Weekend Sewing



I had a fun weekend of sewing because I wasn't feeling well and did not want to spread the germs! So I hunkered down in my sewing room and sewed away both days.


This is a thread catcher by The Sewing Chick that is fun and fast to make. Fussy cutting some cute fabrics makes it extra special.


As usual it takes me a long time to pick out the fabrics and not so much time to sew it up.


 My guild is looking for donations and this just might be the one. Unless I decide to make another...


Aren't these apples cute?


I was struggling with what color to use for the binding and let it sit out overnight.




My friend Carolyn gave me some of her prized Liberty of London scraps because she was sure I would put them to good use! I am so happy she did.


Here is another Quilted Notions Pouch that I made using a vintage feed sack.


I loved how it turned out!


I had to strategically cut the bag to take advantage of the graphics.


It is the perfect size for those little Clover clips.


I also found this in my travels and love how very large (about 20" x 23") and sturdy it is. I did wash it and now have to decide what to make.......a tote seems very predictable. Any thoughts?

  2. Super cute sewing projects! I always love your fabric choices, you must have the BEST stash! And I LOVE the vintage mail bag! My dad was a mail carrier, so I think I’ll be on the lookout for a bag like that.
