small things

not much happening on the sewing front lately. i’ve been getting up at 430 to go to the gym. and i have so many kids running around all day. so, when we get our knuckleheads settled in for the night, i am usually too tired to accomplish anything and i watch mindless tv and go to bed.

anyhow, i had some time the other night, i can’t remember why, and i was eager to actually finish something, so i decided to whip up a little drawstring bag for anna. i scored this yo gabba gabba fabric a little bit ago and she’d been carrying it around like a blanket, so before it all frayed into a pile of thread, i decided it would be perfect. combined with some rainbow-y stripes, of course.
she’s currently got all five yo gabba gabba stuffed animals crammed in there. 🙂

over the course of two other nights, i made this fun zipper pouch, using some gray quilters linen and these fun cassette tapes that derek bought me as a gift awhile back from (i’m fully aware that was a stupidly long run on sentence. and i don’t care.)

i put fun lime leaf fabric from the chicopee line inside.

and then, yesterday, at the thrift store, i packed it full of snacks for anna. and i guess when she pulled out the last snack, she tossed the empty pouch overboard. we searched and searched for it. i showed the picture to the manager. she assures me that they won’t sell things without tags. and that she will call me if it’s found. i’m not so optimistic.

so, i literally had it for two days. blerg.
