Zippered Bags And Blimps

I obtained some zippers (like 30 of them) at Joann's last night and decided to play! I found a cute little tutorial on the Internet for making a lined zippered pouch. Can I just say, I LOVE the Internet? There are SO many free patterns and tutorials out there! There is almost no need to actually buy a pattern anymore!!

Here is my new little pouch- these things are addicting!! I want to just keep making and making them! I have been eyeing my fabric stash all day, looking for fabric combinations that would work for pouches. I could probably turn all my fabric into pouches right now, I'm so enthused about this little pouch :)

I also did some housecleaning today (boring, I know!). While I was outside shaking the rugs the Goodyear Blimp flew over! I looked at the pictures of the three different blimps on the Goodyear website and determined that it was the "Spirit Of Goodyear" blimp. I have no idea where it was coming from or where it was going. But it was nice to have the Blimp there for coverage of my housecleaning event :)

Not too much else. We had 2 thunderstorms overnight last night, and of course I woke up for both of them. So I'm really tired tonight- it might be another 8pm bedtime night! I'm going to make bee blocks tomorrow- I have three of them to do, and I don't want to get behind like I did last month. I also want to quilt my DQS7 top, but I'll see how the bee blocks go first!


  1. Your little bags are terrific - I really like the fabric. Ann :)

  2. The blimp was going to the city, it was outside of my work window this afternoon! By the way, the "connect to twitter" keeps popping up when I click on things in your site.
