This is the time of the year when the title of my blog makes sense. I really am spending as much time as I can in my garden as well as sewing.
Of course, there are rainy days. And pretty fabric calling my name, so I do get some sewing in, too! This is such a busy time of year, and I am thinking about gifts for Teachers as the school year comes to an end, and Mother’s Day is coming, so I decided to try some hand-made gifts this year.
I made the zipper pouch from two leftover Layer Cake squares. I just love that flowery fabric, and the bright pink lining.
Then, I got brave and decided to try adding Handles! How cute is that? I am working on writing this up as a tutorial, so watch for that later this week. If you need a quick gift for someone this time of year, these are fun to make. They are also great for using up scraps of fabric and batting (I quilt mine for body rather than using interfacing).
