WIP Wednesday ~ Scraps & Design Walls ~

I’m so happy that Lee of Freshly Pieced has started up her WIP Wednesday’s again!  Last year I started to use Wednesday’s to share what I was working on, but posting it to share with others really helped me get through my checklists and become more efficient.  So today I have one big (at least to me) WIP that I completed last week. My overflowing scrap bin: This scrap bin has been accumulating fabric for what seems like years.  In the {Read More}

The Teardrop Bag

I have finally finished The Teardrop Bag by Emmaline Bags. It turned out wonderful and I’m so pleased with it!  I made the XL version so I could use it for day trips and pool visits this summer.  For the exterior, I used my favorite linen-duck cloth by Robert Allen. The interior and handles were a quilted cotton from our local quilt shop. I only added a few interior pockets, leaving out the zipper or magnetic closure. Those are extras {Read More}
