4 In Sewing/ The Best Of Emkie

Some secret projects revealed…

Hi everyone
In October I worked on quite a few projects that had to be kept under wraps and some still can’t be revealed just yet! ย 
Here are 2 projects that were kept on the down low:
A birthday present for my Mum
Yes she asked for a scarf and chose the main flower print fabric from my stash (a cord fabric purchased at spotlight ages ago), but I actually finished it on time!
I paired the chosen fabric with some buttercream yellow microfleece (purchased at Lincraft) and a very small amount of Calypso (by Maud Asbury for Blend).
Mum opened her present and has worn her scarf almost every day since! ย Yes we are having some bad weather at the moment in Melbourne…but I think she would even have worn it in 30 degree weather as she loves it so much ๐Ÿ˜›
A birthday present for another good friend
This friend has supported my handmade hobby business endeavour and made some purchases from me in the very early days – which made me extremely happy!
So, I wanted to make her something special that I hoped she would appreciate.
I had trouble deciding between the green and grey and a burnt orange fabric, as I know she quite likes orange ๐Ÿ™‚ I obviously ended up choosing the green and grey, which is a quilting cotton, however there was no name on the selvedge ๐Ÿ™ ย If you know what it is – please feel free to let me know!ย 
I purchased it at the Craft and Quilt Fair earlier this year. ย ย 
I’m glad I went with the green and grey as I think the clutch* came up beautifully ๐Ÿ™‚ Especially with the purple surprise inside ๐Ÿ˜€ (a quilting cotton purchased at spotlight).
* This is the “fold over clutch” pattern byย Michelle Patterns/Keyka Lou design – itย isย no longer available to purchase.
Hopefully I can reveal a few more secrets soon ๐Ÿ™‚

    I love that clutch! The scarf looks so nice and cozy too! Always handy when someone can tell you what they want for a gift!
