This week I spent my sewing time on small projects.

I had a request for a couple of car trash bags. These are fun to make by customizing them for the person’s car.

Next I made a rather fun wristlet using Australian fabric. I made it with pockets inside. I don’t think pockets add anything to the bag, so I won’t be adding them to any future ones I make.

My granddaughter, Noelle, wanted a new pencil case. She had one similar to this in size and with the vinyl front. She liked it except for the fabric. So, via camera photos, she selected these two fabrics. I decided to make two in the event she finds more uses.

These vinyl cases are so versatile, I decided I needed a project bag.

Yes I know a red zipper would have been better; but, I didn’t have one. And, this is a pretty cool zipper. So, it will just have to work.

All of these items (except for my project bag) are in the mail and will probably find their new homes sometime today.

Hope you have a good week and

Quilt happy,
