Friday Night Sew In Results

I had a very productive Friday night. I cleaned my studio before I could get in there and sew. It's so much nicer to work in a tidy area and things can get out of control quickly when I'm sewing.

After I cleaned, I made a little zippered wallet from scraps of the purse I made last week. It is really cute and I love having a little wallet to match my purse.
Then I started making my daughter a Twirly Skirt. I got it all cut out and made the ties. I'm not quite finished but more than half way there.

I hope your Friday night was a as good as mine.
Take care,

Made Me a New Purse

I have been needing a new purse for a while and woke up in the mood to do something about it today. I found this Ralph Loren Home fabric in the remnant bin at Joann's about a week ago. They were having a great sale and all remnants were 75% off which made this fabric $2.81. I really like it and when I saw it I thought it would make a great spring purse. I almost never make anything for myself so this was a real treat. I found the pattern at Artsy Craftsy Babe's blog. It's called the Phoebe bag and it was super easy. She has lots of patterns on her site. This one was free for personal use and she has others for sale. I highly recommend you check it out. Here is the pattern.

I have more of this fabric left so I am going to make a make up bag and probably a change purse as well.

I hope you are having a good day and getting to do something that you love.

A Wonderful Get Well Gift

I have been sick with a really bad cold or the flu, I'm not really sure which. Regardless of what you call it, I have been one sick girl. I've been stuck in bed which drives me crazy. I've spent a lot of time looking at sewing blogs which is nice but I really wanted to "do" something. You know I'm sick when I'm too sick to be at my sewing machine.

Well today, I received a wonderful gift from an old friend. I received an email with gift cerfticate from Embroidery Library. I have ordered from them for years and I spoke of them often on my other blog. I just finished shopping and I got 23 designs for $25! Two of them were there free designs that they have every month and because I got more than 12 individual designs, I got a 33% discount on the entire order. I just love what I picked out. I got some things to make for my kids for Valentine's Day and I got two to decorate my studio. I got two lady bugs to use in a quilt for a special little girl in my life and I got some quilt designs that I plan to use for quilting. This gift beats flowers anytime. I am SEW happy.

I gotta get back to resting. 

Have a great day!
