CG Jan/Feb Finishes

These are the projects I did for January and February. I made this patchwork tote with a zipper opening. I have been working on various ways to insert zippers to my bags. This is the second one I did. I've been doing a bit of zipper bags and it's to the point where I am very happy with it.


I also managed to make myself a new top. This one is pretty easy to put together. 


This is a up-cycled pouch I made using our son's old pair of pants. He wanted a grey pouch so his old pants came in very handy.


At the end of the year, one of our children decided that I needed to make new oven mitts so while in the kitchen, there was an accident with the old oven mitts so therefore I made two of these oven mitts.
 to replace the old ones.


That's all I have for the last two months. I really need to get working on some quilts and tutorials that have been waiting for me. Check out Kelly's blog to see what the Charming Girls have been up to.

Love your patchwork tote! I haven't done a zippered closure on a tote yet. Will have to give it a try!

I want a new sewing machine sooooo bad, so I can start doing more things too.
Yet, right now we are spending some much needed money on getting supplies and such so my poor hubby can have a hobby. He really does deserve it, so I'll be patient and wait. Maybe next year I'll get a new sewing machine.
Until then love looking at the projects you've completed. They all look so great.

Your tote turned out great - lovely fabrics. And recycling for the pouch - that was good thinking! New blouse - they are fun to make aren't they?
