WiP Wednesday

I hope you guys got more done than I did this week. I don't have a lot to report.
WIP Wednesday at Freshly Pieced

As I said before, this week was birthday week. Mine was last Wednesdays, my daughter's was Saturday and hubby's is today. I got 8 pillowcases done by Saturday for her party.
I have also been working on a project bag. It's a bit big.

That bag you're looking at? Yeah, it has 3 lap quilts in it. I am probably going to use my leftovers to make a smaller version. I really wanted something to take projects to quilting guild in for show and tell, but I went ahead and added pockets inside.

I have a large pocket on one side for my cutting mat, some small pockets on the other side for notions, and a long pocket on the bottom of that side for my ruler. I may put a button with a loop for that to keep it closed. I am doing a tutorial on this one as soon as I get it stitched around that top and add the straps.

That's it? Yup. Unfortunately. But I have plans, lots of plans! Mwahahahahahaha! (cough, gasp, wheeze, breathe!) Um, sorry about that. Yeah, just come back and visit later!

I adore that Amy Butler fabric - I have some scraps that I'm hoarding for a someday project. You know how it goes....What a great idea to make a giant project bag for toting stuff back and forth to guild etc. Happy WIP Wednesday!

I have vowed to keep my machine out and sew every day....even if it's jut for 10 or 15 minutes. However, like today, I have sewed since I got up. I finished squares and now I'm cutting them and sewing rows. I have half the top done now.

Cille said...

The pillow case is very cute... As is your fabric choices in general :)
