Sunshine Wristlet for Bag It 2017

Here are two more Bag It entries: one zippered Sunshine Wristlet (minus the hand strap), and one folding wallet. Sunshine finished a bit small at 7 1/4" X 5 1/4" because of accidentally printing the pattern too small. There is an inside slip pocket. The wallet finished nearly the same size (folded), and I just winged it. The wallet has an inside slip pocket and a hook and loop fastener. These are both sewn of the same Allegory Story fabric as their matching purse (that post is listed under "purses & totes" in the Labels link below). These are entries 11 and 12 for me. Although not in the Bag It challenge, there was also enough fabric to make a matching key fob. See it to the right in the photo? There is still time to enter Bag It 2017.

Notebook Covers for Bag It 2017

Hello again friends. 'Been busy sewing gifts for the holidays and birthdays. Pictured above are three: Notebook Covers from a pattern by Elm Street Quilts Blog. Each measures 3 1/2" X 6 1/2". Guess what is inside each- a 2018-2019 calendar. Yes, most people now just use smartphones instead of paper calendars, but they can still come in handy, lol. These are my 8th, 9th, and 10th entries in the Bag It event. Be sure to visit the link party to see many beautiful bags. Prim blessings.

Baby girl bubble suit

Good morning. Here is a darling little bubble suit that I made for my niece and her husband's new baby girl. It is Simplicity 8098 A, and there are also versions for a baby boy. The pattern is quite simple to construct, with a mock shirt and a three-button back closing (I used snaps instead). There are also snaps in the crotch for easy diaper changing. To see the matching accessories, follow the link below my signature. This pattern will get a pattern difficulty rating of:

Splash of Color QAL: finished quilt top

Good morning friends. Here is my finished quilt top for the Splash of Color QAL at Busy Hands Quilts. The block pattern was a bit difficult for me (kinda like a Drunkard's Path), but got it all sewn finally. The quilt pattern is Mythical Lanterns by Jen Carlton Bailly (it is available for download at http://www.robertkaufman.com/quilting/quilts_patterns/mythical_lanterns/). I chose a neutral grey and white background for the vividly colored lanterns. Looking forward to getting it all quilted and binded. Be sure to visit the link party to see many more quilt tops.
