Santa Bags

I've had this Santa fabric for awhile now and have been looking for a project that showcased it. It paired nicely with this red polka dot fabric, recycled from an apron, to create a bag that fits a couple of picture books just perfectly!

Finished book bag size:  11" x 9.5" x 1.25"

I also used some scraps to create two little drawstring bags

I'm particularly pleased with how finished-looking the drawstring part turned out

Finished drawstring bag size:  4.5" x 5.5"

Zippered Penguin Pouch

I made this zippered pouch for the penguin ornaments I made last Christmas. I'm surprised it didn't occur to me to make a storage bag for them to being with, but recently I've been brainstorming reasons to make bags in order to use recycled zippers. I think this bag will be large enough to store the mini tree skirt and little stuffed penguin tree topper as well.

I'm particularly please with how the zipper tabs turned out

Finished size: 7.5" x 6.5" x 1"

Hello Kitty Bags

I bought this fabric awhile ago, simply because it was Hello Kitty. I've only used it for one small project so far (though I've made another Hello Kitty bag), so I decided it was time to do something with it. Fortunately there was enough to make two bags for the twins. 

Finished size: 6.5" x 6.5" x 2.5"

Room Sign

I had some letters leftover from making myself a Clemson sweatshirt that I decided I would try and use. Surprisingly, I almost had enough for this sign. I had already used the only M in "Clemson," so the M in "room" is actually a W. One of the Os is actually a Q with the tail cut off, which made it a smidge shorter. The apostrophe is improvised as well since there were only periods. At least there were two Rs. I used fabric left from the airplane quilt. To hang it, there is a sleeve on the back for a dowel.

Finished size: 10" x 15.5"

O Selvedge Tree

A beautiful 60 degree day in March, and what am I doing? Making Christmas decorations naturally.

I'd been saving selvedge for a while and I decided I needed to do something with it. I didn't have all that much, so I vaguely thought I would just make a little pin cushion. Not all the dots were the same length though, so I decided to stack them by length. Once I realized I could make a tree, I was sold. It shifted a bit during sewing, so it's a bit of a wonky tree.

The star at the top was leftover from the 3D ribbon trees. It was not originally a button, so it had to be turned in to one with the assistance of my handy rotary tool.

If you hold it up to the light, it looks like it's snowing!

Finished size: 7" x 11.5"
