Finishes and New projects ready to start

Made a couple of little pouches this weekend from a home dec fabric sample I'd picked up on clearance at Joann's several yrs ago now.  

The first little tote is a boxy one that would be used to hold little stuff when traveling.   It finished out at 6'5" long by 4" wide by 3.5" tall.  I used the boxy tote tutorial found on the Three Bears blog.   Instructions were great and I winged the sizes to fit the sample fabric size that I was working with.

After finishing the first one, I then used the remaining pieces of the sample to make the triangular pouch.  Just three seams once the zipper is put in and oh so easy to make.

Any interest in me writing up a tutorial for it?

In doing some sorting through things that have been boxed up (in boxes or totes) for way too long,   One of the things that I've found again is this vest that I can no longer wear.   I hate to get rid of it because I love the tapestry fabric that I used to make the front out of.   I'm debating on what to do with it.....do I keep it as is and just try to sell the vest and make some money on it.   Or repurpose the tapestry fabric into something else for me.   I'm leaning towards the latter choice.   I still have never made myself a nice cover for my kindle file and am thinking that this might make a nice cover.  However, until I decide it'll go back into one of my totes so that it stays out of the light and dust.

The final project that I've pulled out to work on as I have time is a couple of kits for some Christmas homes that combine cross-stitch and sewing.   they were from one of my British Cross-stitch mags that I love, but of course I can't remember which one.   The pic on the cover tho is clear enoough that I can do the counting of the simple cross-stitch from the pic.   These will eventually end up as gifts since I don't have a tree to decorate anymore.

The bags are such useful things. 3 seams you say? Hmmmm. Maybe. =) I'm loving that you are getting to do so much while you are off!
