I added the blankie last minute. The color of this vintage
bed sheet scrap complements Teddy's eyes :)
I used this tutorial for the sleeping bag.
For the next project, I have always wanted to try a Japanese Knot Bag. I followed this tutorial but changed the size a bit. I wanted mine a little smaller to hold knitting projects. I always like to have one with me in case I have a few minutes to knit. I usually carry a large handbag wherein my yarn and needles get lost in the mess of keys, receipts, wallet, pens, etc. This seemed like a good solution so I found a vintage bed sheet from my fat quarter fabric swap collection and started sewing my first Japanese Knot Bag.
Other side of bag.
This is the same bed sheet I used to make Teddy's blankie :)
Lastly, since I'm in a yellow, vintage mood today, "show and tell" is a vintage Pyrex bowl set called Shenandoah. It is a Pyrex bake, serve, store set from 1982. The pattern, Shenandoah, is a butter yellow color with green sweet pea type flowers and vines, one of the last American-made patterns. The set contained 3 bowls and 3 lids that can be stacked on top of one another. Pictured are the 2 smaller bowls. Maybe I will find the last bowl someday and complete the set. It is a darling pattern.
Note on April 30th: today I found the same exact vintage bed sheet used in my Japanese Knot Bag! Now I have a whole double sized sheet of that lovely fabric :) I will be listing it on my etsy shop this weekend, if you are interested, as fat quarters and custom orders.
