I am not sure if some of you were reading or remember but when I first started blogging I had mentioned the kids and I always had Friday night sew-in. Last night was almost like that, but Gordon decided not to join us (I guess for a 10 year old boy Xbox with friends is more important). The girls and I got a little creative and came up with a cute little bag. Nothing fancy, no pockets, no bells, no whistles, just something to throw everything into.
I had gone to the thrift shop yesterday and found some heavy weight fabric that was too cute to pass up, so we used that and a little wool for the applique and some of my stash. Natalie and I designed the bag and Alice picked out the colors and cut the flower and leaves.
I mentioned my trip to the thrift store and here are some other items I found. This cool iron. The chicken/rooster thing moves so you can open it.
This cool fabric, I believe it is supposed to be a table cloth, but I probably wont use it as that.
Some wood projects for the kids to paint.
This little bitty chicken to go with my bigger one I have like it, two pictures and a cool old Hershey’s kiss can.
And all these goodies! You can see they are sitting on the purse fabric.
I have been getting some great guesses on the fat quarters. Funny thing is I showed the picture to my husband and asked him to guess. I have to tell you I thought he cheated because he was only one off. He amazes me!
Keep the guesses coming and have a wonderful weekend! Don’t forget to find a little stitching time!
