Sew & Tell Friday: A little bit of sewing and little bit of telling

Well, after nine consecutive days of grandparent house guests (my mother-in-law and my parents, back-to-back), I haven't accomplished much in the sewing arena!


I did, however, make this grocery bag dispenser for my mom.  (Tutorial here.)  I finished it just in the nick of time before they had to leave!

Amy Butler Grocery Bag Dispenser


My mom and I have very different taste, color-wise, so this one is really different than the first two I made. However, it was lots of fun to put together a color combo that was "out of the box" for me, and she really likes it!


While I haven't been sewing much, we have definitely been enjoying the great outdoors! I love spring weather in Myrtle Beach.





Be sure to check out the other fabulous finishes over at Sew & Tell Friday.


Have great weekend!

  14. I can see muscles in your thighs, I love it, and am jealous as my muscle is quickly turning into extra cellutlite.

    I love the Amy Butler fabric on the bag dispenser... I would probably choose it in another color pallete myself also, but I just love her fabric anyways!
