Ginger Dot WIPs

I started back up with some more pillows. Actually, I started back up to finish off the remaining pillows I had cut a while back. Either way - I am sewing again :)

These are not yet complete, but I should be able to get to them this weekend.

The lining is a nice spring yellow. And looking outside right now, it looks like Spring...wet and dreary :P

And did you notice the closure? I decided to go with a zipper this time. Why? Just because.

And now for one of the reasons why it is still a WIP (work in progress) started out having stacked circles appliqued (kind of) to the front. But it just did not look right.

So now I have these stacked circles. The question is, what will they become? I am leaning towards hair stuff (headbands most likely), accents for a table runner edge or a cute decoration for the front of a burlap fabric basket.

Any other ideas or opinions on what the could morph into?

uhh, coin purses... for the poor! Guess they're kinda small... Nice to see you sewing.

Been looking at blog layouts, and I really like your little boxes on the left. Thinking of changing from 3 to 2 columns, but Stormy helped me with my blog and I'm afraid I'll mess something up. Did you do yours yourself?

Happy New Year!

I love the spring-like pillow, but I'm not sure what to do with the circles. I'm thinking embellishment on a bag or that headband idea is good, too.
