I am very proud of myself this week for finishing not one, but two projects. Ok, these are not exactly queen size quilts, but I'm not ready for that anyway and so I am very happy with my small accomplishments.
First this tiny handbag, made using the very simple Butterick's Retro Tie Bag pattern, which you can download for free from their website.
The outside fabric is a nice little pied-de-poule print that I simply adore, and which looks great with my spring jacket. Inside are hidden huge colorful flowers.
My second finish this week is Pink Penguin's Fabric Basket. I love this pattern and the fact that it allows me to use some really small pieces of fabric, like the tiny japanese prints that I've used for the patchwork on this one. I only had scraps of these fabrics, but there was enough for one basket. I think it looks at its best with really small prints, and I have one more in the making with other japanese fabrics.
Don't miss out all the great links on Amy's blog, plus the most adorable baby picture!
And come back to visit me on Monday as I will be offering some goodies in the Sew, Mama, Sew's May Giveaway Day.
