WIP Wednesday - 11 Days Until Christmas!

Is anyone actually ready for Christmas??  I know I'm not...  But I do have some awesome 'Ugly Sweater' style Harry Potter custom knit fabric that is going to jump the line this weekend because there is only limited time to wear it!  Although I can probably squeeze a few more months of wear since it's not technically Christmas images...or wear it at home where I don't care what holiday it 'goes' with as long as it is clean...
Faux sparkle fabric that's printed to look sparkly, but it really isn't.  Blows my mind!

I'm down to 2 more orders, and I have to finish them up this weekend!  Plus Christmas cards are over halfway finished (probably not going to have them ready to mail tomorrow, which was my original goal...) so I'm actually ahead of where I was at this time last year!  It's about time to start baking cookies to mail out, and figuring out the rest of the family's presents...but I have a whole 11 more days for that!
Next Harry Potter purse on the planning stage, going to cut into my hoard of Marauders Map fabric!
I still have a few more infinity scarves that sneak into my sewing randomly, this was for my son!
Joann's flannel from the Black Friday sale, already using some of it!
Imagine it's around your neck...

I've kind of slacked on teacher gifts this year, so I think they'll get a gift card and a note that they can pick a handmade gift of their choice...with a deadline of the end of January for delivery.  ;)

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



  December NEED to finish list:

  • another MLP purse (Emma)
  • Wizard of Oz Window Shopper
  • Fleece Mermaid tails for orders
  • Harry Potter purse
  • Flannel infinity scarves...I have bolts of flannel that would make adorable scarves!  My kids have requested some (all my kids have scarves of some sort!  Now for hats...) and I'd love to make a few for the scarf, hat and mitten tree they do at the elementary school...
  • PJ pants/nightgowns for my own kids (been promising them some for a few years now...)
  • HP Ugly Sweater shirt

The "I've given up on deadlines and just want them done at some point"-list:

  • Sew hoods onto towels - 2 more to go...
  • March BOM -Just needs some rivets and Pirate Bunnybeard will be on etsy!
  • Cross body strap on the Boronia's not that much work, but I keep procrastinating.
  • Serendipity Owl Bag - needs just topstitching and handles attached, really need to get this one finished and listed on etsy!  It's a perfect fall bag or gift for an owl lover!
  • Crayon rolls - keep sewing my cut ones, I have so much awesome fabric for these! 
  • Tulip pouches - started cutting out some fun ones! Perfect for pencil cases or glasses cases or ....! (pattern)
  • Wisteria Wallets - Need to work on the 2 more that are ready to go!
  • 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.  Still procrastinating because I don't want to have to lint roll the entire sewing area after I cut my next piece.  Not even exaggerating.
  • Sedimental Quilt- working on binding while I watch TV - almost half done! - Took a little hiatus after a spider crawled out of it.  I think the spider has died/moved on, so it might be okay to go back to it...
  • Brandt's Boulevard in sugar skulls, another one in "Girly" fabric for a later date



  • Back at the Ava Cowls - put buttons on most of the finished ones, still have more I started and need to finish!
  • Working on a few hats, trying to find an amazing and fast pattern...
  • Giraffe photographer is coming along, one horn and two ears in!
  • Sea turtle lovey - well....the shell is on, and it's kind of obvious that one fin is bigger, so he's a sea turtle with a 'lucky' fin...or he'll hold his blanket there...
  • 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!  - I really want to redo her head smaller, it's probably too big for the blanket...


  • Pencil Toppers for class gifts - I have until Friday to finish up almost 60!
  • Embroidered kitchen/hand towels - want to use up my towel stash!- Did several more for the craft shows, now to make some for Etsy!
  • Hooded towels:  Jack Skellington, Star Wars characters, more Pokemon, more Ponies...
  • Keep cutting out my backlog of bows and keychains.  I didn't cut out everything in my stash, so I need to keep working on them!
  • Stitch out more couch pillows (and finish them) - I'd like to get the pillow forms out of my craft area and onto the couches!
  • More patches! - going to test them as magnets and see if my glue is strong enough to hold

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

  • May Bag of the Month- Swoon Brooklyn - I think I'm going with a Doctor Who random toss fabric that glows in the dark and blue glitter vinyl.
  • Alice in Wonderland Bonnie
  • Venom Messenger Bag (considering THIS pattern by RLR)
  • Jack Skellington Messenger Bag
  • Lotus Purse
  • Crayon Rolls - These never end
  • Rosie Tsum Tsum purse
  • 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!

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!).

  • 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 - pieces and the blanket done
  • Serendipity Hip in MLP fabric with vinyl bottom
