Put your foot down 213

Put your foot down 213, a weekly linky party occurring every Thursday for you to share your WIP’s, UFO’s, new finishes, or any fiber arts projects. Thank you all for linking up each week!

Whats under my foot…

is the November Island Batik Challenge. For this challenge I chose Room With A View from byannie, the large bag which is a 12.5″ cube. I wondered if it would fit in my cubes from Ikea when I chose it, in the Add On video for the bag Annie does say they fit. Yay!

Zippers are not my forte but with each bag I make there is an improvement, which kinda makes me happy. My husband is hard on zippers and replaces his own, but I’m willing to bet he will start asking me soon.

I also received some new fabric. For the Quilt the World 2023 hosted by AccuQuilt, Island Batik sent me red and blue fabric from their foundations collection. I really like the foundations because they are available throughout the year, and if you see something you like in my posts they are more easily found than the seasonal fabrics. This project has to be completed by Dec 20th.

Mary Mack Made Mine sells Island Batik fabric in her Etsy shop. She is a fellow IBA, and if she doesn’t have it in her shop she will order it. I’m not sure if she has a minimum purchase for special orders because I usually purchase a bolt or two. These are from the Farm Country collection.

  1. Hi Denise, it’s always nice when working on something that it’s easier the second and third time around (like zippers). Looking forward to seeing your bag and how it fits in the Ikea cubby. Thanks for the party 🙂 All the best.

  2. Oh, congratulations on the zipper improvement! I am barely on speaking terms with those things. LOL. I have learned that I cannot attempt or plan to “do it real quick.”
