Weekend Sewing Projects

I had such a bad, un-creative weekend! By Sunday afternoon I had achieved absolutely nothing and i could not even blog or surf as my internet was full of it! I called my MIL and she had been having a great sewing weekend. She suggested I make a new, shorter list of projects as it seems my problem was I had too many things I wanted to do and could not decide where to start. I finally got going late Sunday afternoon. What a waste of precious time!

I grabbed my new book, Sew Darn Cute by Jenny Ryan and decided to start making something from my somewhat smaller list of projects. It worked like a charm! I have wanted to sew this little travel pillow since I got the book. It is ideal timing as I am flying off to Chicago in a few weeks' time and always have trouble sleeping on the plane. This little pillow should make it easier. I should have done a bit more patchwork on it but was too lazy to bother. The other side is the softest candy pink fleece!

I also made a pouch for my new mobile phone. Not the best effort but at least I got going again and felt so much better.

That is so adorable, I love the fabric. I personally am a fabric-a-holic. I HAVE to pick up this book, can you tell me where I might find it? Looks perfect for those quick weekend projects and great for my daughter too!!
Have a great Monday!
