Slow sewing week

This past week and this week have been really slow for sewing! Last week was the fair and we were there a lot. Plus I taught on Wednesday night. I did the Triangle Frenzy class which was a great class, even for a beginner. This 8 year old wanted to sew and her mom didn't know how, so they came to class, the mom cut, I helped the girl learn to sew, and the top was done that night. It was so much fun. The class went great. I even had my first guy in a class and he was the only one who finished!
I was also busy in my free time creating this money bouquet for a bridal shower on Friday. It turned out cute.

We went to the carnival/rodeo on Saturday night and the kids got to ride the merry go round for the first time.
The last couple nights we've been without the kids due to change in plans, so I gathered all my stuff for the craft show, then spent a bit of time sewing. I created these 3 bags over past 2 nights. They turned out super cute and were fun and fast to make. I hope with some modification they will make cute samples for a class.

I finally used up all the Juggling Summer mini charms I won from Jan.
