WIP Wednesday {8.15.12}

So it's Wednesday again. Amazing how that just keeps happening. And we are already halfway through August and that is just blowing my mind. I am kind of excited for fall, I must admit, although I'm sure I'll regret it once it's here and I remember how much I hate being cold. But anyway, crafty things. I am moving right along down my list and it feels good. I never get quite as much done as I want to, but I'm doing alright. If only my little love bug would go back to actually sleeping during naptime instead of talking to herself and distracting me....


ipad case

I finally finished this! I used the tutorial over at Fresh Lemons Quilts, which I have used before and love. It is a bit wonky because of the foam I used inside, but it turned out really nice and I hope she likes it. I'll post more about this later.


duffle bag

Everything except the batting is cut and ready to go. This is my project for today. And it is for me so I am pretty excited.

phone case
I didn't take a picture, but I have the fabric and measurements all figured out. I just have to do it.

zippy clutch

Pieces all cut and ready to go.

nikki tote bag
I pulled a stack of fabric for this. It will be a gift for my moms birthday in less than 3 weeks, so I have to make it soon.

Still Going:

skill builder

This pictures is from the other day before I started sewing down the binding, but I actually finished the binding last night (thank you netflix free trial).  I just need to wash it and hope it doesn't fall apart and then figure out how to take pictures of something so large. 

*wedding quilt - this is not at all a priority right now, but I don't want to forget it
*baby quilt -inspiration has struck...once I have time to put it together

The next week will be finishing all that up and figure out my next round of things to make. I can't wait to show off the skill builder finish, I am so in love with it and anticipate it will be on my bed by the end of the week.  I haven't even though far enough to figure out exactly what is next, but I guess I have enough to keep me busy for right now. Hope everyone is having a lovely week!

  3. I like the bright colors you chose for your iPad case. I just came across that duffle pattern and would like to try it out, but I'm a little scared. It looks like it could be difficult for a new sewist.
