I took a short sabbatical from sewing during the holidays and I'm eager to get back to it! I have a few zippered pouches to share that I made as Christmas gifts. I order my zippers from Zipit. My last order came with a little something extra.... a pretty zipper pull! If you look closely you can see it on the pouch below.
Cindy gifted me her leftover Indie "scraps" ( I use that word loosely as the scraps were large) and I made this pouch for my sister. Thank-you, Cindy. You are always so generous.
This was made using scraps from my Chicopee quilt.
My traveling bag is made from a precious stash of fabric from UK friends.
This little polka dot pouch is for a friend and was so fun to make. It's only about 4 inches wide and 3 inches tall. I used this pattern.
I've joined a new bee called Stitch that Stash. It's headed up by the very talented Krista of Krista Stitched. January is my month to be queen bee and I'm starting it off with two 12.5 inch Churn Dash blocks. Some of my favorite quilting is done with traditional blocks and contemporary fabric.
I looked through my stash and chose my Hometown fabric by Sweetwater and used this pattern. I had enough fabric left over to make a tumbler quilt. It feels good to sew with fabric that has been idling on a shelf or in a scrap basket! And that is a goal of mine for 2013!
Happy New Year and see you soon! xxxx
