Sea Glass Tonga Treats

I'm in that restless phase where I'm not immersed in a big creative project but I still want to sew. So I pulled out this pack of Tonga Treats that I bought awhile ago. It's called Sea Glass and I love the soft blues, greens and greys.

I found this free pattern  on line from Timeless Treasures using Sea Glass Tonga Treats ...

... then discovered that the pattern was for the 2 1/2-inch-wide treats and mine were 6 inches. Bummer.

Then I realized that I could cut just enough 2 1/2-inch strips for the pattern plus have an inch-wide strip of each color left over to make a coiled fabric basket. So I cut them all up and dove into the sewing last night. Now the weather is so gorgeous that I feel I should be outside instead of sewing.

Hope you're all having a good weekend.

Have a colorful day

Beautiful fabrics! But do enjoy the beautiful weather while you can... plenty of time to play in the studio when the gray, cloudy days set in.
