Scrap sewing therapy was just the trick. I had FUN making this!
My Scrappy Star pouch is based off of Jeni's tutorial, with a pair of wonky stars gracing front and back. It all started with...
that looming pile of triangles. Yes, I bravely unleashed the triangle-shaped scraps whose uncanny growth strikes fear. But not this time. Each star takes 8 teeny triangle points. That's a small scrappy victory, folks. And I have plans for yet more.
Here we are on the other side. That's Ledger from Architextures framing the stars, with Essex Putty up top.
I was also quite tickled to use that polka dot for lining. The colors were perfect! See, now that's what happens when you keep a fabric stash. (OK, sometimes, that happens....)
Oh, and I also started the Christmas tree garland! The kids are intrigued and besotted yet again by the fabric die cutter. Yay!
I picked up Ledger in multi and gray, plus this pretty Valentina print all from Lark Cottons. The Architextures collection is flying out, but she'll be restocked soon. My next bag is based off Valentina. Crossing fingers it turns out as well!
Hope you all get to do some FUN sewing today too. It's totally the way to start a week! Oh, also, if you have a values quilt to share, do stop by Where the Orchids Grow to link up. Happy Monday!
