Sewing

I wanted to share a few of the projects that I've worked on in the last month or so. Sewing still remains rather frustrating to me and at times I continue to wonder why I torture myself so! First is a tote bag adapated from Last Minute Patchwork & Quilted Gifts. I made three of these, two for gifts. My attempts to attach snaps with my Crop A Dile were not successful, so I just sewed some ribbon inside the top in order provide a way to close the bag.



My little nephew up north recently celebrated a birthday and I sewed two owls for him, adapted from some free patterns on the web. Apparently he has joined the owl craze that is sweeping the nation.



And lastly, I took a binding class at a local quilt shop a few weeks ago and started out small with potholders, also gifts. I really don't like to bind, but it's nice to finally know how to do it!
Any projects you'd like to share?

I share your sewing frustration but I'm impressed with your results! I'm working on some writing projects right now so my crafting has been put on hold.

Hi Kristina,
I think you are doing a great job on your sewing, I am impressed! I would love to be able to just sit down and sew anything I wanted to, I don't think that will ever happen. I hope you are having a good week.
Hugs,
Kathy
