Zipper bags and sewing machine mat...

I absolutely fell in love with this new Riley Blake hexagon fabric.  It is bright, and fun, and perfectly includes by love of EPP...way to go Riley Blake!  This week I managed to fit in some sewing and I made TWO zippered project bags--one for me and one for one of you!!  It's a giveaway...yeah!

They each measure about 12" x 12".  There is clear vinyl on the front and you can see the hexagon print on the inside.  I think it will be perfect for my EPP supplies--extra needles, paper pieces, scissors, etc.  The only difference between the two is the color of the zipper--one is lime and the other orange.  Leave a comment telling me which one you'd prefer and I'll draw a name on Wednesday, March 19th at 6pm (Las Vegas time).  I haven't been blogging much so there might only be a handful of readers/comment--you have a great chance of winning!!  LOL...

While I was at it, I made a sewing machine mat from the same fabric--I used this tutorial that I found on Pinterest from Katie's Quilting Corner.  The idea of using pre-quilted fabric was awesome, but nooooo, I had to quilt my own.  ;-)  I think I'll hit Jo-Ann today to see what they have just in case I need to make a gift for someone.  Now I have somewhere to put all my little stuff that litters my sewing table (too messy to show for the photo).

Today I am cleaning the house and doing some school work.  I have to appear for jury selection for a two week jury trial tomorrow so I need to get my "ducks in a row" at work and at home in case I'm selected.

Happy Quilting to you all...and it is 80 degrees these days in Las Vegas!  Spring!!!
