Pillow Fun!

Since graduating I have realized, I have a lot of time, I mean A LOT of time and most I spend rummaging through other blog websites and google for fun projects.  I have created a stash of leftover fabric remnants from various projects I have completed.  Some small and some large pieces, and I didn’t know what to do with them.

One of my many cousins’, Cami, is moving into a new place and had invited me to her housewarming party; however, I will be unable to attend, but still wanted to do create something nice for her for her new place.   I headed off to the internet in search of some ideas…




I think I am getting the hang of this, one day at a time.  I almost feel obsessed and my fiance is by now, frustrated that I keep interrupting his television shows with the sound a humming sewing machine.  I just can’t get enough!  I want to try everything!  The next project on my list this weekend that I had wanted to try was a quilted zippered cosmetic bag/pencil holder that measures about 9 in. by 6 in.  Using more of my leftover fabric from previous projects as well as batting and zippers I created these adorable bags.  I am unsure what I will be doing with them, but I feel it is a waste to just toss the fabric, if it can be utilized.  I found the pattern from Crafty Gemini as one of her older tutorials.  She utilizes an 8″ pattern; however, the zippers I found were either 7″ or 9″ so I modified the pattern a wee bit to match the materials I had on hand.
