A speedy apron

we went by Momen+ today (because C wanted to go to the brewing supply store around the block), and the Bean insisted that she needed this animal/airplane fabric. It’s from the same line as the scrap I used to make her bag last week, and she loves all the animals. C is gonna brew again […]

A sweet birthday present…

We’ve got some little girl birthdays coming up, so I decided to use some of my Anne Kelle lollipop and ice cream cone scraps (I think… It’s all a blur from market) with some random other scraps to work on this zippered bag idea again… Last time the zipper was too high, this time it’s […]

Beach School baby blanket

Here’s another item up for auction(made at retreat). The fabric is most of a Remix charm pack, (arranged so helpfully by Lori), bordered in Kona White, and again with backing supplied by the always wonderful Liberty. (It’s a Riley Blake dot print), bound in a pretty Kona aqua color… I quilted it in double diagonal […]

More bags…

twirly girl dress on a twirly girl

  The problem with making a twirly girl dress is that the girl wearing it is constantly in motion…   it’s remarkably difficult to photograph   but I suppose that’s what makes the dress itself a success…      

Lisa’s Lists

  My big sister is the most organized person I know. but she’s not technical. so when I saw this tute, I pinned it right away. I KNEW it was perfect for her. I embroidered her name, since I love alliteration. I added a pen in her favorite color (aqua). I used linen and scraps […]
