This little sewing project was finished out of necessity.
My youngest son needed a bag for his clarinet music. He has been colouring this piece of Pokemon material on and off for a few months and decided it would make a good bag.
It is fully lined it with a great flame fabric, so if we need to or want to it is fully reversible.
Now E just needs to finish colouring. 😃
This is OPAM 8 for December.
See you soon.

I decided the children on my gift list would receive a personalised pillowcase this year as my boys love the ones they received last year. So after a few text messages with the Mums we have 6 pillow cases for 6 special people.
L-R Blue LEGO FAN, Purple girlie girl, Blue camping girl, Orange piano player, Green bike loving boy & Green LEGO fan.
The LEGO pillows were the hardest as Lego fabric is hard to find in my part of the world, so I ended up printing colourful silhouettes on fabric & appliqueing them on. I think they look cute.
I do particularly love the photo of them all wrapped & stacked.
December the month of 'lasts' and farewells every year. We live in South-West Qld and many people transfer through town for work.
Our teachers are often on the "transfer trail". This year it was the Instrumental music teacher, Me Bensley. She had taught both of my boys for 3 years so it was a hard goodbye. (1 plays Clarinet and the other plays Saxophone)
What's a quilter to do?? Make a quilt of course, a music themed quilt.
Quilt specs: Bali Batik Jelly Roll from Wacky Jackys
Music Silhouette patterns from Patchwork at the Bay Window
And a music definition print I stumbled across somewhere.
Quilted by me on "O-me".

(I am posting this from my phone. I'm not sure how it works.)
Only one finish in the Outback crafter house this month.
This cross stitch was started & finished in a week. A fairly intense week though.
It was gifted as my secret santa for my UFO Craft group. The mystery recipient loved it.
