WIP Wednesday - Slowly Chipping Away at the List

Sometimes you just have to stop procrastinating and finally do the simple task you've been putting off...
Late night couch picture, too tired to pull out the light box!

Adventurous Potter Bonnie Bucket Bag (Swoon) With Concealed Pocket

Sometimes when I get a request for a bag, we go through several stages to find the 'perfect' one!  This bag is the result of a few months of back and forth emails and etsy conversations, but I think it turned out great!
Technically the back, with the zipper, but love how it looks!

WIP Thursday - It's All Fun And Games

...Until you realize you spend more time with the seam ripper than sewing...which was me this weekend.
Next wallet, hopefully much less seam ripping...

WIP Wednesday - Finally Got That Nap

Naps are amazing.  Why do we waste them on toddlers? I could totally use them now!

Boon Wallet (XOXO by Lauren)- Teacher Gifts

I have limited myself to only doing teacher gifts when they are in elementary school (I'm sorry middle and high school teachers, you deserve it just as much, but this year has shown me that trying to fit in extra is just not going to work for me!)  but this was the last year for my son, and somehow I forgot that in 5th grade they rotate through teachers.  He had 3 main teachers, so I had to do something for all of them...

Skulls and Stripes - India (Swoon) Moon Beam Textiles

Did you ever make something and think, "Wow, I wish I was cool enough to use this?"  I'm pretty sure my kids would tell me that I'm NOT cool enough to carry this purse!
Red zipper totally pops!

WIP Thursday - Is It Nap Time Yet?

I still haven't fully recovered from my illness, but there's no time for sleep yet!  (Also I'm coughing so much I don't get much sleep anyway)
Preview of all the teacher gifts, they loved them! Features on them soon!

Hobbit Morning Glory Pouch (Blue Calla) - Moon Beam Textiles

The second piece of the After Dark fabric from Moon Beam Textiles (aff link) was intended for a clutch, but nothing I was running across really seemed to make it pop.  The Morning Glory pouch from Blue Calla has been on my list for a while, but without a plan.  Then I started looking at what could fit in the flap accent hole, and my stash of Hobbit fabric was perfect!  It's a Hobbit door, from a previous Moon Beam run, and I won't say how long it's been in my stash...
I debated on the correct 'up' for this door, but I finally decided doors open both ways, so it's all good.

Footprints In The Sands of Tattooine - Moon Beam Textiles

The newest rounds are open at Moon Beam Textiles! (affiliate link)  Lately they've needed all the ambassadors to pitch in with the new fabric rounds, which I'm not complaining, but squeezing in projects for awesome fabrics is limiting what I have time to make!  For this one, I got 2 pieces of the Moon Beam Textiles After Dark 'glitter' fabrics.  They are like skin tones, but to me they looked like sand and dirt!
