As per usual I waited until the last possible minute to complete a project or two….

Today is the boy’s very last day of junior kindergarten (insert major sad face here!).

He’s actually kinda sad about the whole matter because he really likes going to school despite having to follow rules and do work and all that stuff. I have a feeling he’ll be asking every other day if he “gets to go to school today?” And when I say no he’ll be sad until I can distract him with swimming or …swimming it’s summer, the pool is really the only place I want to hang out!

Leaving things until the last minute greatly diminishes the options I have for making things as well. Since I had only 6 hours or so, minimal options and somewhat limited materials, I decided to make pillows small ones.

The boy helped pick the materials and sort of coloured in the butterfly and bubble letters that I drew, then I did my part sewing and stuffing.

This is what we came up with….

It’s like the tree has given us a gift of purse! But really I just forgot to take a picture of my finished project as usual so I tossed it up there on a whim. I probably should have at least picked a limb low enough to get the details on the bag!

I made this for my SIL. She had seen the one I made for myself ages ago and asked for one. She provided the pants, yes, pants, I did the rest.

This is a purse made from a pair of cords. She provided a black pair and I dug through my stash and found a fun butterfly patterned piece big enough for the lining. I lined the inside of the handles with the same material and decided at the last minute to make a belt for it as well. The waist size of the pants determines the size of the bag so this wasn’t a large one, about a 6 maybe. I didn’t put any interior pockets but could have as there ended up being more room than I anticipated. It is meant to be a forearm bag only because of the short handles.

I handed it off to many thank you’s, great job’s and wow you should make these for money! but honestly I prefer blankets.

And now I need to get back to the blanket I have been procrastinating over because as usual I am running short on time!
