New Spoonflower fabric for Sunday stash

I couldn’t resist to pick up some new fabric from Spoonflower, after they were showing what they were using for their Project Linus blocks. I loved it. Of course, while I was in there, why not pick up some extra prints ;-).

Small Finish for Friday {09.27.2013}

It has been pretty busy at work, while I prepare for my vacation next week, so I did not get much sewing in. I did manage to finish these extra large chair bags. It is an order for a couple of older boys for organizing their home school equipment. These chair bags can fit dining room chairs and great fro extra storage

My favorite part of the chairs bags is the cool bug experiment fabric. It is designed by Tamara Serrao and available at spoonflower.com. What great halloween fabric too!!ChairBag_ScienceExperiment

Weekend Finishes {12.08.2013}

Have you ever had one of those weekends when you have these lofty plans and ideas of what you will get finished….and you just never quite get there? Yes, that was my weekend.

I had lofty plans to complete:

  • A couple of blocks (2 paper pieced blocks)
  • 6 chair bags
  • Finish 1 kiwi pillow
  • Start 2 pillows/ cushions
  • Attend a sew-in for my MQG monthly meeting

What did I get done (besides the washing and grocery shopping)??

Finished the Little Scrappy Kiwi Pillow 
See this post on materials used, the paper piecing design is by Juliet @ Tartan Kiwi.

Ok, can someone chime in – how do you photograph neon colors? Yes, that Orange corduroy is neon orange. The photos were taken in natural light – I tried playing around with them a bit but this is the best I could get the corduroy to look. Maybe, this is what I will master for Beth @ Plum and June’s Quilt Photography Workshop challenge this month.

The chair bags/ chair pockets are now available on my Etsy store.

So that was it…a long way from my plan but not too bad, at least I had some finishes. Right?

Actually, thinking about it now, my whole last week was like that, never seeming to keep up with the plan. The best thing about last week though, is I caught up on posting all the items I needed to on Thursday. Those folks expecting things from me, should be receiving them this week (unless you are international).

I will be linking up with Janice @ Better off thread for Sew Cute Tuesday.

Flower Garden Chair Bags, Finished!!

I am always in need of storage, especially in my son’s playroom. My mum used to make us chair bags to take to school each year and I loved them. So, one of my first sewing projects was a set of chair bags for my son. We use them to help store his stencils and coloring books. They are working out great.

I now make a lot of them for other people, mostly friends as gifts. Here is my new one, I love the flower print that I got of spoonflower.com. I hope the little girl likes it.
