My Rusty likes to sew and I love that he likes to sew! Saturday, he decided to make drawstring bags to hold his bullet casings, mostly because his wife hadn't gotten around to it yet. *ahem* . He reloads his bullets he uses for the cowboy action shoot (SASS) he participates in every month and needed a bag to collet the brass. Of course, I had to document this project....
First he settled on the pattern. Russ followed Jen's (Glinda Quilts) pants bag tutorial. Jen sent me a pants bag as a gift last year, so I gave that to him to help him see how it was constructed. That was just me being overly helpful.
I caught him using his pocket knife to trim the threads. More manly than scissors, I guess. *wink*
Other than one broken needle from sewing over a pin, he did a great job!
This is one of the two bags he made. I didn't get a photo with the drawstrings, but you get the idea.
While he was working on his projects, I was making a quilt top out of the Sew Sweet Bee house blocks that were made for me earlier this year. I chose to add my initial instead of another house. Notice the fabric used for my letter "A"?
It was a fun day....=)
