Satisfying Sewing

 Beautiful OOAK drawstring bags in   the shop

Beautiful OOAK drawstring bags in the shop

When I'm meeting a deadline and my work table is piled high, I often find sneaking in a little satisfying sewing helps me keep calm. Lately, these reversible bags have been the project of choice.

I've slowly been adding these simple, elegant drawstring bags to the shop. Fun to make and easy to sew, they make stylish storage for knitting projects, portable sewing projects, gift wrapping or travel necessities. They're reversible, too! I learned how to make these bags in any size by watching this YouTube video.

The bag shown here uses one of my eco-dyed silk panels and naturally dyed muslin. The same muslin is used for the interior. Easy!

 This is my go-to bean salad with champagne vinaigrette. It's simple, healthy and tastes like summer. You can find the recipe here.

If you're looking for something specific in the shop that isn't there, please let me know in the comments below or by email. There's a chance I just might have it.
