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.
Awesome shirt panel from Backstitch fabrics
I have this in giant minky and small t-shirt sized panels.  I'm thinking snugly blanket and pillows for the couch!

So many awesome characters!
There was some progress made this week...but not as much as I hoped!  Cutting out the embroidered backlog is a never ending task...but I made a small dent!
Finger puppets, book marks, pencil toppers and key chains!

And I even started sewing some of the crayon rolls that have been cut out for almost a year.  Or maybe more than a year....
Hopefully kids still like pirates...I mean what's NOT to like about pirates?
And in other random news, I think my book only has one more round of review before I start my quest to get it published!

Current Projects:

  • Ellen's Esplanade - Using some awesome custom printed Harry Potter Coffee fabric!Done!
  • Possibly pattern testing - Fabric selected, now to squeeze it in between packing!
  • Ruched Shirt - Going to try this one using some of my less fancy knit fabric, hopefully it is fast and flattering! 

Current Crochet Projects:

  • WeeBee baby doll  -  Tail/bikini left. 
  • Chunky Unicorn Blanket - almost finished up to the hood, then just ears, horn, and fringe!
  • Figuring out C2C (corner to corner) crochet with some random scarfie's pretty fast and fun so far, but I haven't gotten to the decrease part yet...
  • 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...

Next Projects: (orders and using up fabric)

  • Handkerchief Purse
  • Bag of the Month - February and March - going to try to do at least 4 of the patterns before the club ends in June!
  • custom knit leggings - Harry Potter marauder's map (?)
  • Tote bags using my new coffee panels - India Swoon Pattern?
  • Baby quilt - Jungle Path pattern
  • Baby Mermaid gown
