Time for More Zippered Pouches!

Sometimes I get a request for a 'simple zip pouch' that will showcase a fabric, and when that happens I refer back to my own quick tutorial.  I really need to update it with more pictures, but it is a pretty fast sew!

WIP Wednesday - Turns Out that Sleep Is AMAZING!

My embroidered peeker challenge is coming along, I'm already 6 towels in, so I might actually get caught up this weekend!  They are going pretty smooth and I'm using up my stash!  Of course that means I can add new things to it right? Like this adorable Stitch fabric?  I think I need a hoodie for me, and maybe a cool purse since I've been using my SuperWhoLock one for almost a year now!  Time for a change!
I have this in giant adult sized and kid sized...perfect for both clothes and purses!
I don't think I got enough of this fabric, it's too awesome!

Starlet Captivating Clutch - Bright and Bold Style!

The second fabric set I received for the Ambassador projects was from the Baxter Mill Archives.  This one was printed onto a polyester base, so it was a little more slippery to work with.  I was a little concerned since the colors were so bright and vibrant and decided to pre-wash, but there was NO bleeding or fading, even after drying on high (didn't realize at first that it was polyester!  Oops!)
Orange and hot pink - Very dashing!

WIP Wednesday - No Time For Procrastination!

There may be no time for it, but I still manage to do it!  Last night's procrastination was actually cleaning and organizing, so I can finally see the top of my cutting table again!  In the process of cleaning I also ran across several more half finished projects...so now I have a Next In Line (NIL) pile...
Probably the last time I'll see the top of my table until mid February...

Southwest Clematis - Swap Time!

I love joining sewing swaps, it gives me a deadline I have to rush to meet (I'm a slight procrastinator, in case you hadn't noticed), panic over picking the 'right' fabric, relief when I send it off, and then joy when I get my gift!  Being a glutton for punishment, I always seem to pick the swap going on right when I'm neck deep in orders...but that just adds to the excitement!

Fast and Easy - Brownie Wallet from XOXO by Lauren

One of the new designers that I'm following is XOXO by Lauren.  The first pattern I did of hers was the Boon Wallet, and when she asked for testers for another quick pattern, I jumped at the chance!  This wallet took about 1 episode of Super Girl (would have been less, but I hadn't seen the episode yet and kept getting distracted).  I made mine with some wine colored cork and it probably took me longer to pick my materials than to actually make it!
