Scrappy Sunday Sewing

I spent all day Sunday sewing little bits of fabric together. I think I must have a hole in the head! But it was relaxing for the most part. I didn't really know where I was going when I started but I decided to turn them into some little bags. I don't know what it is about this size bag but people love them. I finished one up completely before I went to bed so I could feel like I actually accomplished something.

Here's what I started with in my blue/aqua bag. (The rainbow colors were pulled out for another day)

I have some key chains I (partially) made up with the character scraps. Then I had all these just random similar color pieces (they were all already cut to 1 1/2" wide) I just started sewing them together.

Here is my little zip bag I made

Of course when I was almost completely finished I found one tiny spot that didn't get sewn on the edge. I did a little whip stitch on it but I think I'm going to embroider a tiny heart over it in matching colors. Can you see it? It's right in the middle.

Here is the rest of my pieces ready to put together into bags. I do have some smaller pieces that were left over to play with when I'm done. I probably will not put yo-yos on all of them since not everyone likes that kind of thing and to have some variety. I was thinking of stitching a big heart outline with embroidery floss on one. We'll see how that looks. Just having fun playing around.

I'm trying to rid myself of a Janome sewing machine I was given. Wanna come pick it up? It's free. :-) We can meet in person and I could give you this sewing machine.
