Sewing the days away

I've had a blast creating recently, and by the looks of my house I need to do a bit less creating and a little more cleaning. Oh well that's what tomorrow is for.

These fuzzy towels are on their way to their new home.

I had a request for an apron so I whipped this baby out yesterday. I also discovered I love aprons and now have so many ideas swirling through my brain, but I need to get my Etsy shop going first. I'm almost done taking pictures, now I just need to spend some time editing them, and then I can post them. It's a lot of work.

And if I didn't already have enough to do I spotted the perfect fabric to make a new bag this weekend, I've been wanting to make one for a while. It has several pockets, practical and cute. I'm excited to have a cute bag again. I'm sure our backpack will enjoy a little rest.

My favorite part of my new bag is the covered button. I saw this idea several months ago and tucked the idea away and during Calvin's 3 hour nap today I had the brilliant idea to add a button. I am so glad he took a long nap because it gave me time to finish my bag.
I'm working on a tutorial on how to make this bag. I hope to have it up next week at Effortless Savings.

You are totally my sewing idol. I would LOVE to be able to sew but at this phase in my life, I just don't have the time. I love seeing all your projects. And I agree with Sherry, that bag is adorable!
