Polka Dots & Stripes

Before sharing my most current projects, I just wanted you all to know that I still have not quilted the owl quilt. My goal is to have it finished this weekend. Please have patience as I get it finished and posted for you guys to see. Some of you already know this, but for those of you that don't, I work full time and go to school full time. It's really difficult to find time for sewing. I am very determined to sew for at least an hour or two a day as often as possible. It is my passion and can't get enough of it.

And now for what I've put together over the past two days....

In the photos above and below is a very cool zippy pouch that I found a pattern for on Sew, Mama, Sew!  I have a few ideas in mind to enhance the functionality of it, but I think it is very hip.  What do you guys think?

I also made an easy to sew tissue pouch out of the left over fabric.  As you see in the photo below, I added a decorative stitch to it, just to add a bit of pizazz to it.

Here's another little tissue pouch I made out of some left over fabric from another project:

A bit of the other project can be seen in the above photo.  The upper half is shown below.  I really don't know what to call this or use it for.  I was just playing around with the zipper and came up with this.  The closest use I can come up with is to hang it on a doorknob or hook on a shelf and store things in it.  *shrugs*

Okay, so this is all the time I have for now.  Until next time, enjoy the sunshine!
