Nap time sewing…yeah!!!

With a craft show coming up in 2 weeks I need to get to sewing some pouches and totes. I got the scarves done so now some totes and pouches. So today I did one of both. It started out like this….

Hummmm, which fabric to use?


I chose this for the pouch…


What size to make it?


And done… it’s about 8x8x3 so a good size for many things.


Then I made this tote…double thickness for sturdiness…

with decorative stitching….


I think if Jim works outside tonight I’ll make another pouch or two.

I did not get to the gym today. No gas and my partner that drives is sick so today I worked on fish flopping exercises instead. Crunches, push-ups, leg lifts, planks and ball exercises. I drank all my liquids and ate what’s right. So even though my routine is screwy I still did what needs to be done to lose the weight, fit into my dress and be healthy.

I hope that you had a great day today. Relax this evening and enjoy life. Tomorrow’s a new day, a day to follow the right path to fitness and health. Take care and God Bless!!

Ohh, I loved these! I've bought a tote like that online to keep my knitting in! I've even bought a 1978 Husquarna sewing machine through my gran to learn how to sew, but haven't had the time yet.. One day.... ;)

I am a sewer, too. I am working on some Halloween costumes for the GBs.
