These little zippered bags are gifts for friends.
This one is for a young teen. It's made from decorator fabric that someone gave me recently. I sandwiched a layer of felt between the outside and lining to add a little body.
This one is for a woman who loves purple. Her Christmas decorations are purple, her garage door is purple. Loves, loves, loves purple. The fabric is leftover from a bridesmaid dress I made for my sister-in-law.
The fabric is actually quite lightweight, so I quilted it with a lighter purple thread. I'm a little rusty with the stippling, but I find it's an all-or-nothing sort of thing. I have a hard time ripping some out and re-doing parts to make it look good, so I just keep going. It is what it is.
I have some other gift items to post about yet. A couple of days ago I went back to sewing for me. I got a little work done on my jeans. Unfortunately, I think they are too tight now. That might have something to do with all the goodies the generous parishoners have been dropping off in the last week. I guess I'll need to back off from the sweets in the New Year (but probably not before then!).
