This was an unproductive weekend.
I'm at the point with sewing and embroidering where I want to make and do everything. My walls would be embroidered over a French seam if it were possible. But this point is really overwhelming because I can't pick just one thing to make. I have a lot of different projects cut out--a Cambie dress, a dress for the shop, lots of little bags--but why work on those when I can do something new? I have to really force myself to sit down, take a second and finish up a WIP before they take over my sewing space.
I did do a few good things this weekend, such as:
More Elizabeth Hartman Perfect Zip Bags! I started embroidering these while I was in Beaufort, and I bought all the fabric at Tabby. The scissor bag uses two Momo Half Moon Modern prints (the inside is orange polka dots) and a stitched design from Sublime Stitching's Craftopia pattern. That's my new embroidery bag, which works out really well; for example, I wasn't quite finished with a project last night, so I put it (in the hoop), the floss and the needle all in the bag and zipped it up! No little Eleanor paws will find that project!
The other bag uses two Stof prints and a Craftopia pattern as well. This isn't a great picture, but you can kinda see the yarn ball in the bottom corner, which I thought was too cute with the sheep. This is a knitting bag for my mom, which means that, officially, the holiday season has begun--this is the first Christmas gift of 2012. Holy moly. I want to make her an embroidery bag as well, but I think I'm going to wait for the new Aneela Hoey line Sew Stitchy, which you can see here.
These definitely aren't perfect, but I don't even care. They're so cheery!
What'd you make this weekend?
