Back to the sewing room

I have been away from the computer for a long time, trying to make the most of the wonderful weather we have had in September. Summer here has been all cold and rain, so I tried to make up for all the wasted time.

Now the rain is back and I will be spending more time indoors, downstairs in my little craft room. Lately I have been working on some quick and easy projects, just to get reaquainted with my sewing machine.

These book covers are a real charm to make and very easy to adjust to any book size. I made the pink one for my sister and kept the blue one for myself.

I also made this bag for my sister, but I am thinking of making one for myself too. I recycled a fabric shower curtain to make it and I like the fact that it has three pockets. I think it would be great as a library bag. The pattern, a super easy one, comes from this book.

Next up, I have to start working on some Christmas gifts, and a special request from my boyfriend who wants to have a pencil case for his upcoming return to school.
