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!

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.

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!

no BUTTS about it

Hello!  Today I have a series of cards to share which I think are super cute and funny too.  I love Birdie Brown's stamp sets available at MFT and the cards today uses the behind images of the cat, dog & pig found in Cool Cat, Lucky Dog and Hog Heaven. 

I had a couple of ideas for the design of this card but I felt the sentiment called for multiple images of the animal's behind.  I just couldn't let there be one image and the sentiment have plural Butts.  I know that is weird of me but things like that drive me a little crazy.  I won't get into how people misuse plural and possessive s though.  That really drives me crazy.  Anyway, so then I thought this would be a cute way to stamp multiple images over the card.  I created the sentiment on the front using an alphabet set from Lawn Fawn.

This is the sentiment on the inside which comes in the Cool Cat stamp set.

Here is the dog version.  These cards took a lot of time to color!
