It has been a while since I have had time to sit at my sewing machine and make something and my mind is full of ideas and projects. This always happens when I am unable to find time to craft---my craft-wheels get to turnin'!
The first must-do was a little bag for Aubry to take to church. Each week she sits there with a pile of loose papers and pencils and crayons and books, and she tends to get a little cranky when it comes time to gather her goods and go home. So I made her a "church-bag", as she is calling it. It is a messenger-style bag made with the adorable Heather Ross fabric that I received from Sew, Mama, Sew a while ago.
My favorite part is the pocket. There is a tiny Volkwagen van on it:
I also made a little baby blanket using "Dick and Jane" fabric that I bought, not because I was making something for a specific someone, but because I thought the fabric was way too cute! (Sorry for the wrinkly photo!)
After Thanksgiving I will be in full crafting mode for Christmas. I am hoping that a certain friend and I will be having some sewing-dates to make the time more worthwhile.
Anybody else want to join us?
