I had a mild obsession with making Amy Butler swing bags and this was a wonderful way to use up scraps from those projects. The bottom line? Totally cute, totally easy (as in 15-minutes or less easy), no new fabric required and you can make them reversible!
I just had to model a few. I love the yellow contrast against my dark hair.
And here's a blue linen.
I've got a number of things in queue, but these mini-projects are feeding the productivity whore who lives inside of me. It makes me feel like I'm a busy bee. A few other seemingly quick-cute-and-easy projects I've got my eye on: verypurpleperson's gathered dress tutorial, Weiner Dog Tricks' Super Simple Nightie (via Sew Mama Sew), and the Spring Ruffle Top (also via Sew Mama Sew).
