I made myself a new little bag for Spring. It's much smaller than I'm used to, but I really like it. I'll make a few changes on the next one, but I will definitely make it again. The pattern is from ithinksew.com. Also, I'm trying to fit in a few sewing projects for the house. I made a couple of throw pillows and am hoping to make a couple more. I forgot how easy they are and they add so much to our newly decorated living room. :)
Kim special ordered a few gifts and I actually got them done on time! Molly needed a new pillowcase and she likes it when she can smell Koko, so Koko slept on it before I shipped it. Weird, I know, but we love them! Kim's friend Linda is having some surgery so she wanted a pillowcase for her (Koko did not sleep on this one!). The lady at JoAnn's accidentally cut too much fabric (that NEVER happens!), so I made a little cutie pouch, too.
Here's a little cutie that I made with my new ruffler foot. I plan on giving this bag to my friend, Kelly B. at GVSU. She was kind enough to hand deliver a printer to me when I desperately needed it. Kelly wants to start making wine, so I'm going to put a pretty blue wine bottle in the bag to encourage her to get started. :) This little bag is made with grosgrain ribbons and uses a nice stiff interior fabric so that the bag behaves and stands on its own. It was a fun and quick project to work on.
I wanted to make a little something for Pres. and Mrs. Lubbers and decided on making them some pillowcases for travel pillows. I ordered some memory foam travel pillows and sewed up these cases with handles and an easy zipper closure in back. I'm happy with how they turned out. I hope they like them! My prototype pillow is in a mock quilted fabric. These little pillows are so nice for sitting and reading or behind your back in the car. Not much sewing going on due to a lovely virus that decided to come visit me. Gotta love winter.....
