Thanks to this marathon sewing, I was able to check a few things off of my list (oh, and rainy days + mailing deadlines = bad pictures, I apologize in advance...):
My package for my partner for Modern She Made Swap is all ready to go! (I even had a small box that I received a few books in from Amazon today that was JUST the right size...score!)
In addition to the bag, I also made a little key fob and zippered pouch. I am working on putting together a tutorial for the pouch as well!
I also completed my blocks for do.Good Stitches. I really liked how these turned out and they were really easy to put together. The block is called Radiant Ring, and we used the tutorial at Don't Call Me Betsy to make them.
I also got some progress made on a few other items, but having these two things ready to put in the mail tomorrow is a HUGE relief...I was starting to feel the pressure of getting it all done! So big shout out to Beryl for helping make it happen.
In other exciting news, I just read about the Purse Palooza (I keep wanting to call it "Pursealooza"...doesn't quite have the same ring to it, does it?) that is being held through June at Sew Sweetness. Now, as you might already know, I'm pretty obsessed with making bags, so this is right up my alley. I have a baby bag that I'm just getting started on cutting pieces out for, and plans for The Chelsea Bag by Vanessa Christenson, totally perfect timing! I realized while planning these bags that I've never actually made a bag for my self, though I've made plenty of bags as gifts! I think it's high time I make some for myself, don't you??
I hope you all had a fun, relaxing, productive holiday weekend!
