The Quilter's Trug by Brenda Walker
I won't say these have been easy to make as I have certainly had a few "moments" during the making but I'm thrilled with the results.
They are made with linen and Craf-Tex to give them stability. As ever, my measuring and cutting out left something to be desired (will I ever learn?) and before I had even got the fabric out I had had to call the shop that I had bought the kit from because I thought I was missing a piece of the pattern (I wasn't but I'm apparently not the only one to have asked). Still, no pain, no gain - and my fingers are killing me from passing the needle through all the layers! According to the pattern, there should be a padded heart on each side at the join with the handle but I wasn't pleased with how they turned out so I opted for a button - who doesn't love a button?
I will be linking up with Handmade Monday as usual (http://handmadeharbour.blogspot.co.uk/). Thank you all for your lovely comments last week. I shall enjoy sitting on the patio reading through everyone's blogs - hurrah that we finally have the weather to do so!
