HO HO HO, It's Blog Hop Time!

Before I show my little projects, I want to say Thank You Carol and Madame Samm for another wonderful hop. You have inspired us to create and kept us all organized.

I worked on two projects. First, a super cute snowman pleated zip bag. I love how the striped fabric peeks out from the pleats. The inside is peppermint candies. Sorry the photo doesn't show the inside pockets, or the cute snowflake topstitching on the striped fabric. This is the first time I have made a zip bag, so other than adding inside pockets, I didn't change the pattern. Now that I have the pattern down, I know my next one will have a ruffle. Sorry for the indoor photos, rainy days didn't allow for outdoor photos.




This cute pattern and a terrific video tutorial is available at http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0CU6CwzfoTc and http://www.pattydoo.de/wp-content/uploads/2013/06/pattydoo_pouch_pattern.pdf


My second project is a cute fabric bowl. It was so much fun to make and so easy with just a zig zag stitch on the sewing machine. I know I will be making many of these in the future.







 
Thanks for stopping by.

  3. The bag is very cute. I do have a slight fear for zippers, so this tutorial will be patiently waiting for me.... The fabric bowl is gorgeous too....so many uses for that one! Unfortunately I do not have the zigzag down yet.... I do almost everything by hand and the machine only gets to do straight stitching..... Thank you for showing the tutorials, I will have to overcome some fears!

  53. I really love the pleated zip bag. And the fabric bowl is something I have wanted to make for a long time now. You are the second one in the past week and a half who has shown one. I need to get the supplies to make one soon.

    I wanted to comment, but please do not put my name in for the travelling stash. As much as I would LOVE to win that, I can't as I do not have a blog yet.

  56. The peppermint lining to the pleated, zipped bag is perfect! I had not seen that item before. Bravo! I adore the fabric bowl. I haven't mustered the courage to try one yet. I love the bi-colored bowl. You are very clever. I haven't seen the idea of a two tone bowl, either. Thanks very much for participating and sharing your great creativity. You know how to get the Christmas spirit flowing.
