quilt for thomas

what little person couldn't love a brightly colored quilt made by auntie.

t-shirt quilt

my first ever t-shirt quilt!  made this for a friend of a friend, really like how it turned out.

miniature bags for some cute gals on the block

cross-body messenger bags to be used as dolly diaper bags by a couple of BFF's on my street.  sew cute!

MIL christmas gift

because i just didn't have enough to do right before christmas, i decided to make a travel bag for my mother-in-law.  she is quite the sewer herself, so i was a bit apprehensive about taking this on.  

her is the inside, not a great picture, but it is complete with one zipper pocket and one utility pocket

here is my model showing off the bag :) the zipper goes from one side to the other.

newest obsession in sewing: purses and bags of any kind {camera or other}

quilting, well yes, i love quilting; making square things is what i do.  that is until my MIL visited for my darling's big 0-4 birthday this summer.  and that is when it happened, bag infatuation.  or, more accurately, handmade bag obsession; in all actuality my collection of bags numbers somewhere in the realm of 5 million-billion.

without further ado, my stitched up camera bags.

quilted version to be used as a purse

this one is actually a school bag; large enough for books and laptop

how could i just do one?!

my good friend, carrie (my GREAT friend, actually) recently increased her family to 4 via the birth of her son, avery;  her first, daughter harlee, came along almost five years ago; three years before i ever stitched a stitch (okay, not really, but 3 years before i ever attempted a quilt).  imagine the conundrum i find myself in: how can i make a quilt for her newest arrival without ever making one for her sweetest girl?  so i didn't.  i made them each a comfy quilt that i hope they love.  take a look.
