Did you know it's less than five weeks until the Australasian Quilt Convention (AQC)? Amongst other things I've been working on this year's Make & Take.
It's a challenge coming up with a project that can be made in 50 minutes and this year was no exception. My work table was covered with just about every notion conceivable, roughly sorted into piles for one idea or another but it lacked that spark. So I called a halt and asked myself ‘what did I need’.
Once I knew that, I just had to design it & choose the materials; keeping in mind it needed to be hand sewn, sew-able in 50 minutes and suited to all skill levels.
And what I needed was a Key Case, somewhere for the spare key, something to clip inside a handbag - a safe spot for rings or earrings, a place to keep a token or coin for the shopping trolley.
The Make & Take is on each day at 12pm.
The cost is $15 for the Key Case kit.
The kit includes, precut felt, threads, needle & key chain.
You won't get it quite finished in the time but you'll be very close too.
Book at Stand 167,
collect your kit,
make your way to Make & Take 1 just before noon,
sit and stitch for 50 minutes.
It's that easy!
