Sew Happy Mini Quilt

I just finished another small project. I plan to hang this in the sewing area in our snowbird place on FL this winter.

This is a free pattern from Julie Cefalu at The Crafty Quilter. Here is the link to the project. So cute.

I was surprised to find that I had all of the appropriate colors of embroidery floss in my stash.

This was a fun small project. I look forward to hanging it in my snowbird sewing space.

Thanks for stopping by.

WIP Project Bags

I whipped up two cute WIP (Works in Progress) bags this week. The free pattern is from Kimberly Jolly at the Fat Quarter Shop. Here is the link to her tutorial for the project.

All of the materials are available at FQS, but I used what was available to me locally. Kimberly recommends zippers and vinyl By Annie. I bought my vinyl from the roll available at Hobby Lobby. It seems to be fine to me. I had one By Annie zipper on hand, so I used that on the turquoise bag. I used a Talon zipper on the pink bag. The Annie zipper is superior by far. It has a wider tape on the zipper that allowed for a second line of top stitching. The Talon tape is much narrower. It was more difficult for my second line of top stitching to stay on the tape. I can't compare the vinyl products, because I only have what I bought at Hobby Lobby.

I don't know why these pics are sideways. Sorry. Both of my bags have projects already. I see more of these bags in my future.

Thanks for stopping by.
