Sowin Bags

This past month I have been trying hard to get in as much sewing as I can, because I know once the weather turns nice I will want to be out in the yard and garden. I made some bags this last month, one for a birthday and another for a baby shower.
I have made this diaper bag and changing pad before so it went up pretty fast. The pattern is in the Winsome Baby book by Nancy Halvorsen.

 

 

 

 

This bike basket is a new one for me and I will say it was a challenge, for a couple of reasons. The first one is that the instructions were made for using laminated fabric and I used canvas. Glue was also a major part of this project, but I chose not to use glue and instead sewed. Sewing where glue would be much easier made it a little trickier in tight quarters and corners! It worked out just fine, just took a little extra time to figure out. I will definitely make another one because I want one for my bike! A handy feature with this basket is that you can easily take it off your bike and use it as a bag. I found the pattern while on a camping road trip last fall in Sisters, Oregon at the Stichin Post Quilt Shop.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Spring is coming and my sewing days will turn to sowin seeds. I am alright with that as long as I get a little time here and there at my sewing machine.

I see my rhubarb pushing through the dirt…
