Make It. Weekend Sewing Projects

I finally made it to my sewing machine!  I was so happy to get the few bag accessories made up yesterday.  I made them with some luscious fabric sent to me as a gift from Cyndi, a fellow member of the bum knee club.  I can't thank you enough for everything Cyndi.  You are the best!

The first is obviously a card holder, the second is a gadget, cash, whatever holder, and the third is actually a passport holder.  Okay, I didn't intend for it to be a passport holder at first.  I started to make a checkbook holder, but I messed up on my measurements and voila, a perfect fit for a passport.  Behold:

Like a glove.  
Here is little sneak peak at the inside of that passport:

That's me.  Look how thick my eyebrows are!  Any guesses on my age here?  

All right.  Do you feel Spring (or March Madness) in the air?  Do you want to make something this weekend?  Here are a few crafty links that may get you started:

I'm hoping to make another tunic from Butterick 7762, this time in red, and a black corduroy skirt from Butterick 2235.

These little pouches are going to be one of my first challenges to use my sewing machine. Love your passport photo and no matter what age you are lovely.

How fun!! The colors go so well together and look so cheerful - they are really neat!


ps- thanks for coming on my blog so often. When I finish a project and put it on the blog I am frequently so exhausted I don't do anything else! Just wanted you to know I enjoy and appreciate your comments.
