jewelry bags

I sewed little jewelry bags out of gray cotton fabric that has these great polka dots that aren't quite in perfect rows. Here are some pictures of the bags and more importantly of my sewing machine. It's one of my favorite possessions. It belonged to my Grandma Marge and still works perfectly. Fortunately she had a foot pedal installed so I don't actually have to hand crank it.

friday morning

Here are a few other pieces that I just finished. I'm working on a couple others and I've started sewing little sachets to package them in.

On a side note, when I was trying to come up with a name to sell things under I asked Mike for help. Although I won't be using any of his suggestions, I'm still laughing at all the ridiculous names he came up with. I think my favorite three were Honey Bunches of Beads, Ear Wigs (because if you put a wig on your head to make it look better...), and Sparkly Danglers. Oh Michael...

Here are a couple of things that I've been working on this week. I have a couple more that I'm finishing up and will post a little later. And yes, that is my sofa.
