WIP Wednesday - Productive Procrastination

Once again my productive procrastination skills are in effect...instead of working on finishing up the UFO's on my list or prepping for the sew along that started Monday, I started new projects...but they are orders, so it's all good.  Last weekend I finished up the last of the Magnolia Mini Messenger then started 2 new rush order purses for little girls...  Fortunately the Emma purses are pretty fast to sew, already over halfway done with the first one and the second one is also prepped!
Outside is all together, just needs the inside finished!
These little purses are going to be super sparkly thanks to pre-glittered fabrics!  For the most part, the glitter is pretty stuck on there, even ironing directly on top of it isn't knocking any off!  I am somehow ending up with extra sparkle on my clothes, but I can't tell where it's coming off....
All the fabrics for both Emmas, the green is even sparkly!
The Penny Inn sew along is also on my list to get started this week, I think I've decided on my fabrics and I'm planning on getting caught up this weekend! 
All the pretty Alison Glass fabrics!
I'm not sure how much I can fit on the flap, but hopefully a lot!
I'm trying not to add more to my list for the month, but I spaced out a birthday coming up next weekend, so it's time to squeeze in a quick Minecraft messenger bag!  I have to make him something awesome; his mom is the one that made my son a giant octopus this year...but I'm sure she'd kill me if I made him a giant whale or fish to go with his own giant tempted....

Current Projects:

  • 2 Emma Purses 
  • SuperWhoLock purse (matching mine)
  • Magnolia messenger bags (4) 2 totally finished, I should be able to get the last 2 done by the weekend since the pattern is actually a fast sew!
