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

July Goals: A lovely year of finishes

With the crazy week last week, I totally missed the end of month goal checkin at the “A lovely year of finishes”.  I did get 3 projects finished; a coin purse, a pillow for a swap and the hexagon trivet.

I did not get the time to finish my two big projects. The two baby quilts. These will be my goals for July. I think both of these are doable (at least at a minimum the tops) since I am having 1.5 weeks vacation.

  1.  Wonky Star QuiltIMG_7783
  2. Hexagon Quilt

I have a whole slew of other projects, I want to do over the next few months. This is more for my own records (I am still getting the chalk board into my sewing room), just so I don’t forget…
