A (very) Little Bit of Sewing

I've been working a lot of extra hours lately, and preparing for a work trip to Denver, so, unfortunately I haven't had a lot of opportunities to sew. 

I signed up a month or so ago for a Scrappy Trip Along block exchange. I was assigned five partners and I'm almost finished with all of the blocks. Thankfully we have until sometime in October to mail them, and I only have one left to make. 

I also decided the day before I left to Denver that I needed to make myself a new bag to take along. Makes sense, right? No pressure, or adding to what I needed to get done. 

I used fabric from the Simply Style line by V & Co., which I really love! I made the Simple Six Pocket Bag found on Better Homes and Gardens' website. It really was simple - it took me less than two hours! It ended up being a lot smaller than I thought it would be, but to be honest, I read the size of the finished bag, I just didn't pay attention. 

Overall, I really like it, and it has served me well on my trip! I'll be making another at some point. 

This picture isn't the greatest, but I'm sitting in the Denver airport, so I'll try to get a better one at a later time. 

Now I can't wait to get home and see David and these little cuddlers!
