Two Weeks

With only two weeks until Christmas, I am busy making zippered pouches as gift bags. The pattern for these pouches is from Marcela’s Purse. There are a couple of more pouches on this site that I plan to try out. Marcela posts great tutorials.

I had purchased some OdiCoat gel coating to make the fabric water proof. I decided not to use it for these pouches. The process of coating would add time that I do not have to get these pouches completed. I will try the gel coating on some other bags at a later date.
For now, I am busy making personalized bags. My brother has two adorable and very spoiled dogs, Atticus and Humphrey. I used some paw print fabric to make a doggie treat bag and some scarves for the two furry characters.

I have a few more pouches to make before I can start filling them. Busy, but happy times.

 

Still Raining

It is still raining, and since I am stuck inside, I decided to get busy on some small projects. One of the projects is a small zipper tote. I followed the tutorial by Jenny Doan at Missouri Star. I had some of the sewing notion print fabric leftover, so I made two small zippered pouches.

Sewing Notion Pouches


Zippered Pouch
These pouches will come in handy tomorrow. If we get out of the low water crossing and flood alert, I will be meeting two of my friends at Las Colchas. Francine, the owner of Las Colchas, is opening her shop on Monday to give us sewing lessons. It has been years since I made clothes for myself. I need a refresher on how to fit the pattern and make necklines and sleeves. It should be a fun day…if it stops raining!
I also made some small zipper-less pouches. Vanessa, at Crafty Gemini, has a tutorial for these small pouches. These pouches are good stash busters. I plan to gift them at a luncheon I will be attending.

It has been a productive Sunday.
I hope you have enjoyed your day.
