Fresh Sewing Day: November 2014

Well, November wasn’t nearly as productive as I had hoped it would be. Still, I managed to finish Swoon Baby Quilt the First and En Route Julia Cardigan, as well as seven gift bags. All the gift bags were either made from In Color Order’s Lined Drawstring Bag pattern, or were a simplified version of it. In some cases, I favored speed over gussets and accent fabrics. There will be plenty of opportunity to sew more gift bags in December! I’m looking forward to trying my mom Debbie’s new Trim-Tied Gift Bag Tutorial, as well as some of the other bags on the list she curated for Sew Mama Sew, Handmade Holidays Bonus: Last-Minute Gift Wrap + Tags. Happy sewing!

Linking up with Fresh Sewing Day at Lily’s Quilts.


  1. You are the gift bag master, and I love reusing the ones you've gifted to me! Thanks for the shout-out(!) and congrats on your 2 larger finishes - both lovely! Here's to December!

  2. Fabulous makes, I love the Swoon and your cardigan!
    And those bags are perfect for easy present wrapping!
