Wonder Wallet

Filed Under Sewing | 9 Comments

Outside of walletI whipped this wallet up tonight for Jillian. She picked out the music notes and instruments material last weekend at Jo-Ann Fabrics because she’s a band geek :)

The pattern is from Lazy Girl Designs and was very easy to follow. You can make two wallets with one fat quarter. I used two fat quarters of two different materials to make the contrast between the pockets.  You can see the Walmart card in one pocket and a quarter sticking out of the change pocket.

I plan to make quite a few of these and give them to friends. Becca wants one out of the same material since she loves black and white so much! I’m going to make one for myself to match the purse I made last weekend. I still have to post pictures of it…. I’ll try to do that tomorrow.

Next I plan to work on the curtains for Becca’s room. She picked out the material a while ago and we haven’t gotten around to making them yet… they’re zebra stripes and will match her black and white comforter. Should be interesting, but she’s excited about it! lol!

Black and White!

I just won the bid on this jelly roll of black and white material!  I’m so excited!  I’m planning to make a quilt for Becca to take to college andblack and white her whole bedroom now is done in black and white with a splash of pink.  So, a black and white quilt to take to college will make her feel like she has a little piece of home with her.

Now I’ve got to come up with a design.  I found a neat pattern called a braid that would be nice, but I’m not sure if it would be too busy for this fabric.  I’m debating about whether or not to make this a surprise, or to have her pick out what she wants for a pattern.  I guess that will depend on whether or not she catches a glimpse at the material! lol!  If she sees the material, she will definitely know it’s for her!

I think she’ll be excited by  it.  I’ll have to see if the lady that I bought it from has any extra yards of the material so that maybe I can make her a pillow or something to match it too.

I’m anxious to get started now!  Can’t wait till it arrives!

Clothes for dogs?

Dog ClothesEvery time my girls see a little dog dressed in dog clothes, they go crazy! Our dog Lexi would never stand for it, but they keep begging for a new, little dog that they can dress up! While that’s not going to happen any time soon, they still enjoy looking at all the dog clothes that are available.

I found the pattern and directions on how to make this adorable little coat over at Sewing @ Circle of Crafters. You can even resize this pattern to fit your dog! That pattern is very simple and should take no time at all to make. Let me know if anyone uses it to make their pet a nice coat!

Stop on over at my brand new blog,  All About Our Pets.  I plan to feature all kinds of information about our pets, and pets in general.  Hope you enjoy it!

Happy New Year!
