I sewed...

Hi Everyone,

I know it is hard to believe but I actually sewed last weekend. I just made this simple zipper bag but 1) It was something I wanted to do and not something I had to do 2) I cut into some stash that I adore 3) I got to use the latest fabric from the shop Essex Linen

I cut into my precious Melody Miller Typewriters.... eep.... and matched them with the Medium Aqua linen. I only have two colors of Linen so far (I was overwhelmed at Market and couldn't make a decision) but I will be adding more in the next couple weeks. 

 I made this for my Pillow Talk Swap Partner to send along with her Pillow.

I loved how this Erin McMorris fabric went with it so that is the lining. It has a fun orange zipper.

Don't forget about the book tour... today is Sally's turn.

  1. What a cute zip pouch! I love that typewriter fabric. I only have one tiny scrap... a small piece of one typewriter... and I finally found a use for it this weekend. I'm making a tiny messenger/cross-body bag for my trip to Disneyland next week. It was a perfect addition to the pieced front flap. :)
