I finished this cute little girl on Tuesday. I don't want to wait to blog it, as I'm hoping to get all my finishes done this quarter, so here she is:
I used some fussy cut scraps of "The Simple Life" and then I used some layer cake squares for the lining pieces. I'm loving how it turned out.
I also cut my binding strips at 2.5" this time, rather than 2.25. Made things a bit easier to work with.
Headed to a special friend's house soon! Checking it off the 3QFAL list!
Oh, and the winner of the Swoon Sewing patterns giveaway is (drumroll please!) . . . Renea, who said:
I really like the Dorothy Day Tripper bag and the Stella Weekender bag. But I also like the wallet pattern. LOL Can you tell I love all the Swoon Patterns? Thanks for the chance to win one of the patterns. (I sure hope Alicia will do the picking as I can't make up my mind on which pattern I really like because I like them all!)
Congratulations, but I think you're going to have pick your own! I'll be in touch so you can get your prize!
Oh, hey, I discovered this piggy bank challenge. You might want to give it a try too.
Here's my piggy bank:
Just a mason jar with a slit cut out in the lid, but still. It's what I'm going to use. Just have to keep it hidden from the kids. They'll raid it! If I put it by the cleaning supplies, they'll never find it . . . And when the year is up, I'm going to buy fabric. Lots (or maybe not lots) of beautiful fabric! Or maybe go on a retreat again. Or both. We'll just have to see, won't we?
