Making bags seems to have taken over at bit here at the moment and following on from mylast minute quick make drawstring bag I focussed on making this quick and easy drawstring bag using some amazing Harry Potter fabric which was gifted to me by The Craft Cotton Company.
I wanted to add a little detail to the bag and knew I had to add a little golden snitch to the front of the bag. Luckily I had some golden and white felt in my stash and some matching embroidery threads – isn’t often I manage to have the right shades and normally have to rush out and by some to match!.
I love how this bag has turned out – I will definitely be making some more for gifting this Christmas.
I can’t believe I’m on to block 5 already – I’ve kind of got a bit carried away and stopped all other projects while doing these! I might need to slow down a bit so I can finish off some of my other half completed projects.
Following on from the Redstone Ore block is a magma block – seeing some orange wool in my stash prompted me to do the magma cube next.
While making my first two corner to corner Minecraft blocks (TNT and Chest blocks) I was sat looking at all the side pieces laid out and that gave me another make idea (not that I really need any more WIPs on the go…), this idea was to make a Minecraft themed blanket to show the fronts of all the blocks I have made. All I need to do for this is make one extra front side of each of the blocks and then put them all together to get my finished blanket.
I might a border once I’m done but I will wait until I’ve got a few more joined together until I decide. To join the blocks I just placed them right sides together and sewed down the side, so far I’ve got 3 of the blocks joined and hopefully it won’t be too long until I have a few more to add to it.
Following on from my Diamond ore block I decided to keep with the ore theme and opted to make a redstone ore next!.
This is quite similar to the diamond ore, but I think this and the diamond ore will look really good together. I have already got the next block started too – this will be a magma block and I cant wait to share it!.
Once you have made the 6 sides sew the pieces together down the sides, you can use a piece of foam or stuffing to fill the cube. If using a cube sew the pieces together around it, if your using stuffing sew all the sides together but leave a 10cm gap so you can then put the stuffing in then sew the gap closed.
