Bored is not in my vocabulary!

But, one day, I was bored (gasp ~ horror ~ shame). 

You see, I was waiting for the weekend sales at JoAnns to purchase a few items so I could continue sewing the one project that I had going on... which meant that I didn't have anything to work on! The dishes were done and the laundry was put away, and I didn't know what to do with myself!

Grizz is usually the antsy one who gets bored easily. I am usually never bored, since I always have several projects to work on - but most of my sewing stuff is already in SD! All it took was Grizz laughing at my bored self once, and I was diving in to my available scraps.

 Scraps!!

 I took these 1-1/2" squares...

 ... took them to machine...

 ... and created this...

 ...which turned into this...

 ... followed by this (thank you antique store 75% off vintage fabric!)...

 ... my project kept building and I took less and less pictures...

 ... here I thought I was done...

... but it needed a strap! Now, I have a fun little purse to use when I get to go out without Peanut :) 
(otherwise, all I need is a diaper bag!)

  2. Fun, that is my favourite kind of sewing, one that evolves on its own!
