Happy Monday

I know Monday’s are usually blah but I had a great day.

First I made this bag. and this is the lining.  Here is the tutorial I used to make this little bag. http://craftapple.wordpress.com/2006/02/21/the-lindie-bag-free-pattern/

Then I made three billfolds. These are so fast and fun. I had been planning to make them so I had the snaps and instead of using interfacing I used fusible fleece.

 Aren’t these too cute?

Got my next swap partner so I’m going tomorrow and look around for fabric that jumps out at me. The colors my partner requested I don’t know that I have ever shopped for so this will be an adventure to me.

Hope everyone had a great Monday and a better Tuesday!

The devil made me do it. :D

Yesterday just as I finished up the last item for the giveaway tomorrow, DD wonders into the room inquiring if I had any more of a certain fabric because she wanted me to duplicate it for her. I lay the pattern on said fabric and I had just enough. So I cut it out and would you believe I cut one with the fabric making the design going the wrong way. So I did what anyone would do, I called the quilt shop in New Mexico where I bought it. Of course, the name of the fabric in the selvege was gone. So I emailed a copy of the fabric to the shop owner. Several hours later she emailed me back, no she didn’t have any. So we went to Hancock’s afterall they were having a sale.  Four yards of fabric later and lots of notions we came back home. DH was a sweetie and he cooked dinner while I whipped up this little number for DD.

Can you see the covered button? It is the face of the cutest little red spider. I had to be careful to make sure her little face showed.  🙂  The things mothers do for their babies. 😉 and the is the lining.

I did start looking on the internet for the fabric that I messed up. I will find it.

Have a wonderful weekend! Don’t forget to check back tomorrow for the winners in my birthday giveaway.

Tried 2 new bag patterns yesterday. The Lindie Bag was the first pattern I tried out. This bag is fast to make and I think turned out very cute.


The next pattern I got from Martha Stewart. Now Martha suggested you use a pillowcase to make this bag. Nope, I didn’t use a pillowcase, I used fabric.


So I’ve been staying out of trouble by sewing.

The bunny fabric arrived today and it is even cutier in person. I’ll take a photo as soon as I can get the fabric away from Nikolas.

Blue bag, stitchery and a bright idea

I made another Japanese Knot bag. Loved the fabric, so fun!

   This was suppose to be my bag but DD snatched it also. 😉 I’m going to make a purse for myself that she would think looks like an old woman. 😀

Then I had a bright idea regarding said new bag. So I had this picture in my head and it don’t look like this.  I don’t think I like the borders on each end. I think I will take those 2 rows off.

I’ve been working on the travel trailer stitchery. It is slowly coming along. The unbleached muslin is so boring. I think I will look for something more exciting.

More Hot Peppers

Finished the bag and I won’t be using that pattern again. The instructions left me going “uh?”   While I was sewing the lining I decided the hot pepper fabric would make a cute bib. I think I’ve decided on a quilt pattern for the baby and hopefully I can get started on that this afternoon.

Happy quilting!

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.

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.

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.
