Here's my version of the Tropical Frothy Quilt. I adore the fabric for the back. I didn't have enough, so I put in a strip of scraps from the front. Inside I put wool batting. I plan to hand-quilt the blue triangles on the border once winter comes (when it's cold outside and I can snuggle under the quilt as I'm quilting it!).
I changed the pattern a bit. 1. I ironed interfacing onto the non-denim fabric for extra stability. 2. I put a circle of denim onto each section (the denim and the non-denim sections). I simply opened the zipper of the jeans before sewing the circles onto the tubes. Then I pulled it all through the zipper. 3. I didn't make a circle of cardboard for the bottom. The double denim circles hold it nicely.
July 1 is Canada Day, so I decided to make a bag to carry around all day. Here it is! The front and pocket are dollar store flags, and the back is a bandana from the same dollar store. Cost about $6 and I can use it for years! (Only once a year!) It is, of course, in Jordy style.
Here's a handbag I made! The pattern is from "Bags With Style" by Stephanie Kimura, but it would be very easy to make on your own. The corners are flat (not Jordy-style), and it has iron-on interfacing, batting and lovely pink lining.
I made this a while ago when I was going through an Eiffel Tower phase. For some reason, I really like the architecture! The pillow is beaded, in case you can't tell from the photo. The pillow is about 7" by 10".

Here's a world pillow I beaded a while ago. I traced the outline of the world onto white fabric and then drew a few lines across as a guide. The world/globe is one of my favourite "symbols" if you can call it that.
Here are some of my latest creations. I didn't have a pattern - it was mostly trial and error. I downloaded old advertisements and quotations and then just used iron-on transfer paper to transfer the picture onto heavy-ish white cotton. Then I took a couple of hours to add beads and sequins. Finally, I sewed the blocks into a purse (complete with a zipper, padding, and lining). They're about the size of a CD.
I made this one for my sister, who's an optometrist. The fabric is plain white cotton - it just looks wonky in the photo:
and the back:
That's enough for now, though I've made many of them.
