Stitch ALL The Things | Potions Bag Set

Hello, friends. It’s October already. I can’t believe it. I am about two weeks away from being done with all current bag orders, and that means I can see some quilting time in sight. Super happy about that, as Christmas will soon be here and I have three quilts to have finished by then. I’ll be temporarily disabling the order form on the website at the end of October, and won’t be accepting any orders until January of 2018. If I keep taking orders, I will never get to my Christmas sewing. Or get it finished, anyway. That’s not an acceptable outcome for me this year.

As far as last week’s list goes, I completed four bag orders. I love the zip top pouches, and especially the Sugar Skulls print. Also, it’s a good thing I love the Potions print so much, since I made three bag sets from that print last week, and have one more to make from that print this week.

I had one customer ask for a Potions Bag, some Grime Guards and an ORT container. If you aren’t sure what an ORT container/jar is, here’s a great post by The Stitching Corner that explains it well: ORT Jars. I looked up a tutorial online and was able to make a simple ORT container in matching fabric. I hope she likes it!

This recent week of sewing was definitely October themed. I’m ready for Halloween now! This bag was made from the last of bit of this beautiful fall fabric. Just looking at this bag makes me want to go bake a Pumpkin pie!

This week I have two more project bag orders, and then I had a request from my cousin to make three Hyacinth bags for her as Christmas gifts. I am not sure how long each bag will take to make, I’m estimating 3 days per bag. So I’ll probably only have one finished by the time next week rolls around.

This week’s To-Do list:

  • Complete two project bag orders
  • Begin sewing Hyacinth Bags

  1. Hi Christine,
    You really got a lot accomplished last week! I love that potion fabric – so cute! And that fall bag!! WOW – the colors in that are just fabulous and you matched them so well. I will check out your link for the ORT jar. I’ve never heard of them before – apparently I live in a cave and don’t get out much. ~smile~ Roseanne

  2. Those bags are really beautiful love the fall colours. So pleased to hear you are making space though for yourself to get some of your own sewing done.

  3. You sure have had another week of great sewing. I do hope you show your version of the ORT container. And the Hyacinth Bags too! Is that the pattern by Sew Sweetness?

  4. ORTS, I once made a bag with a hen on a nest, as the front pocket, and used all the thread ends under some wash-away, stitched them in place, and it was one way to use them up. Her nest was very multi-coloured!!

  5. Those sugar skulls and potions bottles are awesome! As per usual, you have been so busy. And three quilts by Christmas? You’re going to be even more busy! (But I think you might have 1 of the tops already completed, right? That helps!) I was not familiar with ORT jars, very cool.

  6. Wow, what great bags! The fabrics you offer are unique and wonderful so I am not surprised you have a lot of orders. I hope you get back to quilting soon.

Thank you so much for taking the time to comment... You just made my day!!
