Sewing is a lot like life...sure, there are patterns for just about everything, but in order to love what you do, or love what you make, you have to change the pattern to make it your own regardless if the change is a fraction of an inch or the length of a yard. And more often that not, those choices you make to change the pattern do not work out exactly the way you hope. It can be frustrating and challenging, and sometimes you have have to rip it all apart at the seams and start completely over. Which requires patience. A lot of patience. But in doing so, you create something that is far more rewarding, and far more beautiful, then what you started with.

Where did the weekend go?

First, thanks SO much to Jill over at A Round Tuit for featuring my holiday shirts this week, it is such a nice way to start the new week! A Round Tuit is such a cute site because you guessed it, it is for all the projects Jill hopes to accomplish when she gets "a round 'tuit".
And speaking of getting around do it, where did the weekend go? Between errands, shopping at the Junior League of Plano's Neath the Wreath holiday market, enjoying what is sure to be the last of the beautiful weather outside with Z and.....SEWING......I hardly remember Friday evening even starting!
This weekend I tackled a lot of different projects and I will be sharing the rest of them over the course of the week, but I am starting with more of my Sling Bags since they were my first finish on Friday. It is no secret I love them (see them here, here, here and here), but I love the way these turned out because I have neve made Sling Bags with these fabrics before. The pink and green large bloom bag is my favorite!

Later this week I will be sharing wallets, coasters, tee shirts and even a fun project made by my Dad!

Enjoy your Sunday evening!
