Dazed and just slightly confused: mad sewing adventures

I sewed these in one day because I enjoy living life on the edge. Okay, okay, I procrastinated!

I sewed all these in half a day because I enjoy living life on the edge. Okay, okay, I procrastinated.

Our family used to have elaborate Christmas parties, complete with a Christmas tree and barbecued meats. We’ve downscaled in the past couple of years. We do a pot luck instead — everyone brings something nice to eat — and presents are optional. Since I’ve been meaning to make bags for as many people as possible, I decided I would sew up some bags as pressies. But, as usual, I left things to the last minute, so on Christmas day, I was literally a flurry of activity. And I managed to catch my Chinese drama serials at the same time (an accidental new obsession). Talk about multi-tasking.

I was quite pleased with this batch of bags, as I managed to calculate how to get the most out of the fabrics I did have. Grandma was rather impressed, too.
