It was a busy weekend which didn't afford me as much sewing time as I had wanted. As Erin said, such is the life of a volunteer (fireman). Oh well...
What I did manage to accomplish was making a few zippered bags.
The 4 on the top left are finished and the bottom two are still in the works. The bag on the top right will have a box bottom but I need to find some embellishments for it first.
I'm thinking a trip up to the city craft stores might be fun in the next couple weeks. That and I only have 1 sewing machine needle left and it's not even my "usual" brand. I think I only broke 3 over the weekend and it was mainly from not paying attention while changing feet and needle positions back and forth.
Several people have asked what patterns I use for my zippered bags:
I'm at the point now where I can really make the bags in my sleep but I still need the cutting dimensions from the patterns. I highly recommend these patterns if you don't own them already!
