The Muddle has been received!!!! My Sis loves them!!! She thinks I went overboard, you have to remember that I've never given her a birthday gift before. I told her it just kept growing. That I had a light bulb idea and had to make them. That I hadn't needed to buy anything except zippers. Shh, that's a lie, I had to buy interfacing as I ran out. You see our mom taught us that if you already own It then anything you make with It is free!! No matter what "It" is. So I paid maybe $3.00 for all this.
I will be sharing the patterns in the near future. I still have to write them and the one for the Bee zipper pouch. I'll try to get that out this week. Maybe I''ll write it tonight while I watch my shows.
I ended up being a few days late for Sis's birthday as I just couldn't send off the Muddle without a tote to match. I told you it just kept growing. Here is the tote, it's the same pattern as my ZigZag tote, offered here as a free PDF. I won't be sharing these patterns because they are either just everyday patterns or a private pattern I found on the internet. I did modify the mouse but not by much and I can't remember where I found it. I just did another search and it's gone now. So we may never know it's author. The slash blocks where supposed to be a zigzag but I didn't make the block right. It's not square to I should have done equal numbers for both length wise and height. I made them all the same so they couldn't be turned. Oh well, accidents are sometimes a great design element. Everyone does zigzag and not to many do slashes. LOL Basically you just need to make a mini quilt the right size for the tote and make a tote.
Keep Muddling on!!!
