Firing up the sewing machine!

Yup... the calendar turned!  Thoughts of sewing are seeping back into my brain.  The girls all need new backpacks for school.  And they all want the colorful, homemade kind.  (Pictured is oldest kiddo's now-wearing-out-and-needs-replacing backpack.)  We have little piles of fabric waiting to be made into backpacks.  And Kiddo #2 has a favorite purse that is threadbare.  One of her friends also loves the purse...  So we are planning a slumber party sew-in soon.  I LOVE this purse pattern, by the way!  "Sassy Bag" by Lazy Gal designs.  Each purse is made with three fat quarters.  (Two little piles of fat quarters and the pattern are on the right-hand side of the photo.)  And... I've seen Schnibbles EVERYWHERE in blogland lately.  Soooo... I finally picked up the book.  Now if I could just find the time to actually crack it open....

More soon!  The oldest girls and I are working on "kick-butt-awesome-backpacks" today while the little girls play at Nana and Boppa's house!

Happy sewing!

Welcome back to the sewing room! Nothing like a new school year to kick you into gear.
