I always wonder if our neighbors can hear my sewing machine at 1am.

I should be working right now, really.
Instead, I’m doing what I do best, procrastinating!
I do feel somewhat accomplished though, I completed 5 new bags, plus some makeup pouches and wristlets too.
And I cut out a bunch more this morning.

The fruits of said labor:

That one has a surprise inside.

A turtle surprise.
Mike gave me lots of funny looks when I was matching up fabrics. But I felt the paisley and the turtles just went together.
The serious grandma’s couchness of the paisley needs something fun to balance it out. Turtle love is perfect!
I seriously do love this.

And a matchy wristlet:

This purse has a functional mini pocket on both exterior sides.

Red.
This fabric I’ve been holding onto for a while.
I had used it to make a pencil skirt like almost a year ago?
The skirt came out fantastic and now I have a accessories to match.

Makeup pouches for good measure:

Finally, I scrounged up a bit more of this favorite fabric while going through my closet. Just enough to squeak out a medium sized summer tote.
