fabric pouch project

Hello!  I took a break from paper crafting to sew up some cute pouches for my daughter's friends.  It had been such a long time since I sewed that I had to look up the tutorial I always turn to when sewing these zippered pouches.  You can find the tutorial HERE.

I made 6 pouches using different fabrics and fun colored zippers that I already had in my stash.  I had the batting also.  So now hubby thinks I have way too much stuff.  And it also helped having a zipper foot and a walking foot to sew.  Such good investments to my sewing hobby.  So glad I didn't have to order anything last minute during the busy Christmas season.

This was the first pouch I made using a cute Tsum fabric from Japan.  Love these fabrics from Japan.  The quality of the material is really good.

Here is another Tsum pouch.  Love the print on here too but this one is not from Japan and the material is a bit on the thinner side.

Then I made a mochi panda one (from Japan).  Mochi panda is adorable right?  And the print is really funny.  Below that is a kawaii style Avengers fabric. 

These were the last two I made, Pokemon and Sanrio.  The purple Sanrio is so cute with the different characters, probably one of my favorites.  My daughter's friends all have different likes.  They are all girls but they like Pokemon and Avengers too! 

Thanks so much for stopping by!

CUTE! So nice that all her friends have (sort of) matching bags!

Knuffle Bunny

Hi!  The Greeting Farm had their Customer Challenge & Chit Chat Night "A Night at the Bookstore" and introduced a few challenges.  I have to say chatting was too fast for me and I couldn't really keep up.  It was still early here, and I had to pick up the kids from school and activities and make dinner and eat and so I guess the timing didn't really work out with our schedule. You can check out the challenge details on the SCS forum HERE.  I made this card for Favorite Child's Book category.  It is based on the Mo Willems book Knuffle Bunny.  It's one of my kids' favorites and it's such a cute story.  We actually love reading Mo Willems' books especially his Elephant and Piggie series.  Those books are hilarious!  This challenge also made me realize that I haven't read many books recently except kids' books.  I used to love reading but just haven't given it much time lately.  Anyway, here is my card.

If you've read the story, yo…

lots and lots of tags!

Hi!  I've been making a lot of tags lately trying to get ready for Christmas and I am finally done.

These were made with Lawn Fawn stamps and dies.  I love this set.  It is so cute and funny!

Here is the back of the tags.  I think these would be so fun to put on gifts for children.  They would think the tags are so funny!

Here are the polar bear tags.  I love this polar bear.  His expression is so cute!

This is the back of the polar bears.

I also made more of the tags I had made last year.  So these are all listed in my shop now.  I tried to make a lot at one time because I'm not sure if I'll be making more of these designs this year.  I want to make some newer ones with some of my dies that I have not used yet!  Trying so hard to not buy more than I can use.  Although sometimes that is so difficult!  I was really good in September and did not buy any new Mama Elephant or the cute Bitty Bears from Birdie Brown.  I had such restraint but who knows how long that will last t…

August 2012

Hi!  We had a short black out this morning and I didn't know what to do without my computer and internet, and I couldn't go blog surfing.  I was sad but I did cut everything out for my kids' Halloween goody bags.  Good thing my Big Shot isn't electric. 

Anyway, I made another page to my 2012 calendar/scrapbook using MFT's sketch #39 and Pure Innocence Year of Flowers series Poppy.

Here's my page.  Somehow I'm not loving this one too much.  I love the image but somehow the colors remind me of fall too much and not too summery.  And I think the proportions are a bit off.  But I decided to just stick with it.  It's still cute.

Here's a picture of both pages.

I'm gonna have to wait til I order the next couple months to continue.  But I'm happy I've made it this far!

The kiddies are home for fall break.  It's nice but messy and noisy.  It may be a long week.

Thanks for reading!
