I made a fully reversible grocery tote with boxed corners, an interior pocket and a coordinating zipper pouch - great for carrying your cash at the farmers market! I made the handles kinda hefty to accommodate lots of stuff without getting uncomfortable to hold. The print is a home dec weight cotton and the solid green is an IKEA sheet. The zipper pouch can be easily attached to the bag handle with a removable strap. The pouch is also fully lined and padded with fusible fleece so it can protect a small camera and/or phone as well as carry cash and cards.
For Christmas giving, this was filled with jars of homemade goodies and presented to a neighbor.
Made these little snappy pockets to take a break from zippers. One holds my hexie templates and has a divider. The other holds our library cards and is great to throw in a book tote before heading out to the library for storytime.
Made this from the tutorial over on Pink Penguin except I used patchwork instead of a plain fabric panel for the body of the bag. The lining and drawstring cover are made from a vintage pillowcase. Currently using this as my purse but made another for a friend to keep her knitting in. LOVE this bag!
Just finished this bag yesterday morning and I'm kind of in love with it. It's the first bag I've ever made and it's huge enough to carry around all my momma stuff (snacks, water bottles, first aid kit, camera) plus my regular stuff (wallet, cell phone, planning calendar). The print fabric and orange lining are from IKEA. The linen was from my fabric stash. It was also the first time I made my own fabric covered button. Completely fun project and I'm sure I'll make another one!
Finally finished this twin size I Spy quilt for my little fella who turned four yesterday. There are something like 120 different fabrics used and each block has a "match" so that in addition to "spying" a certain thing the kiddos can also look for the matching block. Blocks are 4 inches square with a 4 inch border in red kona cotton. I used the invisible nylon thread for quilting and black thread in free motion swirls on the border (which you can't even see in the photo). It was fun to put together and I had enough of the various novelty fabrics left to make another smaller version for my daughter - who won't be getting it until Christmas.
