Laundry Bags Continued.

 Laundry bag tops with Hard Yakka pants.
 This is how I cut them.
 Laundry bag outer washed, cut and ready to sew.
 I make one deviation from the instructions on how to make the laundry bags. When I fold the laundry bag top in half I sew it together in a narrow edge. This makes it easier when you put it all together, You can then treat it as a single piece of fabric and no worries about it slipping.
Laundry bag linings all ready and waiting for the next step. It has been quite a while since I have done a mass amount of sewing like this. I find that doing the steps like this quite fun.

This is just a few of the laundry bag tops I have made ready for laundry bags. This is from the Hard Yakka trousers.

Quilt Finished.

 The quilt request for a friend is finished. Normally I do not make things other than for charity and community, but I made an exception here, a donation to the GoFundMe for Jan-Maree was acceptable in this case.
This is the back.

Look What Arrived In The Post!

 Look what arrived in the post today, A Care package of my own! You can imagine my surprise and confusion when I saw it. I thought at first that it was the quilt coming back to me until a closer look and read the description. Excitement and wonder took the place of in trepidation, this is what it must feel like to open a package!

This is the contents of the box. The zip pull he has made himself, as well a a lovely letter and photo  him holding his quilt.

Aussie Hero Quilt Finished.
