Amy Butler Field Tote

I finished my tote last night!  I absolutely love it!  It turned out perfect, I can't wait to use it.  The fabric is from the Amy Butler "Love Collection".  This bag is a wonderful overnight bag and has many pockets.

Scrapbook Page Swap

This is the page I completed for a "color" themed scrapbook page swap.  The requirements were 2 layers and 1 embellishment.  I think it turned out cute!

Bags for my nieces....

I made the following two bags for Amanda and Jordan for them to set out for the Easter Bunny.  The next morning they were full of wonderful treats!  The girls loved them and use them all the time.

Card Swap

These are cards I made recently for a card swap I was in on Split Coast.  I love doing swaps!  It is a great way to learn new techniques and get new ideas!

So after making the quilt, my MIL (mother-in-law) recommended that I take a sewing class to help me get going.  I stopped at the Fat Quarter Quilt Shop and signed up for a class to make the Amy Butler "Sling Bag".  Below is the bag I made in the class and have since made many other ones for family and friends.  I just love it!  I totally could make them in my sleep now!  :-) 

My First Sewing Endeavor

Last summer I bought this quilt pattern and worked on it some while planning for the wedding.  I actually finished it this past February and I just love it.  I think I did pretty well for learning to sew when I am 30.  I got my first sewing machine for Christmas last year from my mother-in-law and I just love it.....I can't stop sewing now!
