Sew & Tell Friday

Thanks goodness it's Friday!

I was up late sewing last night, which is becoming the norm for me on the night before Sew & Tell Friday. But it's just so satisfying to end the week with a nice finish!

First I finished my Nicey Jane Grocery Bag Dispensers:


And since this "recipe" was from the Moda Bake Shop, it only seemed appropriate to use some Moda twill tape for the hanging tab.



I finished these before midnight (which is kind of early for me on a Sew & Tell Friday "eve"), so I decided to start a whole new project and whip up this adorable Patchwork Pencil Pouch:



This pouch was designed by Vanessa over at Little Big Girl Studio, and the awesome tutorial can be found here.  It's quick and fun!  Even the zipper was super easy to install.

This project was perfect for using just the tiniest bit of Verna fabric from my stash, and I just love patchwork.



I hope you all have a fabulous weekend.

Happy sewing!

Mary

  1. LOVE it!!! You picked some really cute springy prints. I might have to do a Flickr pool for these. . .


    Your grocery bag dispensers are awesome as well. I'd probably have to make about 20 to house all the bags floating around my house ;)

  15. I love your finishes this week!! I think the fabric choices probably swayed me! I need to go make myself a new grocery bag holder now, mine is looking a bit drab compared to your pretty ones.
