handmade holiday part I

I made this little bag for my sister for Christmas:

I’ve been wanting to make this pouch ever since seeing the anthropologie-inspired tutorial here.

It looked a bit intimidating at the beginning, but it’s a wonderful tutorial to follow. Very quick and easy. I left a few of the steps out. After all, I was in a sewing frenzy and there were only a few days left until Christmas (with more than a few projects still left on my to do list). So, no zipper tassel for this makeup bag.

My sister really loves it. And so do I. I’m going to whip one up for myself, too. There’s going to be a lot more selfish sewing going on around here now that the holidays are over :)

quilt-y inspiration

Where do you go for a little hit of quilting inspiration? I always check out the Anthropologie website to take a peek at the bedding. There are always great pattern and fabric combinations. These quilts are an Anthro/APC collaboration and are simply gorgeous (although a bit expensive):
