The latest project from my sewing room.......

....and I didn't even make it (gasp!)

My younger daughter made this denim and flannel "quilt" (I did assist as well as one of her friends).
front view, love the flannel shirt and jeans look!


back view, mostly scraps :)


Thanks for stopping by!

Vintage and Scrap Fabric Bag

Unlike recent years, 2010 has not been a year for me making lots of bags. However, I had the "itch" for a new bag and I can no longer purchase one that suits me, so I got busy sewing.


The flowered fabric is vintage bark cloth, purchased at a local thrift store and the aqua and black fabrics were scraps from other projects. I just love using scraps, they are like buried treasures in my sewing room! This bag is large, maybe too large, we will see :)

The bag is perched on our new hammock, we all love this new comfy spot in our backyard, that may be one reason I'm not getting much sewing done! I have so many projects swimming around in my head, it's just time to get some started.....and I just now thought about Christmas, wonder what gifts I will make this year.....keep watching ;)

Hope you are enjoying your summer!
