A couple of Christmas gifts finished...

Clearly Blog Posting Month didn't do much for my consistency!  I posted every day for a month and then disappeared for a week and a half!  I've been doing lots of Christmas sewing, but much of what I've made is unfinished for lack of some simple little piece- A pillow needs filling, a skirt needs hemming...  I put together little bags for each to-be-made gift with all the supplies I need for that item so that when I'm ready to start something I have everything I need!  Tonight is Friday Night Sew-In so I'm hoping to get lots of those little finishes taken care of. 

But I did finish a few things- First is an Amy Butler Birdie Sling Bag that I have fallen in LOVE with!  Maybe its intended recipient will just hate it and I'll have to keep it.  If not, I think I have enough of both fabrics left to make another!  The top is brushed canvas and the body is from Denyse Schmidt's County Fair line.

The other finish is a Buttercup Bag- I love making these for gifts.  Everyone needs a small bag sometimes, and I think the bright colorful fabric is perfect for the recipient. I have no idea what the fabric is, it was from the "free to good home" pile at my sewing class.  If you love it and must have some, let me know, I've got YARDS of it!  It's denim.

Hopefully more to post soon!  I hope your holiday crafting is going smoothly!


  1. Adorable! I've never gotten around to trying that Buttercup bag, though I printed the pattern eons ago. You're making me want to pick it up now!


Thanks so much for visiting!!!
