Mom's Birthday!

Here are a couple little things that I made for my Mom's birthday, which was last Thursday.  Happy birthday, Mom!

A little zippered pouch, made with scraps from my stash and this wonderful tutorial.  I love the canvas-like outside fabric.  I have about 4 yards of it!  I got it at a vintage shop, but I haven't made anything with it other than this.  I'm thinking about a bag for spring, maybe view B of Simplicity 2685.

I visited a little bead shop that just opened up in November, and the owner helped me make these earrings.  The total was only $10 for both pairs!  I really jewelry making, but I don't think I can afford to pick up another hobby!

I know I've been saying this for weeks, but I'm finally almost done with Butterick 5319.  I'll post pictures soon!


  1. How exciting about making your dress. It's so fun to sew for yourself I think. Can't wait to see it

  2. The little pouch is so cute. What a great shape.

    And thanks for the stylish blogger award! :)


I'd love to hear from you!
