Book bags 13-16

This is the green group of bags.  As you can see from the photo, I worked on these bags in my hotel room at night.  Found a way to carry a sewing machine in my briefcase for those rare trips where I have some free time in the evenings.

Book bags 8-12

These are my favorite bags.  The first one is a vintage Daisy Kingdom fabric and the second one has images of some pretty good desserts.

Book bags 5-7

These bags were made from some vintage fabric and I think they look cute.

Book bags 1-4

In an effort to reduce my scraps and stash, I decided to do more charity sewing.  Our guild is donating book bags to a local shelter so I decided this would be a good project to use up some fabric as well as scraps.  Here is the first four book bags.

Christmas present table runner

I am getting organized for the office holiday decorating contest early by making some table runners to coordinate with the white tree with pink and green lights I bought last year.  This was a kit from Connecting Threads.

Nine pillowcases for charity

I have been doing some sewing and just got around to taking photos of my projects.

Our quilt guild has been donating pillowcases to a local shelter.  I finally got around to making up some of the kits I picked up at a meeting earlier this year.  The main body and band were provided in the kit and we provided the trim.  I used up some yellow fabric in my stash.  My goal is to use up more stash this year as it just seems to grow and grow.
