The shawl is lovely, and the crocodile is adorable in his wee little party hat!

Prompt/Challenge Title: Keeper
Project Name & Page Link: Vintage Ditsy Floral Dresses
Team: Fitchberg Finches
Brief Description: I jealously hoard the remains of my ever-shrinking vintage fabric stash. I finally found the right occasion to use this, which started out life as part of a blouse (the upper right chest, if the remains of a collar and dart are anything to go on). Not sure what decade it’s from, but it was one of my favorites.

Brief Description:
These coasters are made with 3 layers: Cork fabric on the bottom, felt in the middle and then a faux leather on top. They were lots of fun to make (one at a time) and I got in a good rhythm towards the end :stuck_out_tongue: More info in project link.

Brief Description:
For this project I created 7 headphone holders out of plywood. I cut them on a laser cutter at a library maker space in Melbourne and then assembled them at home. They took quite a while but turned out great and were very well received :slight_smile: More info in project link.

Brief Description:
This was my first time using rainbow sashiko thread and I really loved it! I worked on this panel in the first week of my school holidays. I find sashiko panels such a mindful activity and feel a bit lost when I finish a design.

Prompt/Challenge Title: Goal Hoops
Project Name & Page Link: Grey Work Skirt
Team: Sumbawanga Sunrays
Brief Description: My ultimate goal with garment sewing has been to make pieces that I feel are well-made enough to wear in my corporate environment, and this is the first one that passes the check! The button placket is a little wonky (there was definitely a little bit of stretch and the pattern is meant for wovens), but presses out okay enough. The pattern is Simplicity 9267, made with mystery stash fabric.

Thank you! I honestly didn’t expect, when I started it, to like it as much as I do. Very pleasantly surprised.
