First is a set of identical Christmas minky blankets for my two youngest grand daughters that are just 2 months apart.
I had bought this Ann Kelle for Robert Kaufman minky print a long time ago at one of my visits to SAS fabrics. I had no clue what I would do with it, but it was cheap! It finally got put to good use :) I just paired it with this cute print from Hobby Lobby and two Christmas gifts are done.
The print is from Tula Pink's Birds & Bees collection. The top strip is from a fat quarter I've had forever that I thought I would never use. I tried Jeni Baker's tutorial from In Color Order. I really love the construction of this bag, so simple!
I wish I would have fussy cut the squirrels to center them better, but you know me, I hate to waste a scrap of fabric. I also used the laminate on the inside since peanuts can be kind of messy :)
So he's pouting from getting in so much trouble...
Do you remember my potholder tutorial? Well I finally finished the second one from that post. That was almost a year ago!
These are so sturdy and perfectly sized, I love them! They would make great Christmas gifts, if you need an idea, head on over and check out the tutorial.
My husband got me a Kindle HDX for our 19th anniversary. Of course I had to make a case. I also have lots of mini charms collected so I decided to use my Pedal Pushers by Lauren & Jessi Jung for Moda. The prints are so pretty. I got this mini charm pack from Green Fairy Quilts. I love when they have sales because they always have free shipping.
I guessed on measurements and was pleasantly surprised I got a perfect fit! My satisfaction was quickly squashed when I realized I forgot to put the magnetic snap in, ugh! The lining is a piece of one of my vintage fabrics.
I have no clue what that white circle is on top of my kindle, very odd...
Since it was just for me, I added some velcro and didn't get too mad at myself for forgetting the snap.
My table is now clutter free and no more small unfinished projects nagging in my mind. It felt good to be able to sew again and have these things finished, so I can get back to quilts when I'm able!
Thanks for stopping by!
