So I took this pile of stuff out in the garden and decided to cut enough material for key chain clutches by Michelle Patterns. I am doing two small items for the sample swap. The other items were started ages ago but not finished. I said as I was making a small item I'd make a key fob too. As I've seen other people with they type of fobs I was going to make as 'extras' with their sample swap item and someone else is selling the same fob type at quilt market, I decided to have a rethink and have a go at this pattern for the first time.
As these are so small - key ring sized. (Just room for a lipstick and a hankie) they were quite fiddly to make and I could have made a bag in the time it took to make these. Some may wonder why I didn't choose making a bag for my sample swap item. Well when it came to sign ups a lot of people had already specified bags so I thought I should pick something different.
I went for guardsmen ribbon to hold the key ring bit as I thought that would be a nod to London where the FQ Retreat is being held.
In between doing these I also managed to start and finish my book group choice.
I had read this years ago and as a notorious non-re-reader I had wondered how I'd fair trying to read it again. As it was it was devoured in a few hours. Definitely one to read if you've not already.
Time for a cuppa now and maybe to put some clothes on!
