It’s school holidays here so there’s not a lot of sewing going on but I did make a drawstring bag just for me today. The Joel Dewberry fabric is one I purchased on a whim while on holiday earlier this year, I love the colours and the large design makes it perfect for a bag. I used the lined drawstring bag tutorial by Jeni Baker. I love how this pattern can be made from fat quarters as I have plenty of those!

If you’re wondering about the books, they’re all on loan to me and I haven’t read any of them yet. It’s exciting to have such a big pile of books to read.

I might not be getting any sewing done but I am plotting a future quilt. Bonnie from pinkxstitches has organised a Donut Quiltalong on Instagram (#donutqal). I’ve put together this pile of possible fabrics, I chose fabrics that made me think of chocolate, berries and sprinkles. Of course, I may yet change my mind completely.

    I made two of those bags last year as Christmas presents – think I need to make some more this year – they are so useful!

    very nice, drawstring bags are so useful 🙂 Looking forward to seeing possible donuts in your future! what's that brown fabric with the tiny colored squares (third from the bottom under the Hope Valley)?

    Love the fabric combination on the drawstring bag – works so well with that pattern. I've been seeing the donutqal on IG and wishing for some spare time so I could have a play a long as well. Love your fabric pull for it. Perfect!

    Your bag looks great.
    Your fabric choice is fantastic. I'd like to make that quilt, too. It's completely unreasonable. So I don't. I don't have the pattern yet either. But I love to see what everyone else is making.
