Works in Progress

This last week has been a good week for getting things done. I got my Betty Bowler bag finished late last week. It came out really nicely. The only thing I would change about the pattern, would be to use a heavier interfacing so that the bag would hold it’s shape a little better.

I also made myself a second Scout Tee. This one was in a poplin weight cotton from the August line of Cotton+Steel. – more about this top later.

I’ve made myself a couple hot pads from orphan blocks left over from a quilt I made for mom. – more about these later.

And last, but not least, I made myself up a little pouch for keeping some of the odds and ends I carry in my bags. It will keep them from getting lost in a jumbled mess on the bottom of my bag, and it’s super cut in matching fabric to my Betty Bowler.

Now, I do have to admit, that while I’ve gotten all of these cute little projects done, I haven’t touched any of my quilts. I’m hoping to do a little work on them in the coming week.

What are you working on right now?

Listen While You Work

As a sewist, and general creative person, I find that I need some background noise while I work. A little something to distract from all of the other ideas floating around in my head. I have a playlist that I … Continue reading
