In between working on quilts I like to make fun little projects. Here’s what I’ve been making the past month or so.
Quilted Tote Bag
Gathered Top Purse – love that ‘sewing’ fabric
Pincushion made from a china sugar bowl that I bought on eBay (very cheap!)
Perfect tote bag – and made from great fabric!
Gathered bowls – these are great for travel to catch all those lose things like keys, watch, earrings, change, chap stick, etc, plus they pack well and are machine washable.
Journal cover (shapes cut by my friend, Shelley)
Tissue pack covers – the second one I made a bit larger and it works better
Recycle towel – this was an old towel (my grandmothers I think), it was in the rag bag for awhile, then I read in a quilt magazine that you can use left over binding to finish the edge of frayed towels then use them as a rug or bathmat (it’s double thickness). Works great!
Quilting notebook cover – this is the little book I take with me to quilt shops, it has my favorite patterns and how much fabric is required. And it has all kinds of quilting notes in there. Comes in very handy.
Zippered totes – I made these for Shelley and Janet at the summer quilting retreat. Janet’s quote is from Rocky Horror Picture Show and she requested it be on her tote.
I hope these have inspired you to do some sewing, too!
