I had a productive weekend with my sewing machine, tackling some patterns from this book. The first project was a "letter satchel" as a birthday present for one of Isabella's friends. It's suppose to be a little place to save your cards and letters--something my girls love to do, and then we end up with papers stuffed into all crevices of their room. I'm hoping to get some made for them as Christmas presents. And my other project was a new fall bag for me, the "mama bag" also from the same book. It's nice and roomy and I can shove all kinds of stuff in it.
(Oh, and if you look carefully at the bottom of this picture you will see "grapevine ball lights" that Tar.get is clearancing out of their "outdoor" section or whatever it's called. I LOVE them and want to tuck them all over the house. They were still $9 for I believe an 8 foot strand, but OH! they are soooo pretty.)
I'm hoping to finish up some corduroy skirts for the girls this evening--I'm "winging" these, which you can do with skirts, since they are basically rectangles sewed together. ;o) According to my Jo.ann's advertisement "September is national sewing month!" so I'm living it up. I think it's also "Sign up for a library card month" so you should do that too if you haven't already. ;o)
Anyway, I'm off, happy Monday to all!
