Sewing presents and catching up

I bet you have heard this before, but in 2016 I am going to try to make as much from my stash as I can. I will need to buy stuff here and there, zippers, batting etc. But I really should stay away from getting more fabric for my stash.... Let's see how this goes :-)

I have been sewing a lot of presents - mostly catching up. I can't show them all, because they haven't been gifted yet. But I can show you these pillows:

I love these fabrics from Cotton + Steel
I know it's a simple design, but I really didn't want to draw attention away from the prints...

I also made this Sew Together Bag (pattern by SewDemented), I had the pattern for the longest time before finally putting on my brave pants and making one! 

Considering how much it holds, it really isn't that big when it's closed. 
It fits into a tote quite easily, and can be brought everywhere. Perfect for handstitching projects.

Now my kids want one each, they have started pulling fabrics....

I agree on your pillows, the simpler design showcases the fabrics and I think that is important too.

I haven't made one of those bags yet. It's tempting.....
