Busy me

This is a busy week for me as I am getting ready to go to KY to see my kids. However, I am trying to squeeze in some sewing.

Today:
Make lining for red yo-yo bag, I’m thinking hearts.
Finish Nikolas’s pillowcase with his name on it.
Feb. Strolling the Block

Happy Monday

Worked on a denim bag today. Put red yo-yo’s on it and hopefully tomorrow I will get the lining put in.
^^ January block for Strolling the Block. I thought it turned out pretty cute. I’ve started February’s block.

Made 2 jungle pillowcases last week, I’m just a little slow taking pics lately.

Reverse stitch

Today I re-worked the two sided fabric bag I had made. I just didn’t like the bottom of the bag. Then I made a smaller bag out of the same fabric but I ran out of fabric before I got the strap made. I can’t decide if I want to make a solid black strap or get more fabric.

Tote

Yesterday using the black double sided fabric I made a bag that is too large for a purse. I still have lots of that fabric left so I’m thinking I will make a bag that is purse size and I will have enough for a make-up bag.

I also made 6 pillowcases for my grandson and 6 for his little playmate.

No photos today. I will get that done today.

Fabric

The following fabric will be used for pillowcases for my grandson and his little playmate.
On the blue fabric I’m going to applique’ the child’s name on the pillowcase.
I loved this bear fabric. Nikolas carries his bear with him everywhere, so this fabric was appropriate.
I chose the jungle fabric for Jesse, he loves giraffes. I tried hard to find fabric that just had giraffes. I think I’m going to have to search the internet for that.
The fabric above and below is two-sided fabric that I will use to make reversible bags.

Sewing News

Finished Lacy’s bag yesterday, I do have photos but I haven’t uploaded them yet.

I have Jan and Feb blocks fused for Strolling the Block. The quilting group is in the morning but I’m not sure I’m going. I really want to go but I haven’t felt well today. Jan and Feb block’s are going to be just as great as Dec’s is. lol Nothing like tooting your own horn. I still havn’t figured out a way to get the trim on the house for the Dec’s block.

Pat Sloan sent out her newletter with the Jan block for Farmer’s Market. I couldn’t print the pattern because I ran out of ink, I will pick another cartridge up tomorrow or the next day. Of course, I’m anxious to do the block.

Hope everyone is having a great day!
