As you know, May is Birthday Season around here, so I've been sewing like crazy. Here's the latest:
I finally bought Weekend Sewing by Heather Ross. The large Everything Tote is a beach bag for my mother in law. The smaller version is for my niece. I love, love, love this pattern--both sizes, and I hope to make one for myself one of these days.
Our neighbor across the street is receiving her first communion tomorrow, so I made her a doll. The pattern is from Stitched in Time by Alicia Paulson. A mom from Bobby's preschool class asked me if I would make a bag for her to be a gift for her niece. Pay me? To SEW? Um, yes, please! If the economy were better (and Rob were employed), I'd seriously consider making a whole bunch of bags and hitting the craft show circuit.
And this is a linen tote...this was originally going to be the beach bag for my m-i-l, but it came out way smaller than I'd envisioned. Lack of foresight on my part...so I will find another home for this one. Possibly on my shoulder.
