One Yard Wonder

For Christmas I got the book One Yard Wonders. I made this bag with my one yard of Japanese fabric I got at Crafty Planet in September. I love it!! It was so easy to make...can't wait until summer to carry it.

Amy Butler Field Tote favorite bag of all!!! I love the Field Tote. I did not make the cording around the bottom but the bag is still cute. I like the modern daiper bag also but I love the shape of the field tote and it actually wasn't that hard of a bag to sew. I made two in one week for Christmas presents. I forgot to take a pic of my sisters but I didn't use Amy fabric with hers...I know you all would be so proud. I know I say you I have blog followers. I honestly believe the only one that reads this thing is my sister...haha!!! Enjoy the picture of my sister-in-law opening her bag on Christmas Eve. Enjoy!!

Another Modern Daiper Bag

Okay, I made this daiper bag for my aunt. I used canvas instead of all the fusible interfacing. The shape was not as strong as it was with the interfacing. I guess you learn by your mistakes. I did add a cardboard bottom to give it some stability.

Christmas Stockings

Below is my favorite project of the Christmas season. I make stockings for the Aliveness Project in Minneapolis, MN. This year I made 42 stockings and ornaments to go with. My goal for 2010 is 80 stockings... I need to get sewing!!!
