WIP Wednesday Simply Small

Drawstring bag

Yesterday I started out cutting pillowcase kits.

But then I got side tract and started the Drawstring Bag By Jeni B. from In Color Order.
I also added the pockets that Terri Harlan from Sew Fantastic.
The bag is going to be my guild's project for July. 

I should have broken up the fabric a little bit better. 
But what is done is done.

So this morning I started back in on the pillowcases.

pillow case kits

I am not really supposed to be getting them done now but I can not help it!

One of the ladies from my guild donated a huge stack of fabric and it just laying around here.
Needless to say it is really getting in the way.

Best I could do is start in on it and coordinate it all as much as I can.
I am almost to the end of it.

On the lighter side...
When I was handed the pile of fabric another lady from the guild jokingly said to the one who donated the fabric; I bet that didn't even put a dent in your stash! 
The lady that donated said: Nope, it didn't!  

And I was like; Wow!

The pillowcases are for my guild's service project for the coming fall/winter.
They have coordinated with one of the local Girl Scout troops in town to teach them how to sew.
Plus all the pillowcases that will be done will be counted for the 1 Million Pillowcase Challenge that American Patchworking & Quilting Magazine is hosting, and all the completed pillowcases will be donated to Shriner's Hospital for Children in Cincinnati or Pillows of Hope to Cincinnati Children's Hospital.
Wish we could have found a closer organization. 
But you get what you get and don't throw a fit!
As my daughter's second grade teacher would put it!

Hey, that bag is AWESOME. No need to worry at all about the fabric break-up!
