I've Been Sewing!!

I am so thrilled to be working in my new craft room. I can't tell you how fantastic it is to have everything organized and close at hand. I've already been sewing. Here are a few pillows I made:

This one is for my craft room.

Becky found a fabric she loved in my stash, so I made her a pillow using it:

I have to say that I love that fabric too. I bought it at Hancock Fabrics over a year ago, so I'm sure they don't have anymore now... it's one of those fabrics I should have bought 4 or 5 yards of!!

I finally jumped on the bunting bandwagon... or pennants, or whatever you want to call them. I have seen them all over blogland and wasn't going to make any, but then I decided that I needed some color over the window in my craft room, but didn't want to put curtains there. Here is what I came up with:


It adds a nice splash of color without blocking the window too much.

I also made a couple of mug rugs. I am new to quilting, so these did not turn out as good as I would have liked, but I will keep trying!




Finally, I came across a pattern for an easy toddler pillowcase dress using 2 fat quarters of fabric. It was so easy to make, and you can whip one up in no time at all. The pattern can be found here.



I plan on making more of these, as I have lots of fat quarters in my stash!

Okay, off to do more sewing... have a fabulous day!
