Happy Easter everyone! Hope you all have a wonderful time with family and friends. Appreciate what you have. Never know what tomorrow will bring. There are plenty of people out there less fortunate.

Yellow Blue Denim Purse

New bag I made tonight. The base is denim I have been looking forward to using. I had been collecting various fabrics in yellow/blue patterns and they seemed perfect for the denim.

Here is a view of the finished product with one of the straps showing.

Here is the other strap I made.

Here is a close up of both straps together.

Here is the lining with my label and if you look closely you can see the inner pocket I made as well.

The appliques I made, I had sewn on whim and they should actually fray a little on the edges to give it a little more zing.

Overall, I like the way it came out though I tend to add and create on the spur of the moment.

Looking forward to my next project. I am pretty into making the purses though. Purses are one of my weaknesses. lol

Reversible Rag Blanket

I should SO be sleeping, but I couldn't wait to see it and post photos. :)

The Embroidery came out lovely...


For the past week I have been sick. Today, I finally had to get involved in another project! Aside from making my hubby Chicken Curry in the slow cooker and baked him the cookies I have been promising him for over a week, I started on a baby blanket I have been tossing around in my head.

I have it in the dryer right now, so it should be ready for photos shortly! I cant wait to see how it came out.

I will post details and photos either in a little while or in the morning. SO much to do the next two days for my daughters birthday party on Sunday. Hectic!

Handmade from the heart. Cant go wrong! :)

Spring Quilt Tote Bag

This project, I wanted something a bit bigger (made it 11.5" x 14") and slightly different. I love the quilted look so I wanted to try that. This is my first try. I need a few improvements, but overall, I like how it came out. :)

Easter Patchwork Bag #2

Made another bag today....with a few adjustments. One of the adjustments I made was making the handle a bit shorter than the first one. The first one I made for over the shoulder, this one I made as a handbag and I think the straps suit the size of the bag much better.

Easter/Spring Patchwork Bag

Today, I finally got the fabric I have been so anxious for. I had this project in mind and couldn't wait to start it. I started this afternoon and this was the outcome. I am so pleased with it! AND it was my first attempt! Love it, love it, love it!

New and Exciting

Last week I received some new fabric I am pretty excited about. Expecting some more this week as well.

I have several new projects lined up. I have an order for a customized draft guard, which will be really cute! I am just waiting on the measurements. I will definitely be posting photos!

I also have lined up an Easter purse for my daughter which I will be using instead of an Easter basket. Filling it with the fake grass and some goodies. Really looking forward to that. I have some nice fabrics chosen for that one.

I am also looking into eyelet setters, which I have never used before. There is a bag/backpack I am planning on making. It's a patchwork design and really cute! I am pretty excited about the projects I have lined up.

I will keep my blog updated with info and photos, so be sure to check back often. Any suggestions for projects are always welcome! :)
