Finally SUMMER!

A couple of days ago I made a new item. I totally planned to blog about it right after I finished, but hmm, I don't know what happened...I think the summer lazies caught up with me. So anyway, I bought a big bag of material for $5 and in the bottom was some old upholstery samples...I decided to see what I could come up with that just used one sample instead of sewing them all together and making something. So, here is my before picture of what I started out with.

Zipper from the pants, two scraps from the bag I bought, and the upholstery sample.

I had also just purchased a zipper foot (finally!) for my sewing machine so I decided to test it out. Now I wish I had taken step by step pictures because at a couple of points I wasn't quite sure if it was going to turn out right or not. Here is the finished project (a change purse).

I also just created an Etsy shop this week, so the change purse and several of my other creations are available for purchase on Etsy at Or you can search for ScrappyBag on
