They say that a girl can never have enough purses. I used to disagree, until I started sewing them. Now I must have ALL THE BAGS! Ahem. My first Showoff Bag is looking a little worn, so I made a new one.
After over a week of dealing with crazy moving stuff, I finally got to sit down with my sewing machine in the new apartment and make a couple small projects. My inner-crafter is pleased!
I made a 241 Tote for my mom. I think it turned out super cute! She picked the fabrics on her own, the prints are from Joel Dewberry’s Notting Hill line.
I made my new favorite bag out of amazing fabric, then made a zipper pouch with the leftover fabric. The bag is amazing, but the pouch and I are not on speaking terms at the moment.
This week I’m sewing a Two Zip Hipster bag from fabrics out of Timeless Treasures “Bright Lights, Big City” collection. It’s going pretty well, except for a seam allowance disagreement that my sewing machine and I had.
I made some Brick Patch Coasters with my brand new Brother sewing machine. And, I learned how to sew on quilt binding!
Over the weekend I made a few sets of coasters, and a cat toy. I’d like a new sewing machine, but mine still does the trick.
I made a couple of boxy pouches. They’re fun, and cute.
I made a knitting needle roll out of super cute fabric, and now my stuff is organized, yay!
