Happy Holidays to You!!

My goodness!  It has been over a month since I posted here.  
It has been super crazy dealing with our house remodel.  
We moved last week and we still have the final move into our house. - hopefully by February. 
We found a two bedroom basement apartment that is cozy and comfortable, but I am seriously looking forward to being in our new house!

In the meantime I have found a bit of time for Christmas sewing.

If you are looking for some gift sewing ideas, check our my gifts to make page [HERE]

I made these open wide pouches designed by Noodlehead.  
If you are looking for an easy last minute gift to make, this is also a good one.
The pouch pictured in front has a leather bottom which matched nicely with the Cotton and Steel canvas print.
Find a tutorial for sewing leather or suede [HERE]

The large pouch is perfect for smaller knitting projects.
You can find the tutorial [HERE]

I saw some adorable Petal Pouches on IG made by the talented a__l
The pattern is also from Noodlehead and is a fun and easy make.

I couldn't resist making a patchwork version and raided by scrap basket. 

OK... back to Holiday sewing I go  :)

Happy Sewing
