I've chosen two blocks and may decide to save one of them for 2016. The patterns are Twinkle and Soul Searching from the book Making Quilts - The Promise of Joy by Kathy Doughty (Material Obsession). My friend Mary from Needled Mom did Soul Searching last year and I loved it. Wanda Hanson from Exuberant Color also made one. My Brown Bagger friends and I made Twinkle in 2012 as a group birthday gift for my friend Marion. I have cut out the blocks in pink and in blue, but haven't had a chance to sew them yet.
I did use some lovely pinks from the scrap drawer to make little zipper bags! I obsessed for a while because all my zippers were not the same shade of pink, but finally I talked myself down from the ledge.
|I made these all from the same fabric.|
|This is the perfect size to hold a few credit cards or your ear buds.|
True confessions? I made these using my embroidery machine. The CD is called Boutique Zipper Case and Fanny Pack by Pickle Pie Designs. They were so easy to make that I made four more for the girls in a larger size. You know what takes me the longest? Picking out the fabric and cutting the pieces to size. There is a third, larger size on the CD but it doesn't work on my embroidery machine.
|Two of these are the same print, but the medium size bag uses more fabric, |
so I went wild and made the other two different.
|Here you can see the small bag next to the medium bag.|
