I made a pinwheel sampler quilt from this fabric back in the spring for my daughter's teacher and was so excited that there was enough to make a second quilt from it since it turned out so beautifully. Well I finally have gotten started on it and am just as pleased the second time around.
Using a tutorial found on Skip to my Lou, I have made several of these crochet heart banners.One for the house and three others to include in Valentine's gifts I will be giving out this year. They are super quick to make and loads of fun.
...making a couple more bags with the remnants of this fabric. Sarah was invited to attend a birthday party for a friend and so we decided to make another of the lunch bags to double as a gift bag and part of the birthday gift. There was just enough remaining of the fabric following this to make a cellphone purse that I took in to a coworker to give to her daughter.
After seeing the super cute lunch bags on Pinterest that Lori Holt of Bee in My Bonnet made using Ayumi's tutorial I just had to make one. I had promised one of my daughters a scripture bag and thought this would be perfect. Using some remnants from outfits I did for the girls a couple of weeks ago and some coordinating fabric leftover from another project this is what we have:
I added a pocket on the inside to hold a pencil/pen and her Faith in God booklet
I started the new year with the goal of completing a Christmas gift each month. So for this month I started this fillet crochet project from an old issue of Decorative Crochet. At this point I am just over a third of the way through the pattern.
My sewing Machine has been in the shop for the last three weeks getting serviced and a few repairs and boy did I have withdrawals. Nothing like not have your sewing machine on hand to let you know just how much you use it on a daily/weekly bases. I am so happy to have it back and already have a long list of projects I can't wait to tackle.
The first of these projects is this dress and skirt for the girls.
Followed by these "fancy trash bags" that I made for a couple of friends who enjoy sewing.
