Painted Canvas....Zipper Bags

Painting yards of canvas is.....FUN!

Painted Canvas

Then slice up the canvas for projects...

I had a few leftover pieces...

I made these little zipper bags with them...

I cut the corners and squared the bottom...

They are a good size for make up, etc.

Jelly Roll Rug.....Progress

The last time you saw this jelly roll rug

it looked like this...

this is 4 hours into this project.

I stitched on it again today...

I finished stitching the batting inside

of all of the strips

and rolled them into a big ball...

This is my set up:

The big ball is sitting in a glass bowl 

between my feet...

This allows it to feed easily as I stitch...

In order to keep it perfectly flat,

I press the rug after 

I add each round of stitching...

Use lots of steam!

It gets bigger quickly...

It is 30 inches in length at this point...

with lots of strips left to sew around.

I am a total of 10 hours into this project...

I am thinking I may have it finished 

next Monday

in a couple of hours.

Very FUN and enjoyable!
