Sew Fest continues

It sure was good to get reacquainted with the sewing machine, we've been avoiding each other lately while I have been obsessed with yarn and hook.

By Sunday afternoon I had sewn all the pieces that I cut on Friday night - they are still works in progress.

The 9 patch blocks spun out and now I have an 11 " square. I am thinking this will feature on a bag but more cutting is required and today was all about sewing.

Next I sewed up these two cute little triangle pouches - way easy.

I'm calling these two finished.

This small bag with a front zip pocket is looking very sweet but I need to decide whether it will get a shoulder strap or a short handle - currently we are at a stand off.

Lastly I stitched a lining complete with pocket for my Polka Dot bag.

Now I just need to attach it and as this is a hand project I think that is what I will work on tonight. I need to be finished for NCB this week, right Cathie?

If you're thinking I spent the entire weekend in the craft room you would be correct.
I managed to fit in some hooking as well and only left the room to make coffee and forage for food.
Hope you had a fun weekend doing what you like best.

Love what you are doing over there....I thought I had a pattern for those triangle pouches, where do I find it?

Wendy said...

That quilt is looking gorgeous, great pattern. I love those triangle pouches - was it from a free pattern? I too spent the entire weekend making stuff, pure bliss!

Kathy said...

I saw you did a lot of cutting and continued your sewing into the next day. Good for you!
