I went to Hobby Lobby at lunch Wednesday just to get out of here for a bit and used my monthly 40% off coupon to make this super smart purchase.
This book is great! It's visually stimulating, it has cute projects and patterns are included in a little envelope in the cover. LOVE IT.

I have already completed one of the projects (with a few of my own minor adjustments) and it turned out great. Easy to follow!

I almost got the Lotta Jansdotter book, but I love Amy Butler stuff TOO much.

Chirpy Little Bird

I used a pattern from Spool Sewing to make this super cute little bird. I am going to make ornaments out of them for gifts I think.

Another possible Christmas gift!!!

Hot Pad & Napkin

I was busy this weekend.

I used some old fat quarters to make this set of two hot pads and two napkins. This may be a Christmas present.

Boxy Pouch

Well, I tried the Boxy pouch. I adjusted the measurements from the tute, so this is more like a boxy shaving kit or large makeup bag. The photo did not turn out too well, but the pouch did.

I think I'm going to re-make it with stiffer fabric and some interfacing so it holds it's shape a little better, but I like it. I used an Amy Butler fat quarter and 18 inch cream zip.
