A long time ago I was obsessed with selvages and I collected a big pile of them... and then I never had the chance to use them :)
So since I was looking to get my mojo back, I thought that the simple project of sewing selvages to a muslin piece for a couple of zipper pouches was the prefect activity!

Main pieces for mini sew together zipper pouches!
And another activity that does not require thinking, is to try to use up my overflowing bags of scraps!
Bonnie Hunter started a new  Leader and Ender project (with tumblers) and even if I don't do classic leader/enders (because with paper piecing it's just very impractical) I wanted to use this project as an excuse to "End" the madness in my overflowing bags of scraps ;)

Since they are divided by colors, I will make monochromatic scrappy blocks and put them together with some kind of sashing (still to decide). These are my first two blocks

10'' x 14'', scrappy tumbler blocks!

I see another scrappy rainbow project by the end of the year!! ;)

Last but not least... the winners for the flash SYS2015 giveaway are:

  1. I think we all go through these phases. Somehow, projects have a way of losing their luster, and we find ourselves muscling through to get them done. I think mindless sewing every now and then helps get the interest back. Of course, shopping does too - nothing like a new cute fabric to make me want to play!


Thanks for stopping by! I would love to hear from you!
Please share your thoughts on my projects with me!
