Smunday Stash Report - late again this week

My week can be divided into 2 distinct parts - productive and not so much. LOL. At the beginning of the week I was able to get stuck into a variety of projects, all for Handmade With Love, particularly for the Comic Con stall we will have. Its not till September but since I will be out of the country from the end of July and have some other travel before then I am trying to get as much as I can made before I then.

This month I have set myself a challenge to make 20 things for the stall (I managed 12 last month) but had done nothing in the first week or so.

This week I got my act into gear and I made 8 Teeny Tiny Zipper Purses, using this pattern by So Sew Easy. .41m

 I made one ear bud pouch - Tardis fabric is so cool .07m

  and I tried out this new messenger bag pattern by Crazy Little Projects. 1.87m

Its big enough to carry a full size laptop (mine pictured is 15" and there is heaps of room for a bigger one) I talked about the hassles I had with it (all stemming from me assuming I knew what to do.. hint. I didn't ) on my Wip Wednesday blog post 

No purchases this week so all profit!

  1. What a cute bunch of tiny zipper purses and that little earbud pouch is the cat's meow. Your messenger bag doesn't look like it is big enough for a 15" laptop. That means it would hold a Surface 3 probably. I need to look into making some kind of bag for mine.

    1. The measurement for the bag was 17" across and the side gusset was 3" finished so its a really good size! I put pockets inside at the front and back so its got a place for phone, purse, keys and maybe cord although that would depend on how big the cord is. I am tempted to keep it for myself but since the fabric was donated to our group to make items to sell I would need to buy it. I do love it
