Hunky fireman - comin' up! ;)

Christmas sewing is well underway - here are a few more finishes to report (and to cross off of my To Do list - YAY!) :)

Up first are a couple of superhero capes, made with superhero fabric, which seems kind of Inception-y ;)  These will be mailed out tomorrow :D

Our oldest son is in a Secret Santa swap with his girlfriend's friends/family.  The lady he got paired with is a rather feisty, as we understand, senior citizen.  I offered to make her a zippy because - well - I like to make zippies :D  I hope she'll enjoy this one - I had some serious fussy cutting to do to get this guy front and center ... front and back, LOL! The sMiLe tag is stitched to the lining so when the bag is opened, the recipient will see a command to smile ... and hopefully ... they will :)

This bag will be entered into Bag It!, and both of these items are posted to Ho Ho Ho and On We Sew for December :D

[X] Superhero capes
[X] Zippy for Secret Santa

The boys come over every Sunday for supper :) :) :) so as soon as I get this post finished I'm off to the kitchen to bake a cake for dessert - I'm putting them to work when they arrive, putting up the new Christmas tree.  If the cake turns out well, I may even be able to persuade them to help me decorate, lol!  Christmas sewing will recommence tomorrow!


  1. I think that feisty senior citizen will love her new zippy pouch Sandra, your son will get lots of kudos for coming up with that gift :)

  2. I LOVE that zippy pouch fabric, what a great gift!!!

  3. Great use of the fireman print. I've got a few cuts of that too, just sitting and waiting for that perfect project. So glad you found one!

  4. Ooooh is never thought of fussy cutting for a punch! Thanks for the idea! (One zip off the total!)

  5. What a fun pouch, Sandra!!! Awesome fussy cutting - it's perfect. No way could your son have purchased something as good if he'd had to go shopping. He's lucky to have you sew for him.

  6. Great pouch. Thanks for stitching along with Elm Street Quilts Bag It!

  7. Great zippy pouch!!! I think she will (senior) will love it! Great capes too! You are so lucky to have your boys home every Sunday!!! I miss mine so much; we only get about once a month :( But at least I get that and phone calls! Hugs, Mickie

  8. Lovin' this zippy pouch, Hunky Fireman! Great job.

    1. Danette thank you! I'm so sorry - I can't comment on your blog or reply to your comment becaue G+ blocks me (I'm not a G+ member). Your triangle pouch and cellphone/business card holder will make a beautiful gift!


Thanks for visiting! I try to reply to all comments - if you're a No Reply blogger or using Google + I can't get your email address so please leave it (obfuscated somehow) in the message so I can write back (and snoop your blog, lol) - thank you!
