New Pouch + Meal Plan {09.09.2013}


I was so lucky in our pouch swap….look at my new pouch, with the fabulous Melody Miller Typewriter fabric !! I love the grey corduroy on the bottom as well. My partner made this large pouch from the  Noodlehead open wide zipper pouch tutorial. Great, isn’t it? I am a very happy camper 🙂

Look at that cute pocket in the inside 🙂Pouch_Swap_Typewriter_inside

I already know that this week, my schedule is going to be kind of chaotic at work…for instance between 1-5pm today I had 8 meetings…totally crazy. So, this week I want to keep our meal plan simple.

Saturday Fresh Bread (from La Farm local french bakery) Fish Burgers
Sunday Toast + Banana+ Peanut Butter Spaghetti (GF) Bolognese
Monday Fresh Orange Lightening Muffins Fruit Salad
Tuesday Berry Spirulina Smoothie Vegetable Frittata
Wednesday Oatmeal + Banana + Walnuts Chicken Stir Fry + Brown Rice
Thursday Berry + Spirulina Smoothie Spinach + Pasta Salad
Friday Oatmeal + Dried Fruit Black Bean Vegetable Burgers + Homemade Fries

I hope to get a few hours of sewing in when I get home at night this week. I would like to finish 1 chair bag (which is an order), and a paper piecing block (which I am testing).


Finish it up Friday {26.07.2013} + Back to School Give aways


Today, I am so excited to be hosting a give away for an independent fabric designer, Natasha K. @ Jumping Birds. I met Natasha after using her fabulous whale fabric for a chair bag order. I loved that fabric, so when she reached out and asked if I would join with her on a Back to School give away using her new line “School Days”, of course I jumped at the opportunity.

I went straight over to Spoonflower and checked the line out, decided it was perfect for the Triple Zipper pouches that I wanted to make my son’s Kindergarten teachers to say thank you. I purchased 5 half yards. This week I went to work, matching the fabrics, choosing the zippers and started on those pouches. I love how they turned out – I am sure the teachers will too (even though they are a little late :-))

The first one:

  • Main Pocket and backing fabric:  Inspirational Pencils
  • Small Pocket 1 fabric: Polka Apples,
  • Small Pocket 2 fabric: Diag. Stripes
  • Lining fabric: ABC’s



The Second Pouch:

  • Main Pocket and backing fabric:  School Buses (not included in the giveaway but is available on Spoonflower.com)
  • Small Pocket 1 fabric: Polka Apples,
  • Small Pocket 2 fabric: Inspirational Pencils
  • Lining fabric: Diag. Stripes, and Polka Apples
