Noodlehead clutch

 I'm off to the Endodontist this morning for a recheck on my root canal.  I had promised the assistant I would make her a little clutch. She likes little pink flowers so I used this adorable sheet and used Noodlehead's pattern again.

That was 3 weeks ago.  Guess what? Last night I started on it. I have a fractured wrist so I'll blame it on that. Although I've pretty much done what I wanted with this bum wrist. I go tomorrow for another xray.  Hope I can get this cast off.

Vintage Sheet Curtains

Just finished these curtains for my sewing room.  From a vintage sheet.  I had already made an ironing board cover. I think I'll use the rest to refinish my chairs. Just got tired of looking at ugly white blinds. What a nice change.

Diaper Bag for Ezra

This diaper bag is for my friend Jessica and her baby Ezra.  I know she loves owls (like me).  The owl is the same pattern as my apron my Mom made here.  I enlarged it to 125%.  The bag pattern is one of my favorites for diaper bags . I used it here when Jessica had her baby girl.  Inside is a thrifted sheet which I just love. Outside is Amy Butler Passion Lilly.  I've had it for a year and just now using it. I didn't get to go to her shower yesterday.  Hope she likes it.

Antiques Collectables

 I love collecting little porcelain objects.  Some of these I got at Goodwill for a dollar and some at antique stores for under $4.00 (that's my limit). The case came from Hobby Lobby. I loved it because it has that antique feel. I display it proudly in my dining room.

Bible Cover

 Tonight I decided I needed a cover for my Bible. It was really easy to make. I'm so happy with it. I'm making one for my husband as soon as I get some camouflage fabric. I will try really hard to do a tutorial.

Baby Shower Gifts

I made this cute little monkey quilt for my new cousin to be, Logan Peach. My cousin Jenny loved it.  The pattern is from Quilts for Babies  by Lark Crafts.  Also made her 2 little bibs.

Here's my cousin Jenny with another beautiful quilt someone made for her. She got lots of nice things, especially homemade goodies.

More New Summer Clothes

 The dress at the top is a favorite pattern of mine Simplicity 2660. This was my Easter dress. Fabric from Joann's.
This skirt is made from a vintage tablecloth. I used Icandyhandmade's ideas on her blog. Wish I had someone to take pictures of the back. I love the way it turned out.
