Craft of choice

Lately, my craft of choice has been sewing. Being the "I want it NOW" kind of person that I am, the majority of the projects I take on are pretty quick ones - but I'm still pretty proud of them. :) I'd love to hear what you think.

Here's a makeup case

And another similar one

It all started with a tote bag and I've made a few more - some are even sort of reversible.

Coffee cup holders (I used to always get 1 or 2 of those cardboard sleeves or double cups)

I now also spend hours scouring the internet for sewing blogs and free tutorials and have been neglecting my mommy blogs :(

But they're fun:
The original tutorial I made a small pouch from. I figured out how to line it afterwards.
A fun and easy tote bag I made for Vicky.
And there are a zillion here I want to try out.
I made up the coffee holder one myself, based on one I bought at a craft fair and one from second cup. If you like them guess what advantage there is to being co-owner of an online store? ;)

All of your projects look great! The link to all the pattern ideas will keep me busy for a long time.

Those are totally awesome.
I LOVE the make-up pouches - or whatever they are.
