FRIDAY'S PROJECTS!!!


This is a lunch bag, made from another lunch bag (torn apart for the pattern) made by a friend.. The only help I gave was a little comment here or there or a yes or a no....I was busy putting buttons on my husbands shirt....the one in an earlier post. Yes, you heard it here, finally that shirt has buttons!! YEPEEEEE!!! Another gal came later, the one who did the apron in an earlier post and she just took the bib part off and recentered it. What a fun day with friends....and such motivation to finish the little mundane touches of a project.

Get ready, it is almost September...can you believe it? I am planning another giveaway...so stay tuned.

Yes September is almost here. Who would have thought that at 71 I would still be excited that 1st day of school is almost here. Its late this year, the Monday after Labor Day. Hip Hip Hoorah.

That lunch bag turned out really nice. I'm glad you had a nice sewing day with friends. How much longer will you be in A.S.??? I don't know how long you have already been there and I think you told me you are to be there for 3 years??

Yea! Hubby's shirt has buttons!
Love the fabric you used on the lunch bag!

Barb you did a great job on that lunch box. I actually picked up a pattern for one last week but did not buy it because they make them so complicated. I wanted to make some of my daughter so I just might try this technique. What did you use to insulate it with?

Buttons? you put the buttons on? Ha ha. I have enjoyed the little comments on those buttons. Kind of like watching for the Hitchcock cameo in any of his movies.

September means I will be another year older. I will be watching for the giveaway too.

That is pretty! Buttons are such a boring job to do. I've made Mike several shirts. The last one hung in the closet for a year. I put snaps on that one.

That's a cute lunch bag! I need to make one for myself to replace a laptop case I carry around!

September, already? Labour Day - the first Monday in September is the official end of our summer. School starts the following day. Soon I will have to bring my tropical plants inside - as soon as the temperature drops to 5C overnight! Great little lunch bag. And I am looking forward to your giveaway.
