When Snowed in Sew!

Well this snow storm has really shutdown our southern city we just do not have the resources to deal with the snow and ice. So with no school and many businesses closed, we were rather home bound.  So when stuck at home why not sew! ^_^

I have been a rather creative slump. Yes, I made all those cute zipper bags but that was a follow this pattern type thing. I have had a block when coming up with something of my own.I have been wanting something new and modern for a purse. I love quilted bags but I wanted something different. ( I have made so many of those quilted bags) Finally I am happy with this one! Being snowed in I could not go shopping for this one. I had to use what was in my stash. So I dug out the leftovers from the Mod Quilt Sampler I made some time ago. Anyway this is the result. One purse, a wallet and a Snap Happy Bag.
 This shows the set- wallet closed.

 Here you can see the open wallet and the Snap Happy Bag, You can find the pattern HERE
I opened the wallet here to the outside so you could see the full pattern. This is a wallet pattern that I have come up with myself by combining several other quilted wallets with the options and techniques that I like. I do not sell the pattern, sorry.

Since most of the county has gotten snow of some sort what did you do during your snow storm?
