The was a sea creature presentation at my son's school. So I decided to try my hands on that as well, taking into account that I have a wardrobe full of different unthinkable materials which are just waiting their time to be used for ages :)))
Actually what I made are a mask and a fin, which I stitched to the shark t-shirt.

Can't stop making different fabric storage baskets. These time it's a grocery bag dispenser. There are lots of tutorials in the Internet. I have chosen this one, but with some changes. Before that all such bags were stored in a bulky plastic bag hanging behind the door on the door knob, and making it difficult to open that door completely. Not to mention that there were a mass of different bags half of which were not used at all.
Now everything is organized!!!

I was planning for a long time to make a play mat for my son, and couldn't finalize the project till I came across with this nice pattern on Etsy from CozyNestDesign. It seemed to be a great solution to my dilemma. Luckily I found nice fabric which suits to the idea of car play mat with ready roads and another necessary designs to play with cars.
So here how it came out.

To be more precise one bonnet and one summer hat (bucket style).
Here is the pattern for the sun bonnet.
And here is the pattern for the summer hat. Though it's in Danish I think instructions are clear if you use google translate.
Here is another pattern for the summer bucket hat which I'm going to try next time for my daughter.

I think it's only in India you can find special points (booths) where you can give your clothes for ironing. They are situated almost on every street. People there are ironing with heavy irons run on charcoals all day long.
I came up with the idea of a bag where you can see the number of clothes laid in layers. The top and bottom part of the bag are quilted. In the center the clear vinyl strip. At the back of it there is a transparent pocket for a slip of paper to write the total for the ironing services.
Size of the bag is approx 15 X 15,5 X 12 inches. Quite spacious!

This fabric basket is approximately 8" square and 10" tall. I made it specially for my daughter's toys.The tutorial is taken from here.
As usual my favorite orange color fabrics. I made some quilting in heart shape along the white stripes to make it more appealing, and at the same time practiced free motion quilting.
