7 quick sewing.


I haven't really been too inspired to sew recently, but yesterday I was in the mood for a quick and easy instant gratification type of project.  Something I could finish in one short little session to remind me how good it feels to finish a project!  This lined drawstring bag using Jeni's tutorial was just what I needed.
I used Lizzy House's Pearl Bracelet print in Green from the 1001 Peeps collection for the exterior.  I'm currently obsessed with this color!  The black and white dot prints are just random fat quarters I had laying around, not sure who they're by.  The ribbon is a Martha Stewart faux bois ribbon I bought at Michael's a really long time ago.
 I'm traveling again this week and needed a bag to hold my current knitting project (another honey cowl).  This bag will work perfectly!
This bag was so fun and fast to make I have a few more already planned.  I think they'll make really cute gifts for Valentine's day.


  1. lovely! I keep thinking I need to try that tutorial. Love your stack of fabric. that green and white is my favorite. I bought some for my kitchen. :)

  2. Darling bag! The fabrics look great together, too.

  3. love it! and happy to hear you have been bitten by the knitting bug! :)

  4. that is the perfect little sack, great color combo. I honestly feel so embarassed about admitting this, but I bought yarn and needles for making a honey cowl, but I'm so scared to start, I don't even know if I picked out an acceptable yarn!

  5. I've been meaning to make one for myself. Maybe this weekend! I love yours. I share your obsession with the green pearl bracelets!

  6. I have these little bags high on my to-sew list. Yours is so cute!! And I agree, I think they'll be perfect for V-day gift giving!
