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.


  1. Wow, they are all cute. I need a new lunch bag and don't want to pay $20 plus for the uninspiring ones I have seen. Yes, tired of the freezing temps and trying to declutter our home after my guys have switched rooms (3 rooms involved.)

  2. Love the bags - I'll need a tutorial when I'm back from the sunny south - ha! Donna
