gifted!

Just in time, I made one last drawstring pouch.

one last patchwork pouch

Made mostly from scraps in colors to match my girlfriend's new craft room.  Photographed in the wee hours of the morning before we met up for a Charlotte road trip to the Ikea, Anthropologie, Cheesecake Factory... need I say more?  Oh, and to get my sewing machine fixed.

Don't worry, we bought LOTS of great furniture for her craft room.  Check, check.  And, I somehow resisted buying a cool, retro highchair that I certainly don't need, but certainly want to need. 

gifted!

Three friends, three bags, three bars of chocolate.  Gifting is off to a sweet start.  Happy elving!

    1. My Pfaff Smarter has had tension troubles since summer. I only finally got over to Charlotte to fix it. He fixed it fast... but will it last?

  4. Lovely bags, I have got to make some of those! One problem, now I am scheming about giving away my tacky fisher price high chair and taking a ride over to ikea! Third baby on the way, at least, but not exactly a "need"!

  5. I just made three of these tabs too-for gifts! I'm giving them to knitters, so I added a grommet for the yarn to be pulled through. I'm ridiculously excited to give them to my friends!

  8. I just made three drawstring bags last night. All done except the drawstrings. I just used whole pieces of fabric. I did not get fancy like you did.

    1. Oh, the whole cloth versions are pretty too! I just wanted to use scraps. Scraps always feel so fun, but they do take awhile to work through =)

  9. Love these bags. I found two more people to gift to, so now I have a reason to make some patchwork drawstring bags. I think we are going out to dinner tonight, I may just have to suggest Cheesecake Factory - yum!

  11. I've made about eight of those bags - all for knitters. Yours are so pretty; I love the patchwork! And your photos are great - at night? With a flash? Who needs daylight?? Good job.

  12. Oh, goodness! I live in Charlotte and use the same Pfaff dealer and the same IKEA. What a small world. I love the bag by the way. (And he is super fast. I brought my Pfaff into him the other day and he made my head spin the way he moved so quickly...)

  14. Those are such pretty drawstring bags! I confess I always think of drawstring bags as boring but you've changed my mind :)
