Good morning,and happy first day of February! This past week I have been working out of my scraps,yea! Before getting to that though,recently we have had some new readers/followers around here which has put the total over the 200 mark. Pretty excited about that :))) so...

Since it is a new month,I wanted to start off by showing my scrap cutting progress. This bin was on the verge of overflowing at the beginning of last month!
This pouch is actually made with some of the same fabrics (on the outside)as my Swoon block. The colors are not showing up correctly though. I was thinking of sending this along with the larger pouch,but unless I can fix the zipper tabs that will not happen :(
After the zipper tabs fail on the above pouch,I decided more practice was in order. (also,I plan on selling these at fairs later this year) So,here are the ten sewn up this week,practice definitely makes better.
Thought you might like to see the main fabrics used for them too. Yes Hot Wheels,as well as a camping themed one too! This last summer several guys stopped by my booth to shop,and I decided that there should be some "guy"fabrics included in my products. Besides,some girls like those things too ;)
All of the above pouches,were made from my smaller than a FQ bin,since I was on a roll...here are another 30 kits all cut and ready to be sewn up! This idea came to me while making the first ten pouches. I like it,and plan on doing this with a lot of my staple items. Although it takes quite a while to do all the cutting,it will be nice to just grab a kit and sew it up.
Hope you have a great weekend,without too much snow or bad weather :) See you tomorrow with my February goals.
