A fun Friday night and a mystery.....

I spent another Friday night sewing with my blogger friend Regena :) Although we live in different cities, with the magic of the internet, we can each work on projects in the comfort of our own homes while we chat back and forth in between breaking needles and ripping out seams gone awry.
I wanted to take a break from sewing items for the shop and decided to make something just for me. A few weeks back I saw the pattern for this re-usable grocery bag over at and I knew I wanted to try it out. You can find the free download here. It's a great pattern..... easy to follow and fun to make. I'll definately be making more of these. I used sturdy home decor fabric and I love the way it turned out. A bag like this might actually make grocery shopping more fun. (OK....I said "might")

the mystery materials.......

So that was the fun on to the mystery! I've been collecting the items in this photo for a for a while now and today I'm starting the project.  Can you guess what I'm making? I'll show pictures and the details hopefully tomorrow, so stay tuned!


  1. I think I know, is it a nature/wilderness pack for your beautiful grandsons? I can't wait to see the finished product. It's wonderful that you and Regena craft and chat together. I think you need to try the video chat.

  2. Nice bag and as always thank you so much for sharing the location of the pattern :-),

  3. I saw the pattern for that bag and thought that I might like to tackle it. Looks beautiful!
