwork to make it look fantastic - I am finally appreciating the Tula hype!
The playmat is my third finish for the 2014 Finish Along Quarter 4.
