I got a thing for Oilcloth

I've been wanting to buy oilcloth for a while. Joann's and Hobby Lobby are the only fabric stores around here. So that's why I went to the Internet. I found what I wanted at Mendels. I got a yard of the black and white and ordered a pack of scraps. I loved the scraps the best. First I made this billfold from this tutorial.


Then this clutch from this tutorial.


The inside of my billfold. I put a zipper on one of the pockets, then added velcro to the rest. It seemed to be less bulky.





Made this little bag for the little things that are at the bottom of my purse.

This is my little sewing kit for my bag. You'd think a seamstress would have always carried one. Not me, but I needed one a few weeks ago and had to buy one at the Dollar Tree.

Dress for a chair

I just love this adorable dress made for a chair. This would be so lovely in my little grandkids room. So I plan on making one. This one is at the The Rusty Rake where I have some purses. Sold 2 so far.

Amazing embroidery finds

Over the weekend I found some amazing buys at yard sales around our area. Beautiful embroidery scarfs. One is has holes, but I'll put it to good use. I also found a new pair of keds leather shoes for $2.00 and a raincoat for $2.00. I had been looking everywhere for the perfect raincoat. It had to be lightweight, have a hood and pockets.


This one is a tablecloth. It was tough to iron, so I won't be using it a lot.

My cute little roosters are from an antique store for $2.00

Diaper Bag and pockets

A diaper bag for Lori's friend. They picked out the fabrics. I used McCalls 4403 and twicked it a bit, by adding store bought straps and pockets to the front.

These cute little changing table pockets are from McCalls 4897. I also made an adorable cover for the car seat. I'll show off after I put it on the car seat.
