..busy, busy..

Wow, Lately I have been a bit overwhelmed, but in a good way.  I just recently changed from part-time to full-time at work, which has led to less free time and much earlier bedtimes.  And, lately I have been getting the sewing itch.  I made my husband a halloween costume, did a few little diy accessory projects, and have been finishing and rehatching old sewing projects. Here is a super cute little makeup bag I made out of fabric scraps, for a friend.
...and, also my apologies for being such a slacker on outfit posts lately, and though I don't have much for ya today, here is a little bit to hold you over.
I am gearing up for fall weather and finally getting to pull on some cozy jackets and scarves!
 Ahh, and here are the beginnings of the pencil bag that preceded the makeup bag.  I followed the directions here from the lovely Design*Sponge blog.  I love little quick, easy projects like this, I am all about instant gratification!  It is really easy to adapt to whatever size you want.  My tip for this project is, don't sew the lining too close to the  back edge of the zipper, this will help keep the lining from getting caught in the zipper.
