2015 Finishes

Happy New Year!!! As I reflect back on my sewing accomplishments this past year I didn't realize how much I had finished. I sewed quite a bit more clothing than my usual Halloween costumes.

Fabric Baskets

These baskets are a snap to put together. I decided on how big I would like to make them and did a sample on muslin to make sure I got it right. These are a good size for organizing fabrics or sewing supplies. I love these prints from Dena Designs London collection paired with solids.

Zipper Pouch and a Pincushion

I love making pouches and accessories. This was for my swap partner. I also included small treats that I forgot to take a picture of.  I made three of these pincushions, one was for me to keep and two were for swaps I joined.

This zippered pouch was fun to put together with the ruffles. I love ruffles. They add a fun touch to bags and accessories.  I also made a key fob with some small strips of fabric I had left over from other projects. This was a lot of florals but my partner says she loves floral prints. This was a lot of sewing for me but I am so glad to have a chance to sit down and sew. I hope you are having fun sewing and shopping this Christmas season. There is nothing like a handmade Christmas.

Sewing Machine Cover

This is my second year joining Cheryll for the Santa Sack Swap. The participants were to make each other 6 gifts. One of those gifts had to be a sack, bag or stocking. My partner and I decided to do something different and make each other a sewing machine cover.

Santa Sack Swap 2015

I joined a couple of swaps this year and this was the last one. This is a Santa Sack Swap that Cheryll hosts every year. This was my second year participating and it has been fun sewing for my partner Sherry and also receiving this beautiful package.
