Sew Stitchy Bag

Yesterday in the awful heat the only really cool room in the house was the sewing room so I hid myself away in there for the afternoon and stitched this sewing bag.

I used a Sew Stitchy Jelly Roll by Aneela Hoey and some yardage.   It is really roomy and has a large pocket on the front and back and small ones on the sides.  I decided to use bag pellon which has given the bag a lot of shape but was very bulky to sew when I had to go through a few layers.   The pattern was from the Moda Bake Shop Fresh Fabric Treats Book.  

It has rained here today and the weather is so much cooler.   I did some baking this morning and am now going to settle in for more sewing.   I think I will use some of the leftover jelly roll strips to make a similar bag and pincushion to this one that I made Peg last year.

Hope you are all enjoying some cooler weather wherever you are.

Happy Stitching
