|Some outdoor decor weight fabric. Said dry clean only and shrank a bit when I ironed the interfacing onto the handle pieces. Hopefully if it ever needs to be washed it will survive ok!|
|Some strange polyester/mix fabric I had in my stash. I only did the standard pockets, plus a zipper pocket. And a magnetic closure.|
Since my sister is living with our Aunt over the summer, I decided to make her a bag too, but wasn't sure what kind of bag would suit her best. So I made her a cloth shopping bag following this tutorial:
|Been hording the blue fabric for quite a while, but it was perfect for my Aunt! The inside was a simple brown print from my stash (the bag is reversible, should she want a more muted look).|
In other news, we've decided to sell our house and move back to the city. This means most of my available time will be spent fixing up/cleaning/organizing the house, rather than working on sewing projects! I've started a small backpack for Arden though, and will post it when I'm finished...but at the rate of 15-30 minutes of working on it a few times a week, it may take many weeks! And though I had been hoping to work on a mini quilt after it, my batting scraps are still at my mom's house, so I'll just brainstorm ideas until I get it back.
