Slim Clutch

This clutch reminds me of an envelope.  It is slim and would be great for coupons or just a cell phone and keys.  I made the interior out of a bright yellow fabric and sewed a couple of pockets.  It has a magnet closure.  I would like to show some tutorials of my projects, but when I finally get time to sew, I’m going as quick as I can.  I should take the time to document my steps!

Baby Quilt

I made this plush quilt for my cousin and I loved the fabric.  I used chocolate colored minky fabric for the back and did a simple top of strips of cotton sewn together for a striped effect.  I think any more baby blankets I make I will be using minky for the back.  My little one loves to cuddle with his blanket!

Ruffle Clutch

I made this ruffled clutch a few months ago, but I still haven’t  completely finished it yet.  We just moved and I don’t have my sewing machine and all of my supplies unpacked and organized yet.  I am looking forward to reorganizing everything.  I think that I need to finish all of my projects that are started before starting anything else.  I have really been in the mood to sew, so hopefully I will get it done soon!

Scarf of ties

I found a seller on etsy that had silk necktie scraps and couldn’t resist!  Along with making my little man a tie to wear, I wanted to make something for my hubby.  This scarf was a Christmas present.  I don’t know if he will ever wear it.  It is a little flashy for his taste, but maybe I’ll have to give it a try.

More Pillows

These are just a few more pillows that I have made recently.  My sewing streak has came to an end.  Life.  Busy.  Missing it.  I can’t wait until my next sewing spree and will be planning everything I have to make.  Yes, have to make.  Some things are like that for me, I can’t pass it by!  As you can tell from the pic, I’m really into ruffles right now.  Good thing they are in style!  Hopefully they won’t be out for awhile!

Felt Poinsettia

I made this felt poinsettia to wear over Christmas.  I like working with felt and it is a versatile medium.  I made five flower shapes, keeping the sizes just a little bigger from the previous and two leaves.  I attached them altogether in the center then hand sewed the silver beads.  I didn’t have time to actually sew on a pin on the back so I used a large safety pin.  It was my pop of color to my black dress for the holidays!

I finally followed a pattern!  Let me say that if I had not been sewing for a couple of years now and sewed handbags, I don’t think I could of figured out the pattern on my own.  So, I need to follow another pattern and keep trying!  I have never sewn a clutch or handbag in this shape before and I really like it.  I used a cloth napkin and a placemat for the fabric!  I also want to enlarge the pattern for a over sized clutch.

Snuggle blanket

Super easy and super fun blanket for kiddos!  What it takes: half a yard of fun fabric for the front.  I used cotton, but flannel is another great option.  Second, half a yard of minky fabric, or flannel.  I love how plush minky fabric is for little ones.  All that has to be done is sew right sides together, leaving a 4 inch gap to turn right sides out.  Hand sew gap closed.  You can be done at this step if you want or you can machine stitch around the sides.  Easy!  I love seeing my little one rub his blanket to his face!  He loves his blanket!

Hanging Mail Organizer

I really need to start making patterns of what I make so when I want to make it again I know where to start!  I make this mistake all of the time.  I should at least write down the dimensions for cutting the fabric out!  I’m super happy with the way this organizer turned out and now want to make more!  It has a large pocket for magazines and two smaller pockets for mail or keys or a phone.  It hangs right on the door handle!

Hanging Photo Blocks

After finding some cool blocks on etsy, I decided to order them and put photos on for some artwork.  It was great because they came with holes in the back already to hang.  I cut and glued the photos on and then started putting thin layers of diamond glaze.  I have never used diamond glaze before and was having issues with bubbles.  I tried popping them and using a blow dryer on low and nothing seemed to work.  Finally I stated layering on regular mod podge and it helped!  Still a few bubbles, but not bad.  I gave these to my husband for Christmas and made a set for my brother.  Hopefully I am able to use my huge bottle of diamond glaze on some other project in the future.
