At the beginning of the summer, Molly and I started working on a project to design and make swag bags for Design Ethos (a graphic design conference that SCAD hosted). The bags are made out of spare canvas from a shop in Savannah, and the straps are made from old banners from a museum in Savannah. All locally recycled/reused. After a ridiculous amount of cutting (by Mol!) and sewing and sewing and sewing and sewing...we finished and delivered the bags a couple weeks ago! We are keeping our fingers crossed that another job making similar products will come from this.

Woah been bad at posting! Here are some pictures of a quilt I just finished for Maia in exchange for some jewelry she made me and my sister. It's lap-sized (if that makes any sense) and is mostly made out of purchased material, but the blue fabric I dyed with indigo and the grey wool is from a sweater that Maia shrunk. My favorite part is the little pocket! I like how the different weights of fabric quilted..the best part is taking it out of the washing machine once everything has been sewed and seeing the different textures. I am getting better at stitching the binding on..and I owe my choice of red accents to Molly!
