♪A Spoonful of Sugar Book Tour♪

Welcome to my stop of A Spoonful of Sugar Book Tour! I have been following Lisa Cox and her daughter Sarah's inspiring blog, A Spoonful of Sugar for a long time, so to be part of Lisa's blog tour of her new book is a great pleasure and honor for me♥

オーストラリアのパース在住の手芸家 Lisa Cox さんがこのたび著書を出版されました。長年手芸仲間として懇意にさせていただいているご縁で、嬉しいことに私も Lisaさんの「ブログツアー」に参加させていただくことになりました❣今日はそのブログツアーの一環でLisaさんの著書を簡単にご紹介させていただきますね。

In their blog, A Spoonful of Sugar, you will find plenty of sewing tutorials, baking recipes, and craft ideas that you just can't miss! Lisa lives with her family in Perth, Australia, and although we have never really *met* in person, we have been really good friends over the years, sharing our love of creation.

Lisaさんはお嬢さんのSarahさんとの母子コンビで有名なブロガーさんです。親子でA Spoonful of Sugarというブログを開設されていて、ソーイングのみならずお菓子作りのレシピや、キルトづくりや各種クラフトのレシピを惜しげもなく公開・発信されています。Lisa さんのブログ→☆

In this book, you will find twenty original, practical and sweet projects for yourself and for your home, and entire zakka projects in the book make perfect gifts.

Lisa さんが出版された著書 A Spoonful of Sugar には手作り雑貨20点が掲載されています。プレゼントにも最適な作品ばかりです。

So here's what I made from her book - Zakka Dilly Bags.  These are drawstring bags with a crocheted base. 

今回私もLisaさんの著書掲載作品より Zakka Dilly Bags(雑貨ふう巾着バッグ)を作ってみました。

The book calls for 6 1/4" or 15.9 cm diameter crocheted bottom base for the bags, but I adjusted the crocheted rounds to 3 1/2" and 4", to fit the water bottles snugly.

本の作り方によると、かぎ針編みで編んだ直径約16㎝大の円をバッグ底に使っていますが今回私は少しサイズを縮小してみました。市販のペットボトルのサイズに合わせて、かぎ針編みの円をそれぞれ直径 8.75㎝ と 10㎝ 大に編み、バッグ本体と縫い合わせてみました。

Lisa indicates using scrap of white felts and leather patch for the fabric labels, which I would have loved to use, but didn't have on hand. Instead I made the patches with coordinating fabric scraps.


The bags are perfect for me to carry water bottles wherever I go!


Of course, these bags are great to carry some yarns and a crochet hook, or generous in size to carry cookies and candies for your family and friends.


Let's have fun joining a SAL or sew-along A Spoonful of Sugar: Sew 20 Simple Projects to Sweeten Your Surroundings Zakka Style. There will be five rounds, each lasting for two weeks which will give you plenty of time to complete a project or two from the book.  Our good friend, Amy Sinibaldi from Nana Company is the Guest Judge, with fantastic prizes for the winner of each round, plus a Grand Prize Winner, generously sponsored by Alisha from Ministry of Fabric. We really hope you join in the fun! #ASPOONFULOFSUGARSAL

What a fabulous version of the water bottle cover Amy! Love the combination of crochet and linen!

These are great! Love the little details you added!

I really like the idea of bottle covers. I hate it when my water bottle sweats all over the place and warms up too quickly. Great idea. Love your decision to do your own thing with the sweet little labels.
