My Creative Space - Getting my Mojo Back

Not much going on here, just trying to get my Creative Mojo back. I had the pieces ready for a zipper pouch ready for a little while and they had been staring at me saying "Please Sew Me!" for a while now... in an effort to get my groove on i finally sewed it tonight, i did it a bit rushed, but it is for my neice which is coming up from Melbourne for my party in 2 weeks (2 weeks eeeckkk!!) and she will love it.



I had screen printed my Bee Girl Design on some fabric scraps but didn't leave enough room at the top so the girl is a bit chopped off, but it was just an experiment...

Also i found this old skool pattern at the op shop. $1.50. BARGAIN! Look at those cute hippos!

For more creative inspiration pop over to Kootoyoo... her weekly Creative Space is what keeps me going each week, thanks so much!!

i am almost positive I have used that pattern to make hippos when I was in elementary school. I don't remember much except they used an ENORMOUS amount of stuffing and we couldn't get the legs to stay underneath...the body was so big and heavy that the legs kept collapsing.

What a cute pouch! I tend to have trouble getting from the idea to the prep, and then from the prep to the sewing. I feel like it's going to be soooo hard, and then when I actually do it I'm amazed how simple it was. :-/
