Once again, I am joining Renee @ Sewn with Grace
I just love her little button. You can click the one on my sidebar or her name above to see what her Sewing Christmas is about.
I made a couple of little zipper bags to put away for Christmas gifts. I love making theses and will fill them with goodies before gifting them.
Back in July I showed you a stack of scraps left from sewing some of my Girlie Girl purses.
I have these left over every time I make them and with a few changes these scraps will be made into zipper bags.
This is the pattern and buttons I used along with the scraps.
Of course I found them at my favorite Strawberry Patches.
This is another little zipper bag I made from scraps. Those are all little 2" or smaller squares pieced together.
This pattern found in a past Quilts and More magazine. As I have told you before, I always find a project in that magazine and look forward to finding a new one on the magazine rack.
This little bag was one of the things I made from the scraps of this skirt I showed you recently that I made for my granddaughter, Kobi for Wrangler Fridays at her school. (Whoa, that was a long sentence)
I bought a total of 2 yds. and had tons of left over fabric.
Also, from those scraps, I made over 30 of these pins and hair clips, which Kobi and her Mom have been selling at her school.
I also made three Girlie Girl Bags and put a pinwheel hair clip on each one.
Now, I'll show you what is left of those scraps
Yep! That's all, folks. Now what could I make from those 10 little pieces. Guess I have to give up on those.
But I have made a commitment to use up some of the fabric I have. It really is a satisfying feeling to use up something you have.
I have to tell you, this will be difficult, because I ususally make a weekly trip to my favorite Strawberry Patches to pick up and take in projects for the store. There are soooo many beautiful new fabrics practically daily.
So...I may have to fall off my commitment wagon a few times between now and Christmas. If I do, I will be sure and confess here and show you how hard it was to resist. LOL
Now, I'm off to finish a cute curtain I am making for a nursery.
I have to give back the scraps from his project, but will show you the finished curtain soon.
God is Good!!
Life is Good!!
