Just a bit of Sewing

I don't know where all my creativity and ambition has gone.   It must be frozen in all this cold weather.   I haven't really done much since Christmas.

I did a bit of sewing this weekend.   Made a couple makeup bags.   I have never sewn a zipper into a project before, and just figured out  the correct the weight of pellon to incude for stiffness.  Was like Goldilocks, one bag was too stiff and would hold up to a hurricane, one was too soft and wouldn't stand on it's own.   The last is just right. ... and I will make a couple more in different sizes.
They are even lined.
I also made a new lunch bag.   How does one lose their lunch bag??
Maybe this is the tip of the iceberg (get the freezing reference?) and I'll get my mojo back.   Let's hope so.

Moose on the loose

I never showed you these Moose pillows I made before Christmas.
When I initially bought the fabric, I was thinking "reindeer", and didn't realize until I got the fabric home that the print was actually of Moose.    I sewed them up anyway, and used them through Christmas.

Turns out that Moose have more seasonal longevity than Reindeer .. I'm leaving them out for winter!

Bring on 2015

Happy New Year 2015
All I've done since Christmas is sneeze, cough, ache and sleep.   My most ambitious accomplishment has been to take down the Christmas decorations.

I'm wishing for a happy and HEALTHY 2015!!! .... for us all :-)
