Lots of Sewing Projects

I hope everyone is having a wonderful New Year. Tomorrow is going to be my last day before I go back to work. The super taxing 5 hour a week job. How will I survive?! Right now, I am just praying to get over this horrid cold I’ve been suffering through. It’ll be nice to breathe with my nose again. I am very happy to say my tail bone is feeling much better.

I think I’ve done pretty well with my plan to sew my way through my stash. I’ve all but finished 3 tops (2 need buttons and buttonholes), 2 skirts, 2 little girl nightgowns,1 bag and cut out another top. I think my plan now will be to finish up some projects. There was a bag on the sewing machine when I started my foray a couple weeks ago. It is a much more involved project than the bag I whipped out today. Here are the projects I’ve finished since I last posted:

The black top the that was kicking my a** the last time I was here. When it has buttons we’ll see if I can wear it out in public.

This pink one is the same pattern, but with longer sleeves. It is the third top I’ve made with this pattern. I love it. It is Simplicity 2936.

This bag came from the last summer’s June issue of McCall’s Quilting. The pictures that show how to stuff it inside the carrying pocket were a bit confusing to me. But the instructions were fine. It is supposed to be a shopping bag. There are also supposed to be buttons on it to close it. I haven’t picked them out of the button box yet, though.

The next top will be made with the shirt pattern from the Sewing U book by Wendy Mullin (as in Built By Wendy). The skirt pattern was great, so I have high hopes about the other patterns. I’d like to have her book on knits, too.

Maybe I will show some of my knitting next post…

Hey, that bag is awesome! You should sell your stuff, if you don't already. I would definitely buy a bag like that on etsy, if you posted it. Anyway, feel free to check out my blog as well, I mostly write astrology/crafts, etc:
