Pretty in Pink

Just when I don't think I have enough hobbies that involve collecting random things that are nearly impossible to organize, I found sewing. I guess I shouldn't say I just recently found it... I was quite impressed by the bags I made my 3 cooking buddies for Christmas, but I have recently decided I want to sew more things.

I think what really spurred this was the discovery of the Pink Penguin blog. Seriously, the girl can sew! Plus, her style is totally what I like. I love the vintage, retro look and feel, as well as handmade items that don't look TOO handmade. The way I actually stumbled across her blog was through a newsletter I receive from Photojojo. They sent the link for making this cute camera bag.

Anyway, she has a great tutorial that I was finally able to use this week. I, of course, had to scour eBay for a good deal on cute fabric, wait for it and then find time to make it. I have to say I'm proud of my buttonhole and shaping the corners of the bias tape. I love it and have already received nice compliments on it (not that I was showing it off). And naturally, it's pink.

PS I'm baking some Ginger Sugar Cookies right now. If they turn out, I'll share the recipe here.
