WIP Wednesday - Halloween ETA 2 WEEKS!

GAH! Once again Halloween snuck up on me!  I do have the fabric and a general idea for the smallest minion's costume, she wants to be a fox with wings.  It should just involve a hoodie with ears, maybe a detachable tail, and possibly pants.  Hopefully.  Of course she wants me to sew the hoodie, so time to find a pattern, print it out, and get to work!

Nightmare Necessary Clutch Wallet (Emmaline)

I love the style and many pockets of the Necessary Clutch Wallet, and after making a bunch of them, it's almost becoming easy!  I still manage to mess up the pocket folding half the time...but other than that, they come together quickly.

WIP Wednesday - Chilly Willisters!

Ok, not technically a saying, but I tell my kids that it's "Chilly Willisters" out when it gets cold.  Today there was even snow falling!  :O
The most plush blanket...both sides are soft so it just needs satin binding on the edge! or I'll use it like this!

Game of Thrones Bonnie Bucket Bag (Swoon) - Moon Beam Textiles

After doing the 2 quick Clematis zipper pouches, I needed to come up with a project that used both the Moon Beam Textiles strike off fabrics.  Bonnie Bucket Bag by Swoon  is perfect for showcasing multiple fabrics and a fast sew!

WIP Wednesday - October (Cue Evil Laughter)

Mwahahahaha!  Although for me, the evil laughter has a slight tinge of panic in it.  My youngest is the only one that still gets/wants to wear a costume to school, and she hasn't decided what she wants to be yet...granted my usual costume plan involves them picking a costume in September, changing their mind 7 times, then settling on an obscure one in early October so that I can order supplies and procrastinate until the weekend before Halloween and then forgo sleep in an attempt to finish it.

GOT Clematis (Blue Calla) - Moon Beam Textiles

Somehow Game of Thrones is one fandom I haven't gotten totally sucked into, but I'm sure if I ever have a chance to sit down and watch the show, that will change!  The few parts of episodes that I've seen were gorgeous and very interesting, but it's not really a show I could watch with kids running around or only half pay attention to while crocheting...someday I'll have time!
The bottom piece is holographic scale vinyl, it looks black until the light hits and then RAINBOW!

The bottom vinyl is called 'fluidity' and has an awesome texture look!

WIP Wednesday - I'd Like More September, Please.

Did you know that there is less than 3 months until Christmas?  And barely more than a month until Halloween?  Once October starts, it's all downhill and will really pick up speed!
Hey look, a new project!  Just what I needed!
