My Productivity Has Dramatically Dropped

I went back to work on Sept 8th after having been off for 7 months - it hasn't been great on many fronts. I love my job and I'm enjoying my new teaching assignment. Unfortunately, I went back to work with a sinus infection (that I thought was cleared up, but it wasn't) that went from bad to worse. I was off half the week last week, back in today, but I maybe shouldn't have been. I've been on antibiotics for 3 weeks or so and have another 9 days to go (not that I'm counting or anything). I am feeling better, but this thing has kicked my ass.

I did manage to make myself a new pencil case. I have to move around a lot this year and was suffering for an organizational solution. I remembered the sew together bag that a friend has and I got busy.

I used Tula Pink's new fabric line Eden and I love my new pencil case. I have 1 progress shot:

And one shot of it full of my stuff. It holds a lot:

My sister might like one for make up brushes - I'm hoping she does then I can cross one thing off my Xmas list.

p.s. I used this tutorial to help - has a lot more photos than the pattern and helps it all make sense.


  1. Sorry to hear you had a rough start to the school year - take care!! Love the bag - at least you got to sew something.

  2. I read the tutorial on this bag - very interesting and a lot of work - your bag is fabulous!
