WIP Wednesday - I Don't Have a Problem...

I'm just prepared for any fabric and craft shortages!  My WIP this week (and probably the next few weeks) is my new sewing studio!  I'm planning on making it awesome, but for now I will settle for just having a table so I don't have to embroider on the floor (it works - but it's hard to trim the threads!)

That's almost all my craft stuff...but not my scrapbook supplies...I'm going to need a bigger, room....or a really good organizational method.  Ikea trip! 

(Psst, Check out the new Bag of the Month Club pattern tomorrow, it's AWESOME!!)

All that's happening now is packing and more packing.  To keep the blog active, here's some pretty fabric to look at.

Pick A Pocket Wallet - Shih Tzu Style

Somehow I missed sharing the final pics of this adorable wallet!!  This is the Pick a Pocket from ChrisW, still one of my most requested patterns!  I think I need to make another one with the extra Shih Tzu fabric, it is just too cute!!
Cute puppies!

W(not)IP - Sewing Withdrawal!

I took my embroidery machine in last week, and even unplugged my sewing machine!  I feel like I need a sewing fix!!  Maybe I'll sneak in a quick zippered pouch or 5 from the free Pixie pattern from XOXO by Lauren...

Magical Coffee - Ellen's' Esplanade Sew Along

The Ellen's Esplanade Sew along is finished, and so is my purse!  I hope everyone had fun sewing along, (or living vicariously through my sewing journey) and I have seen quite a few amazing purses in the group!  Thanks to everyone that joined in, and keep posting your finished pictures on instagram and in the FaceBook group!
I totally love this fabric!

WIP Wednesday - Break Time!

I've got everything finished up that I needed to before the move, so now it's time to pack like a maniac!  And I'm sure once we get moved in I'll go through my stash again and see what I can thin out!

Nightmare Messenger Bag - (Sydney by Swoon)

The final Swoon Sydney (affiliated pattern link) in my mass production madness was a Nightmare Before Christmas one.  The request for this purse was only for 2 of my fabrics -- so much less chaotic than the super fandom Sydney!  Although that seemed a little boring after playing with all the other fabrics on the last one, so I snuck in a third fabric to give the pockets a pop of color!
So many awesome pockets on the outside!

WIP Thursday - May the 4th Be With You!

Once again it's time to celebrate my nerdiness...With Star Wars day!  And what better way than with new fabrics!  I didn't have time to turn these into anything amazing (yet), but I have plans.  BIG plans.

Business Time - Magnolia Mini Messenger

It's a good thing I practiced on all those other Magnolia's, (here: 1, 2, 3, 4)now I can almost make them in my sleep!  This was one of my fastest finishes ever, but it was also the plainest purse I've ever made!
The camera picked up on extra lint, I'm going to pretend it's not there.
