WIP Wednesday - May the Fourth Be With You!

In case you aren't a nerd like me, you might somehow have missed that May 4th is Star Wars day (because it sounds like "May the Force be with you").  And in that case, I apologize in advance for the pictures you are about to see...  but not really, because I enjoy Star Wars.  And don't worry, I somehow lost the pictures of me dressed as Princess Leia with giant fake hair buns attached to my head... (for that you ARE welcome)

BB-8 bracelet on top of my new metallic gold Star Wars fabric...which will someday become a purse!

Instead, enjoy some some shots of the fun bracelets I'll be making for craft shows (and custom orders) soon!  My youngest requested BB-8 since she loves Rey, and I couldn't leave out my son, so he gets the Death Star.  Of course the youngest thought she might also need a Death Star.  So now there are 2. (Always two there are.) (You should hear my Yoda impression.  It's better when I can do it without going into a coughing fit, so you are spared. This time.)
It's like a baby BB-8!

Yes, I do have BB-8 snaps.  Why wouldn't I??
Twin Death Stars over the Desert. They have Tie Fighter snaps.
Sugar Skull Vader fabric is already claimed for one project, good thing I stocked up!

I'm almost back to feeling alive, so hopefully I can get some real sewing done soon!

WIP: (Stuff sitting out on my work area and taking up space)


Brandt's Boulevard in skulls (x2 - different fabrics, another one in "Girly" fabric - need the first one by June 1 - I had the date wrong, shew.)

Star Wars Tote Purse - fabrics picked out Also moving up because this is needed by June 1! - In the new Darth Vader Sugar Skulls fabric!

My new challenge purse may jump to the top of the line because it seems like so much fun!! First one is finished, but of course I had to go crazy and cut a second one.  Look for the Emma post soon, when I manage to get some pretty pictures! It's a good thing it's a fast and simple sew, I'm pretty sure I was running a fever the entire time I was working on it...
So cute and little!
March BOM - Pirate BunnyBeard just needs his strap!

Embroidered pillow covers - need to cut a back piece after I figure out if I'm doing a zipper or envelope closure...I'm thinking of using my invisible zippers and doing another one from the same set of far the fish is in the lead for what will be stitched next.  I'm procrastinating because I don't want to have to lint roll the entire sewing area after I cut my next piece.  Not even exaggerating.

Pattern Testing for a secret project- need to start picking out fabric, but no sneak peaks of this one.  It's probably going to kill me not to be able to share!  LOL


Started a new lovey - sea turtle!  (because I'm avoiding the mermaid)

Mermaid lovey - Sea blanket is done, head is done (no hair), started on tail. Giant head is kind of freaking me out, so I need to finish her!


Start cutting out my backlog of bows and keychains so I'm maybe ahead of the game for the next Etsy orders and craft shows...

Sailor Moon Key Chains will be coming soon!  Need to decide on colors!

NIL (Next in Line-Things I plan on and want to do, but haven't gotten around to yet...)

Boronia Bowler - I really love the shape and wide open top featured on this purse, it would look amazing in just about any of my fabrics!!
Lotus Purse
Finish the Owl Epiphany purse
Crayon Rolls
Rosie Tsum Tsum purse
Tulip pouches (from this free pattern!!)
January Bag of the Month (Backgammon Bag) - Either in some Effervescence fabric or maybe the Zelda stained glass fabric
Quilted pillow covers - Sasquatch fabric is ready to go, just need some spare time!
May Bag of the Month - looks like a fast sew, but no idea what fabric I'll use...might need a random number to decide on that one too!


UFO (Unfinished Objects that are already started but I have no set time to work on and don't want to forget about them forever!)

Sedimental Quilt- all quilted, just needs squared up and binding - as soon as I finish a Serendipity Hip, this is getting the binding attached so I can hand sew and zone out in front of the tv!
Cowls - just need buttons and ends woven in.  Giving up on the one a month plan until it gets closer to craft season.
Bella II in Tula Pink Foxfield - outside is done, inside is cut and waiting for me to finish, already have someone that wants it!
Doctor Who Pick a Pocket - all the pieces are cut, just needs finished!
Goldfish Lovey - fish is made, bowl is mostly made, needs put together
Dragon Lovey - I have pieces and the blanket done
Serendipity Hip in MLP fabric with vinyl bottom
