I have been sewing more small projects. Currently I'm working on making several "Everyday Bags" from Sherri McConnell's A Quilting Life book. This is a great pattern and it is perfect for using up those single charm packs that you have in your stash or scraps from your favorite fabric lines.
I made this one for my niece Mackenzie. Purple, cats, and owls--a perfect combination in my opinion. I had a random charm pack from a Moda line called "Cosmic Cats" (from several years ago) and used Moda Bella solid in Periwinkle from my Daydreams quilt. The owl lining fabric was leftover from an apron that I made Mackenzie.
These bags are the perfect size for toting projects, books, toys, etc. The interior has a nice pocket for keys, phone, or as Mackenzie says "George Washingtons" (that's what she calls quarters--cracks me up).
I'm nearly finished with my second bag for Cameron and I'll post that next.
The cats love sleeping, sunbathing, and watching the birds from the windowsill in the bedroom.
