The Sewing News

I’ve been on a sewing kick lately, among a number of other creative projects currently on the go and pending. I am really trying to use up “stash” items on hand: fabric remnants and lengths, yarn, beads,notions.

It’s kind of fun to take a material and then decide what to make, rather than the other way around. 😉


I made these little gift bags out of a remnant of animal print fabric I’ve had for a while. The ties are all from short lengths of ribbon,lace and bias tape. I think they’re kind of cute. And perfect for using with earring orders and gifts.

I’m also finishing up a sundress; I guess there’s always next year LOL. Using up some small remnants for hair scrunchies.

 On the yarn front, I have almost completed another Triangle Shawl, this time in Lopi Fire Tweed.

What are you working on right now?

Happy Crafting and Weekend.

PS: Thanks Ruinwen, for your kind words over at your blog today.

I’m so glad you liked the earrings and the journal.

  2. You are amazing. These are wonderful bags. I love what you create. Pure beauty.

  3. What lovely little bags! You are always making something beautiful! 🙂

    Hi SandyC, You are too kind. You create pure beauty with your words. Treasures.

    Hi Ruinwen, I was sorry I didn’t have these complete when I sent out your earrings. That’s wonderful about the shawl. I hope you share a pic too.
