Dreamin' Vintage Sewing
Monday, July 28, 2014
Happy Monday! Today I wanted to share a few smaller projects I've been working on with Dreamin' Vintage! Between the inevitable slow down that summer brings and putting out new patterns, I haven't been doing a ton of sewing lately. Having a few smaller projects to finish helps keep me motivated to sew! Plus, who doesn't love projects that you can finish in an afternoon!
First up is a boxy pouch from my Triplizip Zipper Pouch Pattern. I made this pouch for Deedee's very sweet daughter Elsa. It was her 10th birthday last month! A fun zipper pouch for treasures and treats seemed appropriate!
I knew she liked blue and turquoise so I choose one of my favorite Dreamin' Vintage prints for the exterior. I used the purple print for the interior and handle.
I absolutely love pincushions, as you probably know! I picked up this tarnished baking tin a few months ago and I finally made it into a little pincushion! I like how it looks like a tiny loaf of bread.
Another long overdue project I tackled was some more lavender sachets. I used 5" squares with linen for the back. I've stuck them in my closets with quilts, my yarn tubs, and in the bottom of my fabric bins. Here's to hoping they keep the moths away! I buy from lavender from here.
