Small Sewing Projects // Sewn


I’ve spent some time in the last week sewing things other than 100 Quilts quilts. Amazing! Linen napkins and a Ruby Star Spring (by Melody Miller) sewing pouch for my sister in law–I love the texture/hand of RSS.

A Loulouthi (by Anna Maria Horner) library tote for me, because I only had an hour, inspired by the Magnolia Lane (by Laura Gunn) bag made below for a good friend’s birthday. And now, back to 100 Quilts quilting. It is a Keyka Lou downloadable pattern–Grocery Bag I believe. Well written, simple directions and a deadline help speed things up!

    It really did only take an hour. It’s a Keyka Lou pattern–Grocery bag I think. I timed myself–I had to run to pick my son up from school :)

    Love the tote – great use of Loulouthi and such a cute little zip!

    Love the little pouch, and love that turquoise zipper. Sometimes it’s nice to do some other sewing, isn’t it?

    I found you from Amylouwho – I love your projects! It’s nice finishing a non-quilt sometimes, especially when you get to wear the finished product around town (unlike a quilt)!

    you’ve been busy! I love how those little projects together so much faster than a quilt! The bags are my favorite I’ll have to put that pattern away for a rainy day!
