Sewing class #5

a fresh Sunday morning
with great daylight to take pictures

~ smile ~

I finished the cosmetic bag I started in class last week
not that easy, including the lining and zipper, but I did finish it
and again: learned a lot

the challenge of the week
is this WIP pillowcase that measures 40x60 cm
out of some left over pieces and an old sweater in the middle

I am happy about the look of it so far
now let's see if I can attach the back to it this week

more about the crochet blanket (almost finished!) and some boyfriends'grandma- items in a few days

enjoy your Sunday!
