Sewing Pouches and a Dress...
I was given a lovely zippered box pouch by my blog friend Robbie of Robbies Paw Prints and I shared it here. I love it sew much I requested Robbie share the tutorial with me. She did and this is the link. I just had to make one...or two...or four. After all I have November birthdays to prepare for.
Once I had them all sewn I didn't feel they were finished. Oh Yeah! Get out the beads! Having my beads in my new/old printer drawers and all organized I am able to focus on just what I need to make beaded zipper pulls for each pouch.
Here you can see them a little better and if you click on each photo they will enlarge. Now I feel like my double double toil and trouble pouches are completed and ready for gifting.
While I was cutting out the blue fabrics for the pouches I had just enough fabric for a Dress for Around the World Girls. I was wrong. It would have been way too tight around. Sew...I went to my bin of fabrics and found just the right blue in the correct blue family. This just might be my favorite dress to date. Well you do know blue is my absolute favorite color of all time. I love how this dress turned out and I can imagine a girl loving it as much as I do.
We are hoping for some rain tomorrow. Mr. C has been weed-eating and raking and cleaning up the yard. Unfortunately tons of leaves still need to Fall...right where he has raked. I believe he has filled 8 Hefty bags so far.
I am seeing lots of creative Halloween crafting in your blogs. I am inspired and grateful that so much is shared in our blog community. Creative Bliss to each of you...

I love boxy bags like that! Your dresses are adorable, and I'm sure they're greatly appreciated.ReplyDelete
Great bags and perfect gifts. You've sure been busy. All our leaves will not be down until around Thanksgiving. We had our first leave pick up and before they left the street, the yard was full again. Guess we'll cut the grass one last time and mulch.ReplyDelete

The sewing pouches are lovely and the dress really adorable. We had a storm early this morning that caused flooding and has been gloomy all day. Hopefully better tomorrow as I have my first day of volunteering at the pediatric ward of one of the hospitals. :)ReplyDelete
I like making pouches like that too to use instead of gift wrap. Good save of the dress - the joy of having a fabric stash!ReplyDelete
