WIP Wednesday - Getting Caught Up...Again...Almost

It's time to start organizing and rearranging my sewing area, which will be a BIG task, so I'm trying to get all the orders out the door and get ahead of everything else I might need for the next month or 2...which means I should probably stitch out more Mulan combs, just in case!
Tab for the Pick a Pocket wallet, Too cute!!

Got a few more towels out the door and either delivered or in the mail!

I think I need to try a silver crowned one to match with the new movie!

I have one Pick a Pocket wallet in progress, and hope to finish it tonight or tomorrow, plus the Ellen's Esplanade sew along starting on Friday...Good thing that's a fast pattern, I might have to work some internet magic to stretch it out for the sew along but actually finish it early (hopefully!)  I already decided to go with the Harry Potter coffee fabric for the outside.  Picking fabric is one of the hardest parts of a new purse!
I went with the blue background since I'm Ravenclaw.  ;)
I did finish the Jack and Sally towel set at least!  They are on the bath sheet towels and will be right side up when hung over a towel rack.  Perfect for adults!
Towels are actually dark blue, the color is pretty off in this picture...that's what I get for quick late night pics!
I also had several fabric preorders come in all at once...This giant coffee panel is going to probably become a tank top.  Or a tote bag.  Or decorate my stash. ;)
Snowy Owl Fabric - retail is coming soon!
Also, I need a Gaston focused pair of leggings or shirt or something...
Fabric from The Little Hatcher

Current Projects:

  • Ruched Shirt - Going to try this one using some of my less fancy knit fabric, hopefully it is fast and flattering! 
  • Nightmare Before Christmas Sydney purse - Considering it done, just waiting for a strap hardware piece and then 5 minutes of sewing to totally finished!  Done and delivered, will blog about it soon!
  • Shih Tzu wallet - Started cutting! Just interfacing left, then sewing!
  • Neon Characters Sandra Purse - Rush turn around for a fabric strike off, need to get it done asap! Done and blogged!
  • Moana India hobo bag - Also strike off sample, need to have it done fast as well! Will blog about this one soon!
  • Ellen's Esplanade - Using some awesome custom printed Harry Potter Coffee fabric!

Current Crochet Projects:

  • WeeBee baby doll  -  Tail/bikini left. 
  • Chunky Unicorn Blanket - stocked up on yarn, now to find time to sit and crochet!
  • Started working on cowls for the fall because they are mindless and fast...but I really should totally finish them, not leave them with tails and button-less...
