Weekend sewing

First up is this little owlie bag that started out as a quilt block
which you can check out here
Last night I decided that it was going to be a bag,so set about
making that happen.
The inside is a dark brown herb fabric,I know that herbs and owl's
have nothing in common,but that was the only dark brown fabric
in my stash.  There is also a pocket inside,that will hold a cell
phone or keys or whatever.
This would make a great bag for taking a smaller craft/sewing
project with you on the go :)

Next up,something that has been on my "want to make"list for
a while now.
Love how both this and the one below turned out :)
Although I still have plenty of room for improvement in the
zipper department!
That being said,I am improving.

Notice the zipper pulls on these little cuties?
Well I have had these metal bobbins hanging around since I purchased
my Janome a few years ago.  Since it uses plastic bobbins I no longer
use these.  However,I did not want to throw them away.  I just kept
thinking that they could be useful again.
Sew when making the above bag it hit me!
Don't those sprockets on the fabric look like bobbins?  Or maybe they
are bobbins!
Anyway there are still 3 of these little bags awaiting my return to the sewing room.
Hope you all had a great weekend & have a even better week ahead :)


  1. I just wanted you to know that I've awarded you the Versatile Blogger award :) You can check it out on my blog

  2. Blocks are great for bags aren't they! Your little bags are so neat and the one fabric really does look like bobbins. Very creative to use the bobbins on the ties too!

  3. I LOVE the zipper pulls! So creative! Can't wait to get started on the owl blocks :)
