Fifteen Minute Challenge - Week 6

Finally, after two more fifteen minute sessions, I defeated the circle bag!
On Wednesday, almost the entire paper piecing class hovered over it during lunch, until we finally figured out how exactly the pocket side matched to the bottom to sew together properly.
Pattern is McCall's 6374, made about 2" taller overall.
On Thursday, I whipped together a pattern folder to go with it.
Which also folds into an easel for easy reading.
It tucks nicely into the bag for my sister to carry yarn and a knitting pattern.
And Friday-Monday, I was at my college reunion/mother's birthday party, so I got my daily 15 minutes in my hand sewing project, restoring my great-grandmother's quilt.

  1. Yay! Go you ! You whipped the circle bag into submission.

    I love that floral fabric you used too.

    Feels great when you finish a project you've been struggling with doesn't it?

  2. Nice fabric. Great week of sewing catch you next week to see what you have been up to.
