Hipster Bags

I made a hipster bag back in May and my granddaughter and her friend decided that they wanted to make one, so we got some fabric and these two cute girls went to work.  We ended up doing part of them one day and finishing them the next week!  Here is what their Hipster Bags looked like:hipster bags

Cherry Table Quilt

I have a fun little table quilt that I have been working on for the last year!  One of my girlfriend’s gave me the pattern and we have both been working on them together, it is so fun to have a friend that likes to do what you do!  I guess that is why we are best friends! :)

Little Girl’s Dresses

Do you have any projects that you have had all the supplies for a long time before you got around to making it?  Well these dresses are one of those projects.  I had the pattern for a few months before I bought the fabric and then I had the fabric for several months before I got around to making them.  But I think the wait was well worth it!

Blanket Purse

I received this for a Christmas present from a dear friend and I loved it so much that I decided that I had better make a couple of them to have on hand for gifts.  (I might even save them for next Christmas!)


It is a blanket that is rolled up and has a pouch with a handle attached to it with velcro!  How cute is this?  My friend filled the pocket full of goodies and said just to keep it in the car!  I can think of a dozen different places that I could use this! Continue reading


Star Quilts

I am back from my Christmas break!  I hope that everyone had a great holiday and that you got to do something you loved or be with someone you love!

I mentioned that I was making quilts for Christmas, well we ended up making 5 of them!  I bought a kit last summer and it had the pattern and everything in it for a complete quilt.  It was such an easy pattern that I was able to put the top together in an evening!  There was actually enough fabric in that kit to do the star and the border for a second quilt!  So that is what got me on a roll!   My husband was out of town for about a week and during that week I was able to put 4 of these quilts together and my daughter did the 5th one for her husband for Christmas!

Floral Quilt

I have another quilt post today! :)

Here is the quilt that my daughter made for her daughter.  She sewed this quilt top several months ago and we just needed to add the outside borders to make it a little bigger, then I quilted it for her and sewed on the binding, because she said the binding would take her another month to do!  She exaggerates!
