Sewing group was last night. We made Phoebe bags.

My friend Casey wanted a little one for her daughter Paige.

We copied the pattern at 65%. I left the strap the same thickness as in the original, but shortened it.

If you’re in Utah, you can watch my sister on Studio 5 this morning.

You know who else is going to be on? Heather Bailey, aka the woman whose fabric made my sewing room what it is today (a mess — ha!). And I almost cried tears of joy the 2 times she commented on my blog. Seriously. I don’t think my sister’s nearly as excited about that as I am. Kids!

And, tomorrow I’ll be blog swapping. Look forward to meeting someone new here!

    Gee, you have a sewing group. Who do you get to together with? I have been trying to organize something here at my house for a couple of years but no one where I live likes to sew. Did you organize it or did someone else?….I need tips on where to find some sewing peeps that actually want to sew "together" in Salt Lake City. Any Ideas?

  5. I love that you do a sewing group. I just wish I were closer.

    I am finding so many cool ideas on your blog! Thanks for the link to the phoebe bag – I'm gonna try to make one, too!

  7. I am sad that I didn't make it last night. Ammon had a young men's meeting and so of course I was stuck home with the kiddos. One of these times I am going to make it to sewing group even if it means leaving them home alone. :)

    I love the bags!

    I missed your sis! I did happen to see the fabric designer. She was on while I was talking on the phone. I noticed the fabrics (before I read your blog) and thought they looked so cool! I wish I had seen your sis, though! BTW, this morning I was wanting to go to lunch with you. Are you too famous now to spend a little time with lil'ol me?
