Made with corduroy, these bags were also a project that lay unfinished.

They are styled after the mail sack.

What is the purpose?

Most bags I make are designed as I am working on them.

This is different from most bags I sew and I had a child in mind...  It too does not have a home yet.

No longer pending

I spent some time recently finishing up a few unfinished projects.

The fabric on the outside came from fabric sample books McKell gave me. It doesn't have a home yet.

When I need to sew

I will work on this...

It is another quilt made of scraps, free form, and amazing.

Blankety Blanket

My give away stash is in good shape now.  This blankety blanket went to live with the brother in law.

It's kind of manly right?

Dear Teacher

You were so super this year, my Mom made you something...

Love, Grasshopper and family.

P.S.  She (the one I call mome), really loves sewing and is one with the fabric when she makes bags.  We hope you remember us fondly on your trips to the library (or wherever you go with the bag).

School bags

I'd rather be premature and get going on teacher gifts.  But while I was busy assembling some of those, Grasshopper sweetly asked for one for herself to be ready that evening for use the following day.

She chose two colors.

And so the wish came true.

The school bag was ready for school the next day.
