Bagged

I’ve spent no time in my sewing room thanks to pre-Holiday craziness, but last night I snuck in to sew up this cute little drawstring bag thanks to Jeni’s fab (and famous) tutorial.

It makes any gift card + candy cane kisses look handmade. :) I really want to make the big one next.

I got this cute stack amidst in the mail the other day. It is my first time with Organic fabrics…and I really love these muted colors. I’m not sure what I’ll do with these yet…they are just so cute (and soft!) they need the perfect project.

In the mean time they are sure cute to look at. These are by Birch Fabrics, the line is called Circa 52 found here, here, or here.

Pin It!

I used Birch organic beach mod 60 for a quilt I made my daughter. Yes, it's pricey, but somehow that print was worth it!

My Mom had made us bags like that for our pink curlers when I was growing up. Darn, now I sound old. I may have to make that bag for her! Doubt she has the curlers, she is sporting a pixie cut now.

Circa 52, as in 1952? I love those fabrics!! I've been looking for 1950s-style fabrics - I hope they are starting to make a comeback! Very cute bag also! Love the gingham with the other fabric - cute choice!

Between facebook, pintrest, and your blog, this is the third time I have seen this little pouch today! That's it. I'm making my own this weekend!

That is way cute! I made fabric bags to be resusable wrapping for my family a few years ago, and have never looked back ;-) I'm glad I'm not the only one having trouble making sewing time with the holiday shenanigans. Speaking of, I'm off to the mall!
