I wanted something quick and easy to sew that I could whip up with the meager supplies I had available and this kitty that I found on the Amy Butler Design website was it. I showed the toddler this morning, who thinks it’s fantastic. As she does with any animal, she started mooing.

This turned out to be a real pain to sew, especially when it came to attaching the handles to the bag. Eh, live and learn. I don’t think I’m happy with it enough to gift it but it will be just fine for a bag for the toddler if I fill it with an old wallet and some keys. She’ll be entertained for hours.

This is what I’ve been doing all day. It is going to be a Christmas present for a good friend of mine. The project is stalled for the moment however as it’s Christmas Eve and a Sunday and I need some magnetic snaps. I sure hope the fabric store is open on Wednesday, I hate having this unfinished.

You can find the tutorial for this bag here.

This bag took a lot of work. I spent hours deliberating over the pattern pieces. It was just going to be a trail run but I’m so gosh-darn proud of it I think I will be carrying it around everywhere for a little while.

I used a combination of this and this tutorial for the bag and I used this tutorial for the zipper pocket in the flap.

Next up I’m working on making this bag from this fabric. I’ve just about finished the handles. I started those first because they seemed the trickiest part of the bag but they were easier than I expected.

It took me so, so long to sew this hat. It did get easier as I went, which is good, because I’ll be sewing a bigger one before long.

It’s been a productive weekend. I made this camera cozy using this tutorial from craftster. My first attempt I tried to make from memory and not surprisingly I messed it up. This, my second attempt, was also almost too much for my pregnancy brain to figure out, even with the instructions right in front of me.  However, it did finally come together.

I finally procured some real freezer paper and had a bit of fun courtesy of The Domestic Diva. Now I’m searching the house for more items to decorate.
