Treasures, A Bag, and Some Play Time

Treasures from JoAnn's today. Amy Butler scrapbook papers, brads and stickers etc. LOVE the Sage green iron wall art I found with serious clearance prices. I finished my first Jelly bag today the pattern is by Bunny Hill with Folkorique jelly roll. Folkorique was designed by Fig Tree Quilts and Moda. I will have to say that it was quite challenging in spots. I have been sewing for 26 years and still struggled. I think because my focus is on quilting I have forgotten some sewing things associated with patterns and the fact that I was interrupted 10,000 times making it, but who's counting? But I learned how to make fabric covered buttons, a first for me.

Since the baby was sleeping I thought I would try to get in more sewing time and start those 'Britches' for her. So I traced the pattern on red dot and went to town...until I read the directions and was reminded to PRE-WASH the fabric!! So that stalled my progress. Off to the laundry I went with my Mod Girls fabric.

Oh sew yummy goodies! I too have been sewing for many years, and I too get challenged when it's non-quilting kind of sewing. Just too focused on quilting - which is not such a bad thing, eh! :o)
