Busy sewing day

Well after not really doing much- I have been very busy sewing today- just felt like it- Funny thing that is with sewing- I really have to want to sew to enjoy it, otherwise it feels like a task.
So today's creations
Snack sack- reusable ziplock bag

ruby doll- my variation- lost the leg pattern and no printer so designed my own- Alyssa has called her Olivia

and a skirt out of 2 FQ's. really is just the width of the fabric and whatever length sewn into a circle then hemmed and a casing for the elastic- Super simple- I thought it would be a little too long- but I actually love it- Alyssa has butterfly sandals that will match very well. She is also wearing the singlet I refashioned the this week.

I have been quiet lately

I have not done much sewing lately- a lot of fabric buying though- 18yards coming my way LOL. Have I mentioned how much I love Etsy???

anyway here are 2 of my latest creations.
A ruffle singlet for miss Alyssa and a camera strap cover for me. I have to make the pockets bigger next time- they were a fraction too small for my lens cover but will fit my extra SD cards. Oh and yes I have a new baby my Nikon d3000 SLR

In other VERY exciting news- I am teaching someone to sew- I am loving it- only one lesson so far but so happy to be teaching!!! I hope to get more people interested too!! that and cooking classes (I hope to run at some stage will keep me VERY busy LOL)
