My Valentine - A day of sewing!

I spent the day sewing!

But on Saturday - I spent the day searching for my Amy Butler Birdie Sling pattern. This has to be my favorite purse pattern - I have tried MANY! I keep coming back to this one because it holds a lot- and - it has this awesome, wide, padded shoulder strap! 

I have lots of other bags for different uses - like the Mondo bag from Quiltmsart

So I got dome tidying of the sewing room done as a by product of the search-'some'

I did pick fabrics




There is a lot of fusible fleece in this, and I needed the tube turner for a related project below-some good tools make life easier: Dritz themal thimbles and the Clover Iron Finger are finger savers for me!

It replaces this Studio Kat Carolina Carry All

Coordinated Quiltsmart cell phone bag with optional vinyl pocket for my University ID


Happily productive day-very nice valentine!

And of course a bit of stitching on this:



What did you sew this weekend?
