Box Bag

Lest ye think that I hath forgotten...

Warning...these are addictive. You cannot make just one! The one on the left is the gift I had for our Holiday Gathering. I enlarged the rectangle for the dance bag on the right.

And some alterations on the original pattern instructions posted by Desi...

Holiday Party

Hello, Sew-Incredible-Sisters,
We had a wonderful time at Lucretia's house last night and missed all of you who could not come. Here are some pictures from the party. I wish I had thought to photo those cool gifts we exchanged. The hotly-contested red carry-all went to Elleen, I think. She was pretty quiet about it. Apologies to Colleen and Gail, who also were there. Hope everyone has a peaceful break coming up. Martha

Link for jeans skirt by Barbara Moss

I posted a link from Barbara Moss on how to turning a pair of jeans into a jean skirt. It's on the June 23rd post. Please check it out if you have a pair of jeans you want to turn into an expensive looking skirt like Barbara did.

Bag addiction - like Desi!

Here is one of the sashiko bags I'm currently working on. My husband thinks I'm nuts. I keep making these little gift bags, inspired by Nancy Shriber and her sashiko book 14x14, only mine are much smaller. Maybe I should work on something more useful...nah.

Bags so addictive, you can't make just one...

I found this bag pattern by way of a favorite sewing blog of mine - Stacy Sews. She found this bag pattern, whipped up a few and now she's addicted. I tried them out on Sunday (during my sewing binge) and I can't wait to make more. If I hadn't run out of zippers, I'd have more than just two of them whipped up already :)

Now, get to sewing, girls. One of these little bags stuffed w/ sewing goodies would make a LOVELY gift for our Holiday gift exchange....hint, hint, nudge, nudge....
