It's bright baby!

I made this small quilt for my new great niece, Mallory. I love all the bright colors and fun prints.
The other day I suggested someone use a roller foot to quilt straight lines with verses the more expensive walking foot. It had been some time since I had used my roller foot so I thought I would make sure It really did work as nicely as I remembered. It turned out great, but I shall have to practice making a straight line without a guide.

Thrifty Jean-skirt

One pair of jeans form the thrift store, plus one skirt from same thrift store combine to form one fashionable skirt.

The embroidered pockets on these slightly worn jeans were perfect. And the bottom half of a skirt saved time and effort with the hem already finished.

A project bag for my crochet.

The fabric is preprinted and a scrap left over from making a quilt. It was sitting out on the table and I got the idea to make a bag from it. (Yes, my fabric talks to me. Doesn't everyone's?)

Progress is slow...

... But I am starting to see results with the biggest cross stitch project I have ever decided to stitch.

Tiny Totes

These are a little smaller than what I was thinking. But that is actually okay since the idea is to limit how much each of the kids can take along in the car. And they have the organizer to hold some things too.

If my sewing machine had a mind of its own it would be breathing a sigh of relief. And Asking itself "why did she want to use fusible craft weight interfacing with French seams?"

Getting ready for vacation.

I am making each of the kids a organizer for the van.

I am going to try and make them small matching tote bags then they will be able to limit what they bring in the car to what fits into there storage areas.
