Work in Progress Wednesday {01.05.2013}

This week’s projects that I must have finished this weekend are:

  • A custom Order from my Etsy Store for 5 Chair Bags
  • Madrona road challenge
  • Cushion Cover

For the chair bags, I have 3 girl and 2 boy themed bags/pockets to make. Here are the swatches below.

The boys have the grey corduroy with brown polka dots and whale fabric I purchased from Spoonflower.

The girls have aqua corduroy with brown polka dots and whale fabric I purchased from Spoonflower.IMG_7210

Madrona Road Challenge, my blocks are designed from a Dwell magazine picture. I have two made – I have 7 to do in the next week.

The cushion cover, I am still working on the design but I am thinking of using a design from the book Pillow Pop. See the flickr group here.

Don’t forget to go and take a look at the mosaic contest over at Stitch in Color, voting ends tomorrow.

I am linking up with Lee @ Freshly Pieced for WiP Wednesday.
