Recent Sewing

Haha! Lame title! I have a hard time with titles when I am posting about multiple items!
I have been working on several different items lately! I want to start on my favorite of all of them! This is the new Ruffle Pocket Tote. It is a spin off of the 4 Pocket tote that I make. The ruffle adds a bit more character and on the back there is a Pleated Pocket. I am still not sure if I love the pleated pocket on the back, but without it, I think it would be pretty plain.

I love this fabric too! The purple and black prints are from Hobby Lobby. I have heard some people aren't to crazy about their fabrics, but I really love them. I have never had any problems with the quality, and I love the prints and colors that they use. The aqua argyle is from Connecting Threads. It was around $2.60 a yard on clearance. I bought all the different colors in this print, plus a extra yard. I really love their site and catalog. All of their fabrics are made from 100% US cotton. It is a brushed cotton...Not to sure what that means, but It has a nice feel to it. Not to light, feels alot like Kona cottons.

I recently made this Dale Earnhardt Jr tote too! Same shape of bag, just with out all the frilly extras! We are a Nascar household. My husband and I both cheer for Jr when we have a chance to watch! I really love how the checekered flag print makes this purse pop!

Next on the list is a Reversible Slip Dress. This one is made out of the Tutti Fruitti fabrics from Joanns. The strawberry shortcake fabric is the same feel as the TF but not sure where it came from! This dress has a super light summer feel to it, even with the 2 layers. This was made using the Popover dress pattern from Oliver + S, but made reversible!

Then there is this cute little rag quilt! I had made it for the shop, but when I found out my cousin had just had a baby, it went to them! Of course I also decided to make a cute little Tag blanket to go along with it! The fabric is from Joanns. It was a set of flannel recieving blankets. The backing was snuggle flannel that was on sale!

I think that just about covers my sewing as of late! I am linking up to Amy Lou Who's Sew and Tell! I really love this linky party! Only every so ofter, so those who follow always check back to see when it is! Not to big...not to little! It is the perfect linky!

I am also linking up to SEW MODERN MONDAYS! This is the first time linking up. I love checking out all the creations there on Mondays!
