Saturday Sewing

I did most of my housework earlier in the week, so today was spent sewing and decluttering a closet. The weather is grand!!! A little nippy, but right now its 57degrees and no snow in sight!

I designed a new larger size clothespin bag using a bamboo wood hanger with a swivel hook. Its very convenient to use because the bag turns as you need it. Its large enough to hold lots of pins, but not too deep, so you can easily reach in and get them. I plan to stock my Etsy Shop with this size bag, as well as keep it stocked with my smaller bags. I think both size bags are very useful.

I finished the "Botanical Bugs" Apron that I posted plans for earlier in the week:

Another very pretty grocery bag with roses on a trellis background:

I have one more grocery bag cut out and ready to sew. Hope to get that one done before I call it a "sewing day".

Happy Saturday!

Hi Debbie,
Love the bigger clothes pin bag. I think its time for me to make a new one....
Question for you...when you free motion quilt do you use the walking foot or the darning foot? I've never done free motion but have a quilt thats been waiting for awhile to be quilted and thought I'd like to try it.

Everything you make is so cute, Debbie! I always love the fabrics you pick out.

It's getting warmer here, too. I keep hearing avalanches of snow falling off the roof and plunking on the ground!
