New Projects to make and Ideas to try 2014

New Projects to make and Ideas to try 2014

This is a sort of reverse UFO Zapping! This is a list of things you'd like to make or ideas you'd like to try in the next twelve months. It'll help you remember all those plans. I'll give a prize every month to one person who ticks an item off their list. Remember this is a list of NEW projects or ideas, not old.

Hello, to add excitement and so I am not just doing ufos, I lose enthusiasm after a while, here is my list of things to do and try.

1. English paper diamond/star quilt.

2. Rail fence quilt.

3. Gnome quilt.

4. Charm pack bag.

5. Bungle jungle quilt.

6. Emily birds and flowers quilt.

7. Nanna flower quilt.

8. Japanese lantern bag.

9. Elephant cushion.

10. I would like to try thermofax screen printing and make something with the fabric I have printed.

I think that will do for the moment. It should all keep me very busy.

Thank you Katy

I think my challenge will be to come up with as many new ideas as I can for bags!!!

I wake up in the night with ideas going around in my head. Must keep a notepad and pen by the bed.......

Japanese lantern bag sounds interesting. I'm looking for an idea for my Daughter in Law's birthday, perhaps I could give this a try. Where can I see the instructions?

I don't know about Japanese Lantern bags either!

I've added all these to the list, Lillian, there's lots of good stuff on your list, and Brenda, we love your bag ideas, so think of lots of them!

Hello Susan and Katy,

The lantern bag is a kit from euro Japan links. It is very cute. Here is a link to the pictures from their website of the bag open and closed. I picked it up at festival last year but didn't get a chance to start it. It come in two sizes. The picture is of the smaller one.

Hope this helps.
