A New Purse

I created a new purse! I like it, it's big and roomy, and could hold anything. I'm not sure how I feel about the wing look at the bottom though.

I used Denyse Schmidt's Katie Jump rope, and coordinated it with a pin dot from the recess line.

Garden Party Quilt

This quilt has taken forever to make. well not forever... I finished the top last fall, but the binding was just put on last week.

Anyways I love it. it's bright and cheerful. The whole thing is made using Garden Party by Anna Maria Horner. One of my favorite fabric lines out there.

The binding and the backing is just that solid yellow. very simple and boring for such a bright quilt.

The pattern came from here.

My Own Thing

I've been dreaming about making a wallet for a while know, but just recently had the guts to do one. So after ALOT of trial and error i've finally come up with this.

It has a change pouch, 2 money pockets, and 6 card pouches. I'm really happy with it but I still need practice with the bias tape (you can tell by looking at the bottom middle of the change pocket).

After realizing that I could do this, I decided that it couldn't be any harder to make my own purse as well. I was right, and this only took one try.

This next picture is just to give an idea of the shape.

Kara's Baby Quilt

Here's the quilt that I made for Kara . I think she is as in love with anything animal as I am, so I figured an animal quilt would fit the theme perfectly.

I used ikea baby sheeting for this cute little baby quilt. You can see the original fabric on the back. Isn't it adorable?

Here are some close ups of the blocks.

As sad as it was to say goodbye this one, I figured that the soon to be little guy might enjoy it more than I would.

Another quilt

Since i'm still a little sickish (actually just too lazy to do anything else) I decided to make a baby quilt.

I made the log cabin blocks and stuck to the same color for each one. I like it, but I like most things I make... (full of it? yes)

I was inspired by this quilt, but decided to add in a little bit of orange.
