I got to sewing with BLUES...


I tipped all my scrap blues out for my next project.
I was on the way to make 2 special laundry bags for Aussie Heroes.

What a pile of scraps...

I came across this great tutorial for the ANCHOR block.
Jennifer has done a brilliant job with step by step photos and instructions.
They are very accurate and easy to follow.
I will definitely make more of these if needed. 
As you can see I have used all different scraps too.

A good size sailing boat.

The anchor pattern bag looks great.

So here you can see lots of blue work happening.

I order what colour August will be...


  1. I do love popping into your blog, you are always creating something and keeping busy... wonderful laundry bags xxx

  2. Great pattern, makes a good laundry bag.

  3. What a fantastic bag. One would think that you had purposely planned to use those fabrics rather than picking out from your scraps. You've got another amazing finish. Thank you for sharing! --Andrea

  4. what a great way to use up some scraps both good to look at and practical too

  5. You have made two fantastic Laundry Bags from your blue scraps with great Anchor and a Boat.
    Bet the recipients will love them...

  6. What a great way to use some of those little leftovers that are hard to part with, Jo! Great work there x

  7. Thanks for sharing that link with ScrapHappy Saturday over on Angela's So Scrappy blog!! I collect various anchor themed blocks and am pleased to have an easy one.


Thanks for taking the time to have a read and leave me a message.
Have a great day
