CDR Bags - 31-40

Almost halfway there! Bags 31-40; 60 to go.
Soccer, cars x2, motorcycles, flames, fire and rescue x3, another soccer, and Teletubbies.

It has been fun going through my stash to find kid-friendly fabrics and use them up. I'm ending up with smaller pieces that I can donate to someone doing craft sewing. I've already started on 41-50. I sew every day and usually make a bag or two when I can. 

Here's hoping the kids of CDR enjoy their library bags!

CDR bags update, 21-30!

Police, hippie x2, cats, dog paws, lizards, pigs x3, and strawberries. 

30 down, 70 to go.

Are you sewing anything for your community? I'm loving de-stashing and making something that someone else can use. I have a bag to collect the stash pieces that are too small for this project, but ready to be used for something else. That will be gifted via Freecycle when it's full. I suspect I'll fill up more than one bag!

CDR Bag Project, Bags 11-20

4 police department bags, 5 dog fabric bags, and 1 more wacky stripe bag.

20 down, 80 to go!
I keep thinking now that when the 100 bags project is done, I just might keep sewing and give bags to the local library for kids to use. Who knows? Right now, I'm on a roll!

Alicia's quilt - from fabric to precious

Alicia is a friend of my daughter's, and therefore, a friend of mine. That's the way it works, right? I made a simple pinwheel quilt for her baby some time ago. He's been born and growing like a weed. Ivan is his name. She posted a picture on Facebook today showing Ivan sleeping on the quilt. This is why we sew. From fabric bits to a peaceful baby sleeping. So beautiful.

This is a cute dog/cat fabric. It was a perfect fit for Alicia. 

A couple of rows and then: 

Yep, that's why we sew.
