Sewing Mojo

I have great sewing mojo. I hardly ever feel uninspired. Between blogs, social media, friends, my imagination, and my quilting/sewing to-do list, I always have something I can work on or start. I also like to finish things. I’m a finisher. So having great mojo and being a finisher means I work on a lot of little things in between or during big projects. I always have a bigger project in the works (or two…or three), but I like seeing little finishes along the way. So here are a few little finishes I’ve done recently.

 

Rags

 

 

 

These crocheted dish rags are for my aunt. They’ll hopefully make it in the mail this weekend. I have a couple other fun things for her. I mostly worked on these in the car on the way to work.

 

Hexie

 

So this is my mini hexie flower. It’s super mini. Those hexies are 1/4″. I know…crazy! I’m not interested in doing them ever again, but I gave it a try and I’m glad I did.

 

Bee Block

 

 

Of course, I made a couple of bee blocks. This one was very interesting and a very different technique. It was fun. I very much enjoyed it.

 

Teacup

 

Isn’t this teacup block adorable? I chose girly fabrics and I really hope they are “bright” enough. I kept wanting to go towards dainty since that’s what I think of when I think of teacups and saucers. This was a fun block with a lot of easy parts, but still very easy.

 

Pouch

 

Finally, I made this easy zippy pouch.

Pouch

 

I got a new purse. It’s a Kate Spade and it’s my first designer purse. Yes, I’m 26 and this is the first time I’ve purchased a designer purse. I sort of feel like a sellout, but then again, it’s very pretty, it was on sale, and it’s classy. See how I justified that? Anyway, I had a crappy old zippy pouch that was super ugly. My new purse deserved better, so I made this one. It’s pretty and makes me very happy.

So there you go. That’s what I’ve been working on. It doesn’t seem like a lot until you put it all together. I guess I’ve been pretty busy. 🙂

    Oh my gosh, that’s amazing that you were able to sew those hexie’s together! Good proportional photo with your finger to show how small they really are.
