FF: All the Small Finishes!

No big finishes this week, but a lot of little ones!

Two more lined drawstring bags using this tutorial from In Color Order! (Seriously, these have been waiting four months for me to make the drawstrings and thread them through. I finally cut some ribbon just to be done with it. It took ten minutes.) I use them in place of gift bags, and the other is already in use for Lito's birthday this weekend.

Two gathered clutches using this tutorial from Noodlehead! (I was cutting fabric for one and thought I might as well make a second one while I was at it. One is staying with me, and the other is headed off to a friend.) They aren't perfect, or even near perfect, but I will use this tutorial again, though I think I'll do a few things different next time. The tutorial was genius though!

Inside view. Exterior fabric is from the Cosmos line by Laura Gunn and a random mustard pin dot. Interior is more Cosmos and a bit of a print from Patty Young's Heaven and Helsinki line.

Mini trashcan for my sewing table. It beats the ugly teal plastic bowl or my son's purple plastic frying pan! I kind of came up with it on the fly, and it worked out. I'm not a super huge fan of the lime interior, but I had it on hand, and since it's a trash can, I'm not stressing about it too much.

And a whole string of BOM and bee blocks, so now it's off to bigger projects, like finishing up the binding on this lovely. I'm linking up with TGIFF, which is being hosted this week at Dreaming in Patchwork, and Finish It Up Friday at Crazy Mom Quilts.


  1. Love those little clutches!

  2. yay for the little finishes! sometimes it is so good to see a project from start to finish quickly :) thanks for linking up to TGIFF!

  3. Cute little bags! You linked in two of the places I did this week. Finding Fifth and Crazy Mom Quilts. I'm actually here from finding Fifth. I've been here a couple of times through linkies, and I love your blog and am following.

  4. Little finishes are fun though! I just love drawstring bags now :) I have been wanting to make a clutch, too. Sooooon! I love yours!

  5. First time visiting from Finish it Up Friday at crazymomquilts. Don't you love how it is actually the easiest aspects of a project at the end that hang around for months. Last year I made so many outfits for my daughter that had elastic wastes, it took me months after making them to actually get the elastic in the pants! Love your little clutches and am going to click through the get the tutorial to make some for myself. Will be following in the future!


Thanks for leaving me a note! You've made my day!
