It Was a Sewing Kind of Day

As much as I am loving my chicken purse, and I am LOVING it, it was so difficult to find anything within its vast inner cavern. So, I picked up some coordinating fabrics at Joann’s and dug out my sewing machine. First I made a wallet, riffing (as I tend to do) on this tutorial from Babyangel. (I used her alternate zipper instructions, found here.)

It just needs a snap or some other form of closure. I am so thrilled with how it came out!

Then I got some fabric bits leftover from making knitting project bags and made something else.

(I love that fabric.)

What is it you ask?

It’s one of these, of course!

And it works smashingly!

Whew! A wonderful and productive sewing day!
