I here Voices. The Voices tell me to cut up Fabric. Good Fabric. Into small pieces. Small interesting pieces.

My Weekend Projects 09-23

I cut out and started sewing a new pajama top out of some fun flannel that I bought last spring. Oh, yes, I will be wearing it at retreat in November, 'cus how can I resist such a fun print?Photo Sharing and Video Hosting at Photobucket

I really liked the bag purse pattern that Joyce has been making so I downloaded the tutorial from Welsh Quilter (her postings are from June 2007) and gave it a go. It is all scraps from my current quilt project (no, not done yet) and I love the fabric. I think the purse is a bit big and am thinking of modifying it and making another one that is more shallow. I do like how the prints work together. It was a fun and easy tutorial to follow and make.

I used a bead I had laying around and the grosgrain ribbon (also laying around) to make a closure.

And it is done and ready for this winter!

Your bag turned out great. The best thing about this bag is that you can use all sorts of little scraps. I made one with each square different. It wasn't my favorite but I wanted to see how it would look.

I love that graphic print on the flannel. Thanks also for posting the link to the patchwork bag--I have LOTS of scaps smaller than a fat eight, and I've been trying to use them up. (For every project I make from new fabric, I've been trying to make 1 or 2 or more from my stash, as a way of trying to curb the spending. Dunno if it will work, but hey, at least I can try!)

The bag is terrific, and the bead works really well!
The PJ top is really wild fabric, you won't get lost in the dark in that! :) well done!

It's a long time since I sewed pajamas--years--but yours are an inspiration.
