Early Christmas sewing

I have been working on a collection of Christmas stockings for my Etsy shop over the past few weeks.  They will be listed soon.  I have been using antique quilt block designs, applique, and both machine and hand quilting.  Here is one of them.

Never too early for Christmas Sewing


I pulled out my stash of favorite Christmas fabric prints by Ann Kelle for Robert Kaufman and made some Christmas drawstring bags for my Etsy shop.  I like to sew Christmas all year long!

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.

Tote Bag finish this morning


I finished this tote bag this morning.  I found the pattern while looking on Pinterest - it is the Tessa Basket by http://www.pinkxstitches.blogspot.com/ .  I made it up in all of Emma's favorite colors.

 I have been busy stitching up some samples for my Etsy shop - new fabrics and color combinations for my Owl Tooth Fairy pillow designs.  I think I like the first one best....

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.

Another zippered pouch finish today!  The front has been appliques and embellished with rick rack and buttons and the back has been pieced and quilted.  Fun!
