Fresh Sewing Day

I have not had the most productive of months. Regular readers will know a few of the reasons why and I won't bore you with the others. The only complete finish I have to show you is my pouch for the Mouthy Stitches swap. I haven't revealed it before now because I didn't want my partner to guess it was for them. And I was pretty sure they would guess it was for them. As I posted this off on Monday I am hoping my partner has received it by now. Still haven't heard yet and didn't see the 'received' next to her name in the sent/received thread. So I won't tell you who it's for...but I think it's probably ok to reveal both sides of the pouch. (And lets face it if I don't it will be a very short sew fresh sewing post!)

Side one a camper style van going on a journey from the country to the 'Big Smoke' London maybe?



P1110678
If you go to London you might want your Union flag to wave. If you squint at this from a distance the fish actually look like distress marks in the red fabric giving it a bit a of a punk look? 

I've made this cushion cover front. I just need to get my act together and actually make a cushion out of it!

I've also done the centre part of this block for Bee Blessed.

The pouch is brilliant, especially the fish in the union flag! It looks really punky (in a good way!)
