"The essential conditions of everything we do must be choice, love, passion."
Immediately after a quilt top finish, I like to stop for a breather and clean the studio. Organizing is the therapy I need before saying hello to the next new thing. I sorted the scrap pile I'd made creating the Moda Modern, and when I opened my bins to put them away, it was like the scene from Jumanji where Alan Parrish was sucked into the board game.
All those glorious scraps were enticing me to 'do something' with them. I broke down right then, and made a little zipper bag. And then another. Everything I used is a leftover. One of the zippers and facings was even recycled from another project that I had torn apart.
While I was sewing--that mindless improvizational scrapping, I came up with ideas of how to shortcut the process. I'm gearing up to share these with you in a few days.
Zipper bags are one of the most useful items I make, and as a little project are the most rewarding. I start and finish the process in a short amount of time, and since I'm using up my scrap stash, they're lovely little presents to give away.
These 3 are already promised, and thankfully there are more in mid-process. I've never met anyone who didn't like a little pop of color in their life, and these are so fun to tuck into your purse.
Go make something you're passionate
Come on, Doxie girls.
Let's go sew.
