So remember the vintage sheets that I wrote about? Remember? No? Oh.

Moving on :)

So I came up with a design for some shoe/knitting/crocheting/lingerie/you get the idea bags and this is what I came up with.

They are very generous. Maybe a little too generous. But I have big feet. I was just trying to be careful.

We had these sheets when I was a kid, only in a different colour. Inside this bag is a pair of size 10 running shoes. I told you they were big.

This one is my favourite.

They are fully lined.

It was fun giving old sheets new life!

Have a great night everyone!

I Made a Sale!

I made my first sale on Etsy last week! Other than that, there's not much going on. Mostly sewing, wiping noses and thinking about the fact that my baby (who isn't a baby) will be TWO this month.

Here's some of the sewing.

This one is made with Amy Butler's Lotus. I love this fabric!

This one is Alexander Henry's Mocca.

And this one is Erin Michael's Loft 1800 for Moda.

I also bought some vintage sheets.

I'm going to try and make some shoe/gift bags with them. I also saw some beautiful quilts online made with vintage sheets. Hopefully I can find more sheets because I'd love to try that too!

I've also started thinking about my garden. Last year was the first time I have ever grown anything and I love it, much to my surprise :)

This year we're going to try growing tomatillos. The last time I went to the Latin grocery the enchilada sauce was $6.50 a can! I just can't justify paying that very often. So Dave ordered us some seeds online last night! Mmmmmmm.

Happy Wednesday everyone!
