With Thanksgiving behind us and looking toward Christmas
(and the colder weather that comes with this time of year),
I thought it was about time to head to my sewing studio.
I made myself a new winter bag.
It's made from a thrift store wool skirt and
left over fabric from last winter's bag.
So a great bargain bag!
Earlier in the fall, I made this bag.
When I spied the colors and pattern of this fabric
I knew it just had to become a bag.
I bought this fabric just for this project,
so not much of a bargain, but since I bought the fabric at
a big box store, not a budget buster either.
Next on the list are 5 small messenger bags for
our great nieces and granddaughter for Christmas.
I used double sided, pre-quilted fabric, so these
came together quickly.
And lastly, a sneak peak of the winter wall hanging I'm working on.
Still lots of detail work to be done, but I'm making progress.
I'm designing this one as I go, so that takes extra time with all the
measuring, and staring at fabrics on my design wall and
don't forget the mistakes.....all part of the creative process!
All in all, I've spent some fun hours in my sewing studio lately.
In case I don't make it back here for awhile again....
