Ruby's 3 New Outfits

Ruby picked out 3 fabrics and patterns from my stash. Yesterday I made all 3. The first fabric I think came from Sally. The pattern is McCall's 5798.  It turned out beautiful but it took a long time to make. All those ruffles.

Then I made an easy one from Simplicity 2437.  I had bought this fabric to make something for myself, but she had always admired it.

This one I didn't use a pattern.  I had planned on making a purse, but it looks so cute on her.

2 New Burlap Bags

Made a couple more bags to sell. I'm really loving the burlap. This one is my favorite. I'm trying to use the whole image on the bag so sometimes they are pretty bag.

This one is even bigger.  I can see taking it to the flea market and filling it with lots of goodies.

Please check them out on etsy.

Sewing for People Ruby and Layla Love

My sweet grandkids come home after school and insisted I need to make purses for their teachers. (After all they are the 2 best teachers in the world according to them). They sat down and designed a bag and told me what the teachers liked.  Ruby's teacher loves birds and ruffles so this looked like it could be for her. Ruby's version had lots of ruffles on the straps.

This pattern is Butterick 4822.

Layla's teacher needed something simple for on the go. Layla's version had lots of lace at the bottom and a green button. This pattern is Noodlehead Envelope Clutch.

Ruby's friend Gracie wanted a book bag that had a puppy dog face. My own design.

They all had great reviews and everyone was happy.
