WIP Wednesday - Panic Is Creeping Closer

Last week I had PLENTY of time to get everything done, but then I hit a time warp and suddenly I have a million things to do in the next week...finish up a pattern test, make 2 more projects to show off some fun new fabric coming, and work on the purse orders starting to stack up!
Custom kitty is shipping out today!
Back of diaper bag being tested with strikeoff wand motion fabric, so many strap options, including backpack style!
Here's another sneak peek of the pattern being released on Friday, it's a mid-sized diaper bag, but I'm going to try some of my laptops and other electronics inside since I have no babies in my life right now!
Watch for Lego Batman in a Speedo to make guest appearances whenever I remember to include him.

When I'm in a time crunch, that's the perfect opportunity to suddenly try something new and totally procrastinate on deadlines...which means that I decided to try making some embroidered stuffies!  They are super cute and relatively fast to do, and can be personalized!  I love the Doctor Who bear, and now I have plans to make a few more with my custom minky stash since I never got around to making cowls and eventually it will warm up again...
The pocket is pretty big, that's the illustrated hardback version!
I'm slowly getting more pillows stitched out for etsy pictures, but mainly ordered ones so far!  I did stock up on fabric and now I have some Game of Thrones ones I'll be working on shortly!
Getting ready to go to her new home!

  • 2 more Hogwarts clutches -just need packed and shipped!
  • Harry Potter embroidered reading pillow - already shipped
  • Diaper Bag Pattern test - Strap and topstitching left, have to finish tonight!

  • WeeBee baby doll  - Just needs some face details, and maybe a swimsuit to wear when she's not in her tail...bikini sort of works...made up my own pattern and it's interesting...
  • Chunky Unicorn Blanket - almost finished up to the hood, then just ears, horn, and fringe!
  • C2C (corner to corner) baby doll blanket crochet with some random scarfie yarn - Need to figure out what hook I was using...
  • Mermaid tail towel, 2 skeins of yarn into this, I must be doing something wrong because it's not THAT big yet and I only have 2 or 3 more skeins to go.
So strange how new fabric magically shows up on my doorstep...
