what the what?

Man alive, what a super-busy time of year!! I've made so many projects for other people (gifts), not to mention all the things I have to do for my real job. Yeah, I have a real job - I know, its a bummer.
** but seriously, I love my job. Sometimes it just takes a lot time. sigh. **

I've made several projects for special people, and I wish I had time to make more. But what I really need to do is make myself stop doing things for other people (but its so FUN) and make things for myself and the baby. That will be fun too. I promise.

So here are the things I've made recently that are not on my make-for-baby list...

Classic Totes from Sew, Mama, Sew!
I made this first one at home and then the second one at one of my group sewing parties. They turned out great and I'm already using them at the grocery store. I have several more cut out that just need sewing. I figure this will be useful to me when I'm a mom too, so I shouldn't feel guilty....

Here is the birthday present bag (Margaret bag) that I teased you with in a previous post:

I made another Emmeline Apron for a friend's wedding shower. It turned out really cute and I think she really liked it!

I especially liked the swirl patterns! I hope these pics didn't turn out too crappy. I had to use a school camera since I forgot mine today... :P

I also made the Amy Butler swing bag for another friend who lent me a ton of maternity clothes. She loves orange and turtles, so I am really pleased with how it turned out. I think I will do a few things differently next time I make this bag, but it went really well for the first time using this pattern.

Look at those turtle peeking from the inside. So sweet!!

I think she likes it.... :)

Next on the list: baby/mommy stuff. Seriously this time.


  1. I love the Margaret bag, and the orange patterned fabric you used on the swing bag - so cute!!

  2. Wow! You've been busy. The turtles in the swing bag are adorable!

  3. Dang! I really love that apron pattern! They turned out really well!
