Soooo many comments from my giveaway have listed curtains as something they have made for their home. I don't even consider making curtains sewing! Well, not fun sewing anyway.

Here are a few other things mentioned so far.

Sewing machine cover.

I made mine to match in the living room/sewing space where I have a Klimt print on the wall.

I used the pdf tutorial over at Spool to make this one and another smaller version for one of my nieces.


Potholders.

I know there are potholder swaps going on in blogland. A fun way to play with a little bit of fabric and a design. This one is an example I made when I helped my husband's grade 5 class make potholders and mitten ornaments for a fundraiser at Christmas. All of our fabric was donated by the Local Quilt Shop - thanks Cindy Bee!

Friendship bag.

I love to make these. Sweet and simple. Great birthday gifts for little girls and older ones too! There is a tutorial by Rachel of p.s. i quilt. I have more cut out to make too.


Tote bags.

I really enjoy making bags. And modifying them. This is from the Spring 2009 issue of Quilts and More. I added a zipper to make it more useful. It was a present for my mom's birthday.

Denim purse.

Made for my daughter from a pair of her jeans. Great pockets! Fun project.




Can't have too many! A great way to use up fabric you can't/won't use anywhere else! The thin fabric ones fold up great into a purse so you always have a bag with you.

Okay.
So there are definitely more fun things to sew than curtains!





Make sure to visit the Quilt Festival that takes place across Blogland starting Friday. You can click on the button above to go to the details about how to participate. I still haven't decided what quilt I will show. It'll be a surprise!


With Joy,
Sarah Vee
