Sewing Finishes

I finished a couple of Christmas gifts late last week, with only moments to spare before delivery! The first is a set of 3 Snap-Its that I made for my little sister. I put them inside of each other with a gift card in the smallest one. She loved them.
The last one is a tote bag I made for my sister. For some reason I kept messing things up and having to redo them, but it came out OK eventually and she was pleased with it.
I don't expect to be sewing again for awhile. I'm looking forward to concentrating on cross stitching for awhile. I'm working on my WIPocalypse list, and expect to post it within the next couple of days.


  1. Love your sewing finishes! The snap pouches are awesome. Love the colors you chose.

  2. Cute snap its, great gift idea. Great finish on the tote bag, love the fabric. I am editing (already?) my WIPocalypse list. I'm having fun seeing everyones' lists.
    Like, like, like your blog, found your link on Nataly's blog. Thanks Nataly!

  3. great sewing finishes! How on earth do you get the photos to flip in the sidebar? How are those retreat pieces coming?

  4. Welcome, Colleen. Thanks for the kind words. I look forward to seeing your WIPocalypse list.

  5. Hi Pam, I used the Slideshow gadget in Blogger to get the photos to flip in the sidebar. You can display pictures from Picasa Web Albums, Flickr, PhotoBucket and Others (I don’t know which others). It was really easy to set up.

    I haven’t worked on my retreat piece since I got home :-( but it will definitely be on my WIPocalypse list. How are your retreat pieces coming along?
