I had fun sewing with D yesterday. We spent about 8 hours playing with fabric and eating Chinese food. Her cat was fascinated with my sewing machine traveling case. She kept hopping in and out of it a few times.
My first project of the day was storage cubes from Crazy Mom Quilts. Instead of using the vinyl as a place to put a label I added one of my stitcheries and sewed it in. I started a second basket, but had problems with the vinyl and need to do some unsewing on it.
Project #2 was grocery totes. The pattern came from Valori Wells. I had three of them ready to sew, but only made one. I added a pocket to the front of it for keys and a phone.
This last tote was a pattern I purchased from Jo-Ann Fabrics. The pattern was easy to follow. I'm not quite done with it yet. I'm going to add some applique to it. I quilted it instead of using interfacing. I thought the bag would be stiffer. It isn't. It is roomy though and will make a great shopping bag.
Sunday I have the day off and will spend it playing in my studio. Yippee!
