Craft Show Goodies

Here are a few samples of things I made for the two craft shows I did this year.  I had a selection of adult as well as childrens aprons.  Pretty Pockets which are designed to hold a gift card. Mugs Rugs and purses.

This is a purse organizer and matching wallet. The organizer contains
a notepad and pen and 4 pockets to keep receipts, coupons, gift cards all organized.

These are my Pretty Pockets, made from a brown grocery bag. Each contains
a notebook and 2 blank note cards. The front has a pocket to slip in a gift card.
This one says..."If the shoe the matching purse"

A tote for a kindle fire

A cute mug rug....bigger than a coaster but smaller than a placemat.
A great place for your drink and a snack.

Sisters Sewing Soiree 2012

Two of my sisters from North Carolina came up for a visit this week, joining me, plus another sister and our mom.  All the sisters brought their sewing machines and projects to work on . My sister in Columbus hosted this year and had recently converted her basement to a sewing room.  We always have a great time. Most nights we sewed until at least midnight....and usually ending the evening with lots of laughs and a rousing game of Mexican train dominos.  Here are some of our projects.
Janies Spider Web Quilt top, that green border really made it "POP"

Diana's Flower Quilt, she colored the flowers with crayons and trimmed each with black rick rack

Here's the bag I finished when I got home. It still needed something...I decided a fabric rose was just the ticket.

The purse from hell is finished.  This started out to be a totally different bag. I had so many things so wrong, it almost ended up in the trash!

So sorry I didn't get a pic of Charlottes tablecloth.  It is a beautiful bird print she is making for moms table.  I will get a pic when she brings it to mom.

Thank you to my "sew sisters"  for such a great time, hugs to all!
