Who doesn’t love a giveaway?

15 Sep

I know that I love one. Hop on over to Moda Bake Shop for the “Love it, Pin it, Win it contest” just by Pinning your favorite “recipes” from their blog and be entered to win Moda pre cut fabric. There are so many wonderful free tutorials for all kinds of projects.

Here are a couple that I have pinned and can’t wait to make.

I plan on making this quilt for my daughter using Moda fabric in the Vintage Modern collection by Bonnie and Camille. I love this line. The colors are so fresh and sweet. This will be the first big purchase I make once I sell something in my etsy shop. I want the whole collection….did I say how much I love it?

I also want to make this:

Isn’t this one of the cutest pincushions you’ve ever seen? I love it and can’t wait to make this too. You can NEVER have too many pincushions I say.

 

Putting my sewing machine to work

22 Aug

Well the kids started school again and this year our youngest started kindergarten. I’m sad because there are no more babies in this house. Well I’ve been trying to keep myself busy while they are all away filling there heads with knowledge. I can only stand cleaning this house once a week and with the other days I am filling my time at the sewing machine. Travis will be leaving again soon and while he is gone and the kids are at school I will be sewing and crafting my little heart out and posting new things in my etsy store. It’s been 3 years since I last put anything up in there but I am ready to open again. Now with me not working out of the home I can focus on putting lovely handmade things up for sale. This time around I will post all kinds of goodies not just punky pouches but you might see some pop in and out of there too. Plus I am open to suggestions on what people might be looking for in an etsy shop. I will post here and let you all know when things are up and running but for now I will post pictures of the things that I’ve made this last week for my daughter and niece.

as you can see my daughter loves hello kitty, but then again who doesn’t? For the pillow case dress I used this tutorial. So easy to follow and fun to make. I see more of these in the future for sure!

And now pictures of my kids on the first day of school. I can’t believe how fast they grow!
