Sewing Mojo and the Park West Bag

Wow,  it's been a while! As I posted about earlier, my family and I recently moved and I feel like the move has encompassed my entire life this past month. I always seem to underestimate the amount of effort and time it takes to move and the daunting task of making your new house "home". During this time sewing has been little more than a pipe dream. I did manage to get my new sewing area set up but I have had so little time to do any actual sewing in it.         

It's still a bit sparse as far as the walls but this is definitely the most organized it will ever be. As of this moment there are millions of tiny pieces of thread and fabric scattered on the carpet and notions strewn about (I am quite the messy sewer). I am super excited to have my own dedicated space to sew in, and so much room to spread out (and buy more fabric).

Now that things are put together, I'm hoping I can get my mojo back and will have some more completed projects to share soon. This was my first finish in our new home, a Park West bag by Sew Sweetness as picked by the winner of my SMS Giveaway. This bag is made of a hodge podge of Pat Bravo, Amy Butler and Allison Glass fabrics. This combo came together by accident, but I love these fabrics together.


I do love that this bag has a zip top closure and an interior zip pocket, its the perfect size for a large hand bag or small diaper bag.


The exterior side pockets are a great place to stash your phone or water bottle on the go.



Happy Friday!

Love the bag and your new sewing space!!!

Moving royally bites the big one….but knowing you'll have a room to sew makes it not so bad.

Have a great weekend! Cindy

What a great sewing room you have and I'm sure you'll have a great time sewing in there. I was one of the testers for this bag and it's another of my favorites. Simple with loads of room. I'm going to be your newest follower after I post this comment. I love your blog and look forward to your future posts.
