I haven't had much time for any interneting lately. Our new pup, Ripley, has been keeping me pretty busy. I'm also doing a three week mini-mester statistics course over my winter break, so I come home around noon and get stuck on puppysitting duty until 5pm or so. I wanted to be able to make a tutorial and a big last minute Christmas crafting post a few days before Christmas, but I haven't even touched my sewing machine in two weeks, except for some last minute sewing at 11pm Christmas Eve. I was able to make my stepmom a set of makeup pouches following this tutorial, and it was a lot simpler than I had anticipated (or else I would have just stopped after one pouch)

I normally try to avoid zippers because I don't have a zipper foot and I have no idea what I'm doing with them. I like the look of the covered zipper ends a lot. I think it makes it easier to sew, too.
I hope everyone had a lovely Christmas. I got tons of Longhorns stuff, a Pulse smartpen for school,  my first ever mani-pedi, and a bunch of yummy molasses cookies that I hoarded in the breadbox and ate ALL of on Christmas, so I would say it was pretty good.
