Working on my Vintage Baby Line for Canton and orders, can't keep up and as Martha would say "That's a good thing".
Baby on the Go Bags, handy to carry for a short trip.
And I can't say I've been planting and seeing to our Garden, my husband takes care of it, I'm waiting to do some canning. I just don't mix with HEAT, staying in and sewing has spoiled me to the air conditioner. This is an earlier picture and it has taken off and soon to be picked.
There's a new blog you need to visit, these girls are next to us at Canton and their booth is fantastic. They fit in with the look, cute as can be and a hoot. Just click on the picture to go to their blog.

Fabric used is Moda's Hello Betty by Chloe Closet. (Honey Bun). Can't wait to share this tutorial it was really fun to make.

I forgot to take a picture before I opened the tiles and had to undo the wadded wrapping. They were $9.99 with 40% off and they come with the sticky attachments to adhere the tiles to the poster board.
Then peel and put the sticky squares onto the back of the tiles
Turn over and press to poster board and you have an accessory to pin pattern pieces, quilt instructions, list for your next project and so on. I'll show pictures of it hanging in my sewing room as soon as I get some walls painted.
Now below is going to be another project and can't wait to finish it and show.
This is a child's chair and I will show you I drilled a small hole in the seat.

2 Fat Quarter (enough for two purses) I should of used two different fat quarters so you could tell the right side of the purse from the wrong side. Sorry.
1 piece of batting 18" X 22"
2 pieces of binding measuring 2 1/4" X wof
1 Piece of ribbon 30" long for handle
Large button of your choice
With 2 fat quarters sandwiched between batting I quilted the whole piece. It is easier to quilt a larger piece of fabric and you have two purses in no time. Quilting can be done anyway you choose, see mine below.
Now you are ready to cut two pieces measuring 13 1/2" X 20 1/2.
Take one piece of fabric and fold from the bottom up to 7 1/2", see mark below. Iron crease on bottom fold to mark fabric. This is the bottom of the purse where you folded it.
I took a saucer at this point to round off the top edge of the purse, you can use anything to make a curve.
Trim top edge of purse.
This is how it looks before sewing.
Cut binding 2 1/4" X wof.
After sewn trim away edge.
Iron seam open.
The first seam to sew is attaching the binding to the edge of the purse that is straight. It measures 13 1/2" long. I sew a 3/8" seam with my quilting foot.
Now attach binding all around the purse outer edge and curve. Go slow around the curve. Cut small slits around curve so it folds back easier. I don't trim my fabric away due to wanting the 3/8' seam, so the binding folds around it at the right measurement. Then fold back and sew on the right side of the purse in the seam.
Remember the crease you made with the iron folding the bottom up to 7 1/2", fold the bottom back up, pin and sew the sides of the purse edge.
