Holiday Sewing

I just finished sewing my first round of Christmas presents. Making things for people on my holiday list is so much more fun than shopping! I call these Sorority Sister Shoe Sacs...... I followed the tutorial and didn't put a lining in but I don't like the raw edges that you see when you open up the bag. Next time I think I'll have to line them or sew it somehow so there are no raw edges. One gift down! Hope you are enjoying your holiday sewing.

I'm BACK....

I'm Back....After several hospital stays and the birth of my newest addition I've been holed up in my home venturing out to complete only the most necessary of tasks. However, of late, I've gotten out a bit more and realized how much I missed getting together with friends and sharing ideas and inspirations.
I actually finished a few little sewing projects lately and it fueled my motivation to work on more! I'll start posting on my blog site again and hopefully plan some get togethers for the local sewing club soon.
If you have any new projects that you've completed I'd love to see pictures and if you have an idea or pattern / tutorial to share with us please forward them to them to me at
Pictured is one of the sewing projects I've finished lately. The Monkey Sac; a laundry bag for my littlest one.
Check back soon for more idea posts, projects, tutorials and information on local meetings.
