Some completed projects

So I've realized I'm one of those bloggers that don't post anything for like a week and a half and then all of sudden I have so much to share...

Something I have been wanting to create for a long time, and I finally found a great tutorial for it (the link is a .pdf file). It's a thread catcher attached to a weighted pin cushion and a hanging pocket organizer. How cool eh. Handing to have it all beside me while I'm sewing. I used Erin McMorris' Park Slope for all the fabric and I love the fun bright feel to it. After making this I've decided I should take some time and effort into creating a pretty space for myself. Next up...ironing board cover (mines looking pretty shady right now).

Another completed project (FINALLY!) is my Bananafana bag. I started this 1 year was supposed to be my spring bag last I'll finally get to use it this year. Loving the Amy Butler Nigella fabric.

And the grommet detail is fun, however, they are scary to work with sometimes. It's a little unnerving to cut a hole in a piece that you just completed...but it all worked out.

So June if fast approaching and I'm still sorting through trying to figure out what my big giveaway will be for the SEWN website launch...I'm definitely thinking handmade...

Also coming up is the May Giveaway Day organized by Sew Mama Sew. Check it out here. I don't think I'll be hosting a giveaway for that particular one, considering I've already got one in the works for June 1st. But I will be partaking in the fun!
