I'm invited to a baby shower so.........

of course I had to make a diaper bag!

The bag features front and side pockets made from a fun animal print. The side pockets have elastic at the top and are great for bottles/sippy cups.

And I didn't have to purchase a all came from my stash!

Thanks for visiting!

Hobo-style Bag featuring chickens & sunflowers

The photos are of both sides of the bag. This fabric is pre-quilted and double sided. The other side is solid sunflowers but because I use interfacing to make my bags more sturdy you don't see the sunflowers inside, I lined it with white fabric. There is one zippered pocket and 4 slip pockets inside.

Thanks for visiting!

I went Baby Quilt crazy......image heavy

Don't get too excited, these quilts were made over the past year or so.
I love seeing quilts hanging on a clothes line.......

I'm not sure what I'm going to do with this quilt. It's made from a thrifted bed sheet.

This and the next small quilts will be donated to a local hospital NICU. They like small colorful quilts to put over the isolets. This is the first crazy patching I tried, it worked but I need to work on this technique.
The border fabric of the pink quilt was from a thrifted bed sheet and the fabric used for the blue quilt was originally curtains in Heather's sewing with repurposed fabrics :-)

Back to working on purses.....or maybe I'll finished the quilt I've been making for my bed. I make quilts for lots of people, but don't have one that I made on my own bed, how silly is that!!!

Thanks for visiting......Carolyn
