November Monthly Report

Monday, December 21, 2020

Happy December! Coming in most of the way through the month to sneak in the November report. Let's keep it short and sweet. See past reports here.

All of the sewing that I did in the month of November was for the Lined Drawstring Bag Sew Along! I made a bunch of bags, including 24 tiny bags for my advent calendar. When I wasn't sewing drawstring bags I was working on the sew along posts, editing photos or shooting videos. It was a lot of work, but I hope it was fun! You can find all the posts from the sew along here: Lined Drawstring Bag Sew Along.

Here are a few of my favorite bags I made in November:

All made with my tutorial/patterns:

To keep myself accountable for my stash goals, I track my yardage for fabric and yarn each month. Read more about how I track here. Here is how I did in November:

November Fabric
Used up: 5.25 yards
Brought in: 3 yards
Net: 2.25 yards
Year to date: -17.5 yards

November Yarn
Used up: 0 yards
Brought in: 0 yards
Net: 0 yards
Year to date: 0 yards

I bought a little fabric this month, from my friend Holly's shop, Bijou Lovely. I couldn't let those Ruby Star Society apples go by without grabbing them! Plus a few other things jumped into my cart too. :)

We put up our Christmas tree the Friday after Thanksgiving which was fun. I love having it up and digging into all my ornaments. It makes it feel so cozy in the house. We're staying here in the holidays, so I really went all in on decorating to help us stay cheery.

George the bunny, looking as cute as ever.

Happy Sewing!


  1. Thanks for all your work on the sewalong! Even though I only made a handful (tho making another now!) I loved following along and using the ones I did make to wrap Christmas gifts!

  2. Thanks Jeni for a sweet post. Wishing you and your husband the best of the holidays and take care now. You are a pleasure to see when looking at my e-mails. Thank you so much. (-: Ho Ho Ho. take care please.

  3. I wonder? Have you tried to create a little georgie bunny ornament? It would be so cuddly little georgie. I wonder what kind of bunny he is....I would really love to have a little pet. Happy Holidays to and your loved ones. And thank you for all the hard work you put in in keeping your blog up and going and everything else. It's nice to read it and your social media....especially when some days aren't perfect.
