Friday Night Sew-In Goodies

So I FINALLY got some Christmas sewing done.
I was so happy that another
was taking place in December.
It gives me a great excuse to
'get my sew on'.

I was able to complete one Christmas gift.

This great purse by Melissa of 100 Billion Stars.
You can find the pattern here.
I seriously love making this bag.
I hope Melissa never gets tired of my bragging her up.
But she is just so inspring.

The little pouch is a pattern by Atkinson Designs
called Cash and Carry.
Remember back when when I was going to rate
projects by the number of chocolates I either ate,
or wanted to eat?
Okay...if Iwould have had
 a bag of chocolates in my sewing room,
they would be
No lie.
I broke 2 needles putting the zipper in that little pouch.
And the funny thing is,
I have made this bag a couple times before.
I had a zipper brainfart.

Here's another close up of the bag,
just because I love it.

And another......

And if you're looking closely,
yes, that is a button of Rudy Giuliani
on the shelf.
Even autographed.
That's all I'll say about that.
I'll just keep y'all guessing.

I did make this pillow too,
though not during the Friday Night Sew-In.
I made it to sell at the local craft store.

The total Diva pillow.
Just like the creator.......
No comments please.

So that was my Friday night.
You know, when I was younger,
I would have never, EVER pictured myself
sitting home on a Friday night playing with fabric.
I had too many people to see and too many parties to go to!
Where is that girl?
Safe with her sewing machine...
and very grateful.

Until the next adventure,
