I hope the weekend was enjoyable for you as it was for me. I spent a good amount of time in my sewing room (I just LOVE it there!). I finished up a couple pair of sleeping shorts for two of my besties for Valentine's day. Not that we usually exchange gifts but I had this idea and needed an excuse to sew. Here they are,
|Pink. More Pink. Semi-patchwork. Drawstring. One Button.|
|White with Red Dots All Over. Drawstring. One Button.|
They haven't seen them yet, in person that is. I sent them to this blog to check them out!
Next I made a simple bag. Very simple. I decided to make it way harder than necessary! I really wanted to see how well my seam ripper worked. (by the way, it works great!). It was a simple drawstring type of bag that I'm going to package my items in as well as sell sets of them in my shop. Everyone can use re-usable bags, right? Well, at the rate I'm going, no one will get to use them. Maybe tomorrow I'll have a fresher outlook on those bags.
This evening I wanted to use my new zippers that I received the other day from this ETSY SHOP. I had this idea for a half rounded zippered pouchs. I also wanted to include a divider in the middle and I wanted to quilt it. So I started cutting and sewing. Ripping out a bit and sewing again. Opps, ripped out some more and sewed it back up. Yay, Finally I finished! I was able to post to my shop. Here it is:
|Zippered Flamingo Print Make-Up Pouch|
|Inside Of Pouch - Phone Inside But Still Lots Of Room!|
|Green Flamingo Fabric Divider Inside Pouch|
At least I was able to finish this! I will streamline the next one I make and probably offer a couple different sizes.
Now that I've written this new post, the picture of the Orange tree in my yard will move lower! I'd better insert a picture of the pretty pink roses next to the orange & lemon trees.
|I know this could be a little more focused but aren't they pretty? Especially for mid Feb.|
