I've been wanting to try my hand at stitching up a zippered project bag. I found some good basic instructions for one on LuAnn Kessi's blog. Over the last couple of years I've collected lots of pretty fabric remnants from the tote bags I've made. My goal is to create something from these remnants, and little project bags would be just right. So I followed the instructions for sewing the bag. You'll notice that I didn't do the quilting part, even though I think the quilted finishes on her blog are gorgeous. I'm just not a quilter, but I love seeing other crafters' quilt finishes. Anyway, I chose a cool brown print and a coordinating polka dot fabric for the lining.
I also made another little ort container and matching scissor fob for a gift.
Thank you to all of my followers who have left kind and encouraging comments on my posts. And thank you to my new followers! I'm getting closer and closer to that 200 follower mark. Hmmmm, do you think I should have a "200 Follower Giveaway"? I'll have to think about that!
So I think I used my snow day pretty well. I just need some more snow days. No, I take that back. No more snow, please! I have to figure out how to get some snow days without the snow.
