Sock Monkey Drawstring Bag

 I finished this Sock Monkey themed drawstring bag over the weekend.  Wouldn't it be cute holding a small boy's special birthday gift?  He could also use it to store his toys and gadgets after the party is over.  I have a couple for sale now in my Etsy shop and they come with a matching personalized gift tag.

Zippered Pouch - Owl in dotted fabrics

Another finish from the weekend - a little (6 inches tall and 9 inches wide) zippered pouch that I appliqued the front with a cute owl and quilted the back.  All fabrics are dotted.  I really like the combination of aqua, brown, orange and green.

Early morning sewing

I started sewing early this morning and finished up a few more quilted dtawstring bags.  I love to sew in the early morning hours before anyone else is up and about.

Froggy Zippered Pouch

I finished another zippered pouch today.  It has an appliqued front and pieced and quilted back.  I have spent hours reviewing zippered pouch techniques on Pinterest.  I think I have a combination that works for me.

Zippered Pouch

I started this cute little zippered pouch a while back and just finished it up.  The front was pieced and then appliqued and embroidered with my own design and I then added a pieced and quilted back.  This little one of a kind pouch is now listed for sale in my Etsy shop and waiting for a home.

Quilted Drawstring Bags

I have been working on some cute quilted drawstring bags for my Etsy shop.  I love making these and especially picking out fun bright color and pattern combinations.  So far, I have finished 2 different bags and custom designed tags to go with them.  I based these bags on a tutorial by incolororder.com .
