I’ve been sketching and planning this thing out for MONTHS! If you follow me on Instagram, then you’ve been watching as I plod along. Well, it’s finally DONE!!!
The front of the bag has a large (unlined) leather pocket:
The back has a zippered pocket, perfect for my phone! The side pockets will be for sippy cups and water bottles…
Are you on the lookout for quick holiday gifts? I’m bringing home a post originally shared over at Peekaboo Pages. Get your tea towels and scraps and get ready for some crafting!
You can use just about any image you can think up – or use text! I’ve provided a free template that you can download on Craftsy for the tea cups and teapot. Check that out here.
This fall I dressed E in the Knight Hoodie that I made last year, and he was OBSESSED with it!!! So much that I decided he needed another one! I had this scuba knit that I found in the bargain bin at Fabricland for $2 a meter. It’s the perfect weight for a layering piece, and it has a bit of sheen and texture that made it feel right for armor You can find the pattern for the Knight Hoodie here.
I whipped up a new Geranium Dress for kiddo to wear to church. She is growing so fast, I’m not able to keep up! This is a super quick sew, and the results are always fantastic. I sewed up a straight size 4 and added some extra length (I’d like this to last a few months anyways!).
So this kid is super excited to be promoted to big brother. He thinks we should name the baby after him. Typical 2 year old logic :)
I wanted to make a quilt that was neutral (even though I’m having a boy) and that would match my house kind of. I almost went with a fun pirate themed quilt, but in the end, this modern palette won out.
I’ve made quilts before, but never kept them (and that’s OK!). They’re so much fun to make for someone else, since you know it’s something people really seem to cherish. Here are a few oldies (clearly my photography has improved in the last few years!
I used paper-piecing for this one (a first for me!) and love how it turned out!
I don’t even remember how old I was when my mom taught me to sew on a machine. Four? Maybe five? I do remember the first project being this little 9-patch quilt for my dolly. We did yarn ties instead of quilting. I’ll have to see if I can find a picture of it somewhere! That was the beginning of a hobby I would grow to love! Since then, I’ve made clothes (some for myself – still working on that!), quilts, doll clothes – all sorts of things! Because when you have a creative outlet, the sky is the limit!
