WIP Wednesday - Need To Be MORE Productive!

I feel like I have a lot I'm getting done, but somehow it doesn't look like it...I'm still cutting out the pieces for the sew-along, and running the embroidery machine non-stop!
I love this fabric...I missed my chance to get more!
The sew along is 'just for fun' and will be a new laptop bag for me, so I also have to make sure I'm staying caught up on orders and within the deadlines! I started cutting out the next order last night, a Princess Bride Pegasus that will be similar to mine, but not exactly the same!  Once that is done, I can go back to the Sew Along for a few steps, then back to the next order, a Speedwell Sling bag!

The good news for me is that purse orders have slowed down this month, but embroidery ones have picked up so I might actually get everything on my list finished, but I'm still getting quick projects to do!  

Current Projects and Orders:

  • Sew Along Factotum- outside is almost all cut, now onto lining and interfacing...
  • Speedwell sling in silhouettes fabric
  • Mermaid morning glory pouch (half cut out! just for fun project so no rush)
  • Sandra Saddle bag in blue Toothless fabric (fabric on preorder)
  • Princess Bride Pegasus - Started cutting, need to make sure I don't get behind!
  • Stitch Annette purse
  • Sydney with Castles and Disney (For a local friend who told me 'when you have time' but I told her that would be never, so leaving it on the list and bumping it near the top)
  • Need to add the Bandana purse back on the list, have the materials, just need time to figure it out
  • Sandra Saddle bag in rainbow Toothless fabric (minion order)
  • French Terry PJ shorts for one kid (and me)
  • raglan style shirt for me with hood and fun fabric

Current Embroidery Projects:

  • Etsy orders
  • Hooded towels 
  • Need to stitch up some sample bunny and bear stuffies using my awesome minky!
  • More applique key chains!  Deadpool might be making an appearance soon!

Current Crochet Projects:

  • Scrap buster C2C using random odds and ends...just needs ends woven in!
  • Started a dragon scarf with one of my Black Friday sale buys...
  • Cotton coffee cup cozies - add buttons and felties, keep making more...
  • 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.

Next Projects: (orders and using up fabric)

  • crayon rolls - Finish up and list on Etsy
  • Swoon Sydney messenger bags for birthday presents (from April and May...)

Fast finishes (hopefully)
