morsbags

I can't believe it's been a month since I've posted anything on my blog. I haven't made a single new card in a MONTH! My poor Etsy shop is pretty empty. I just haven't felt like making cards. Life's been busy with work, finishing our basement, and an almost three year old. I haven't been completely unproductive because I have rediscovered how much I love to sew. I purchased a clearance Orla Kiely tablecloth at Target awhile ago. I showed some restraint and only bought one. I wish I would have bought them all--I love the way my new shopping bags turned out:
I used these morsbags instructions. The bags are easy to make and they fold up nicely to fit in my purse. My bags weren't completely in the spirit of morsbags since I purchased something new to make them instead of using thrifted fabric.
I like the idea of morsbags so much I'm making some for their Nolcha challenge. I registered a pod (just me for now), ordered my labels, and started cutting and sewing. These two bags are made from a thrifted shower curtain (from Target--still new in the package).

I have two more cut out and ready to sew together. I also have seven more bags cut out from an adorable polka dot sheet, so I've got lots of sewing ahead of me!
