Make-A-List Monday: Zippy-palooza!

Oh, man did I have fun last week! Lemme tell ya, chucking the list was such a stroke of genius, if I do say so myself.

Gave me total license to sew these:

Yep. I went a little nutso on the zippy bags. Figured they'd come in handy as a last minute, thinking of you sort of gift. That and my boys and baby girl wanted some of their own, since their older sister got a couple. So I've got robots and cars and American flags (that would be for my Scout) and birds. All for their treasures and stuff.

As for the rest of my non-list?

  • Sew my daughter's Sophia bag - and the saga continues, because as I was sewing it, my daughter began to fall back in love with it. It must be the hedgehogs. So I just have some handstitching to do and then all will be revealed on Friday!
  • Start sewing lessons - yah, I started them with some little line mazes and dot to dots she could do. She didn't like it, said she wanted to do some real sewing. So we've got her set up with scraps and she's stitching away!
That was all. I'm working on the Weekender bag post. It's going to take some time, getting pictures together and whatnot, but it's going to be SO worth it!

Okay, as for this week, it's a simple list:
  • Finish the Sophia bag - just hand stitching left to do
  • Make my Scrumptious pillow (or two!)
 That's all. Well, I'll be doing some cutting while the kids do lessons. But that's all.


  1. Cute cute zippy bags!! How fun and thrilling to have your daughter with you sewing:)

  2. I adore these pouches! You have such cute fabrics!!!
