Cookie cutter bag

If you've been reading this blog for any length of time, you know I like to make bags for things, particularly drawstring bags... and that I like to label things. Here's my latest bag, made out of an old bandana and twill tape, to store my cookie cutters. Pastel hearts, very 1990.

Pencil bag

Zach requested a pencil bag for school so I made him a version of this bag by Two Little Banshees and gave it to him for his birthday.

I made a few changes to her tutorial; I used upholstery fabric and serged the inside seams so they wouldn't fray. I also put a large eyelet in the corner so that Zach could clip it onto his back pack, and monogrammed it with his initials. I reinforced the fabric around the eyelet and monogram with permanent stabilizer.

I think the zipper kind of looks like a mouth...which gives me an idea for another project...

Between nap time and nursing, I snuck in a little embroidery and sewing...

A little drawstring bag to hold ear plugs. I have this in our guest room. Even if I'm not getting any sleep, maybe our guests still can.
