Secondly, Cuz I Said Sew turns one today. Happy birthday, blog! It's been a weird year for me; most are filled with ups and downs, but this year has seen higher highs and lower lows than usual. But whatever doesn't kill me can only make me stronger, right? I hope the coming year is more stable.
Moving on, as part of my resolution to work my way through the stash is to use up the scraps from other projects. I still had some glittery bat fabric left from the overnight bag and the clutch, and I enjoy making stuff for other people, and the blog's birthday was coming up. When such factors converge, it seems like fate, or close enough for me.

View H is a cylindrical bag. Once again, this fabric is not bidirectional, so I split the outer part of the bag on the bottom seam line again. The lining is the same green I used for the clutch. The ends were supposed to be piping (a cord encased in bias tape), but I used the bias tape to just cover the ends. If you go that route, you'll probably want the tape a little wider. This one is a little harder, but still easy enough for a beginner.
I'm giving away both of these, as well as some other assorted spooky goodies, as a thanks to my readers for sticking with me over the tumultuous year. To enter, just leave a comment to this post.
