Stash-Buster Project #4 & what I've been up to these week . . .

Hello ! 

First I would like to WELCOME my new followers and readers !! I hope you enjoy what I will be sharing with you !

These days I'm being an 'all over the place crafter' . . . yes, I have started several different projects at the same time. 
Last week I got mail. I had order from a shop in Madrid this vinyl fabric, nice eh ? 

Hola !

Primero me gustaria dar una gran BIENVENIDA a mis nuevas seguidoras y lectoras !! Espero que disfruteis lo que voy a compartir con vosotras ! 

Estos dias he 'hecho un poco de todo' . . . y he empezado varios proyectos al mismo tiempo. 
La semana pasada me llego un paquete en el correo. Había pedido esta tela plastificada de una tienda de Madrid, bonita eh ? 


I am working on a project with it. This bias binding tape is actually one I already had as this is the one I use for pinky buntings, and the spotty fabric behind is the one I will use for the inside of the project. 

Estoy trabajando en un proyecto con ella. La cinta bies es una que ya tenia ya que esta es la que uso para los banderines rosa, y la tela de puntitos es la que ira como forro del proyecto. 

But for the moment I cannot tell you what this will be as I don't know if it will come out 'presentable' to show it here. . . :-)
Pero por el momento no os puedo contar que será ya que no se si me saldrá o no lo que quiero hacer y si estará 'presentable'  para enseñarlo aquí . . .:-)


Here is a teaser of it only. . . now the reason I don't know how it will come out is that I have never worked with vinyl fabric before. 

And the bias binding. . . hmmm, I'm not sure I will use it in the end either.... anyway,  when I finish whatever comes out of this, if it's presentable, I will show it to you. If not. . . maybe I will show it too and tell you what did not work. 

Aqui tenéis una pista . . . la razón por la que no se si funcionara es porque nunca antes he cosido tela plastificada.

Y la cinta bies. . . hmmm, no estoy segura aun de la usare o no tampoco. . . bueno, cuando acabe lo que salga de aquí, si se puede enseñar, os lo mostrare. Si no. . . igual os lo muestro también y os cuento porque no ha salido bien.





I have also been working on this other project. . . actually, this is a custom order for my lovely brother and sister in law. And I am under pressure to finish it as the baby is due in about a week !! 

Yes, another bunting !! I can't help it. They wanted something with the name of their baby on it, they already know it's a boy even though they are not Spanish or don't live in Spain they wanted to find out before birth. 

The colors had to be beige, brown, natural, earthy . . .with the name of the baby. 
So I'm making this bunting, with something different  (to what I have done in other buntings) at both ends

También he estado trabajando en este otro proyecto . . . este es un pedido para mis queridos cuñados. Y tengo la presión ya que esperan el bebe la próxima semana !! 

Si, lo se . . .otro banderín ! no lo puedo evitar. Querían algo con el nombre del bebe, ya saben que será un niño. 

Los colores que me pidieron eran beige, natural, marron . . .colores tierra . . . y el nombre del bebe. 
Así que estoy haciendo este banderín con algo diferente a mis otros banderines en los extremos. 


I wanted to give it that rustic look too by using a darker thread and kind of uneven too . . . I think it looks nice in this occasion. . .  

Y le quise dar un toque rustico usando un hilo que resaltara y también coserlo un poco mas desigual . . .y me gusta como ha quedado . . .






I would also like to make a matching cushion but I still have to design it, I have a rough idea but I have to work on it more until I'm 100% happy with it. 

These are the two main reasons why I have not been stash-busting too much these days. . . 

But I still have managed to make these cute crocheted pin cushions: 

También me gustaría hacer un cojín a juego pero aun tengo que diseñarlo, tengo una idea pero aun tengo que perfilarlo hasta que este 100% contenta con el diseño.

Estas son las principales razones por las que no he estado haciendo mucho para el Reto Lanas Fuera  estos días . . .

Pero si he hecho estos alfileteros de ganchillo:

  5. You have been busy. The vinyl is so pretty. I have a bunch of oilcloth, vinyl, and laminated cotton and haven't used any of it yet. I love the bunting. And your pin cushions are so cute too. I was doing well just sticking to a few projects but I just started three new ones so now I am all over the place too.
