And is anybody else having troubles getting started working through it? I can't be the only one, please tell me I'm not the only one!

I've been e-mailing random projects & tutorials to myself on a regular basis for...oh...months & months, but I realized they just get lost in my e-mail & I have a tendency to never look at them again. So I thought that maybe if I keep them nice & organized here, I might actually remember to do some of the projects. Plus, maybe you'll find some fun projects you'd like to try, and maybe some you've seen before & have forgotten about too. I mean, come on, I can't be the only one who has this problem! :)
I'll keep updating this list with new projects & hopefully as I complete them, I can also include links to my finished projects. Lofty goals, me thinks. For now I'll try to keep the commentary to a minimum, but if you know me at all (or have been a reader for, oh, say a day!) you'll know I'm a bit of a rambler. See, here I go again...
So, let's get this party started:
Fat Quarter Handbag from Sew, Mama, Sew!
Zipper Bag from Everywhere Orange
Printed Key Fobs from Create & Delegate
Modge Podge Screen Printing from Craftgrrl (and about a hundred other places, but this is the link I kept)
Milkmaid Skirt from Crafterhours
Penelope Pleated Purse from I Still Love You
Cute Boxy Pouch from A New Creation
Gathered Clutch from Noodlehead
Candy Corn Bracelet from Epbot
Crochet Yoda from Happy Together
Triangular Pouch from Innocentia
Easy Bias Tape Cutting Method from Stop Staring and Start Sewing
Crazy Nine-Patch Quilt from Oh, Fransson!
Hexie Caddy from Penny's Hands
Sweater Sling Purse from Make It and Love It
Reversible Bag from Very Purple Person
Pleated Tote from Artsy Crafty Babe
Mug Rug from That Girl...That Quilt (guesting at Stash Manicure)
Phoebe Bag from Artsy Crafty Babe
Hmmm...now that I compile the list, it doesn't seem nearly as long as I remember, surely I'm missing a few! I need to skim through my patterns too & add these to the list since I think seeing everything listed out may just be the kick in the pants I need to get in gear.
If you got a favorite pattern or tutorial or want to share your crafting to do list, feel free to leave a comment & share! I'd love to see your ideas!
Oh, and you can easily find this list again if you visit the blog & click on the "Project List" at the top of the page!
Until next time...

I'm telling you, I don't think I could have been happier with how this turned out! I'm toying around with the idea of making a tutorial and/or a pattern for this, but the thought of all the pictures & explanation that would be needed make me think I'll probably push that aside if I'm being honest with myself. Right now, with the exception of one freezer paper stencil piece (with a few notes on it), the entire pattern is just in my head. Trying to sufficiently explain some of the steps could be difficult, even if the overall construction of the purse isn't terribly hard. I'll admit, attaching the gusset will certainly try your patience, but I think it's all worth it in the end. At the very least, I'll add this pattern to my list available for custom order, so just shoot me an e-mail or leave a comment (make sure your e-mail address is attached to your profile, or you include it in your comment!) if you're interested.
