I usually work three days a week, but this past few weeks due to an office move I have been working four days and on top of it several eleven hour days.  Weekends have not be nice quiet affairs either.  The extent of my sewing time has been walking by the studio door and looking wistfully into it and hoping to eventually do somethings fun.  I did some how manage to make these two little cute bags from a video tutorial  by The Fat Quarter Shop.  In my state of mind the first one I made on the left, I ended up putting the little squares upside down.  Bummer!!!!!  The second one came out well, but I still ended up with a little issue in the the pieces on each side of the zipper did not have a lining.  I guess haste makes waste.  One more try.  
Well here is number three.  Yes this uses those little 2-1/2 inch fabric packs that I managed to pick up several years ago at Quilt Market as give aways.  Love the zippers I got from Zipit on Easy.  All sorts of wonderful colors.
So it isn't much to show for the last couple weeks, but its all I have to show for a very hectic work schedule.  So I am linking up with


  1. It's always hard for me when I'm away from my sewing room too... and always nice when you can find even a little time to make a small finished project! Love these little bags and the fabrics you used! I get my zippers from Zipit too... They're great!!

  2. The bags look great! What colour! I always find that ANY time in my studio is positive time.

    Love the little bags!

    Thank you for posting to TN&TN's WIP Wednesday!]

  3. These are adorable! Looks like a great size for packing small sewing supplies for travel. ... Or for makeup. My daughter's makeup bag ripped, you bag looks the right size for her!
