Penny Inn Sew Along - Week 3

Now it's time to get into the magic of this pattern.  If you've never made it before, you need to pay close attention when it tells you to sew to a specific spot, and this is the perfect time to pull out the disappearing markers/Frixion pens, or tailor's chalk.
These are a few of my favorite marking items!
This week, we need to work on finishing the outside, plus getting started on the inside.  There are 9 major sections left, so we're going to go for broke and get this done in the next 2 weeks!

WIP Wednesday - Stay on Target!

Well, at least I didn't add anything new to my list last week...except for the Valentine's treats I procrastinated on...but other than those 56 items, nothing else new was added!
Just made the exact number of Eevee and bookmarks, but I have extra Mudkips!

Sparkly Princess Emma Bags

Once again the Emma by ChrisW has proven to be the perfect purse for little girls!  This time I was commissioned to make some for sisters, and since they are little girls that love all things sparkly, I broke into my stash of pre-glittered Disney princess fabrics.

Penny Inn Sew Along Week 2!

It's finally time to start sewing!  If you are still cutting out the pieces (like me!) don't worry, it's all going to come together like a miracle at the end and we still have the second half of the sew along to play catch up!
Dug out the pictures of the other flap I made....
For the first part of this week, we are doing steps 4-7.  If you are not doing any straps, you can skip steps 5 and 6 and be that much closer to finished!  ;)  If' you haven't done it yet, cut out the fabric and fuse the interfacing as directed in the instructions.  You shouldn't have the decovil fused yet, or the interfacing for card pockets A and B.

WIP Wednesday - Productive Procrastination

Once again my productive procrastination skills are in effect...instead of working on finishing up the UFO's on my list or prepping for the sew along that started Monday, I started new projects...but they are orders, so it's all good.  Last weekend I finished up the last of the Magnolia Mini Messenger then started 2 new rush order purses for little girls...  Fortunately the Emma purses are pretty fast to sew, already over halfway done with the first one and the second one is also prepped!
Outside is all together, just needs the inside finished!

Penny Inn Sew Along - Getting Started! - Week 1

(Just a reminder, the Penny Inn has been a sew along before, and you can find all the guidelines and steps HERE on Christine's blog!  I'm sure my instructions will be very similar, but if you are getting confused or want to work ahead, feel free to jump over there and see if that makes more sense!)

Sorry, this is the only one I have pictures of for now!
Everybody ready??  It's time to get started!  If you want to see a few more shots of my last Penny Inn, here's the blog post!
