Keepin'on Keepin' on!

I got my strawberry jam made. I ended up using the packets of pectin made by Ball because their recipe called for ALOT less sugar and you didn't have to cook anything! I made one batch using sugar and one batch using Splenda. Yumm-o! I have found using a pastry blender to crush the strawberries works great.

Today during Peanut's nap I also made a new bag. I used a Martha Stewart pattern to make it. Hers called for using a vintage pillowcase which I didn't have, so I cut my fabric to the size of a pillowcase and added a seam down the side. I made two of these so I could line the bag also. I am really happy with how it turned out. I think I will be making more of these.

Hey I just found this on Facebook! Didn't know you had this blog. I'm going to try your strawberry bread. I had some recently, and was looking for a recipe. Those bags you made are so cute! You should to get an Etsy shop.

You can sew and all that jazz? I thought I knew, but this is amazing! I actually like the bag! And you know me and my ant-craftiness. I look at it a needle and it trembles. I want a cute bag now! :)
