New idea for the Ladybug Mini purse!

New idea!
Originally uploaded by Sew Spoiled
I love the Ladybug Mini Purse e-book pattern but I took a closer look at it and revamped the zipper. Before the zipper placement was at the top and only 3" inches wide. Which is great for a cell phone pouch but for anything else it was difficult to use. With the zipper on the side you can easily get into it and find what you need. It also allows you to use the ladybug for larger accessories, like the Ipod touch:) If you have already purchased the Ladybug, Mini Purse e-book pattern at www.sewspoiled.etsy.com just write me at lmwilliams@nc.rr.com and I will send you the 4 page PDF file to your email account for free. Make sure to continue to stop by at Sew Spoiled's blog to check on pattern updates, reviews, free tutorials and giveaways.

I love this new pattern. If you sew a lot with your machine this is a good project for you because it calls for hand sewing (in 2 steps) so you can practice your ability. I can't wait to get some really cute pins too. Sandi Henderson's patterns are beautiful with every page in full color!!! Also if you have your own small store the copy right is written so small home sewers are able to sell their projects they finish using her designs. Thank you Sandi for being so generous, I love your patterns!!!

Sew Spoiled Ladybug Shoulder bag

Here is one of my recent creations. I love this fabric but it was a little challenging to line up the lines in both fabric prints. With some extra thought and careful stitching I think it turned out great! I can't wait to send it to my step-mom:) It is perfect for this season!

Sew Mama Sew!!

Recently I have been linked to Sew Mama Sew!! Thank you Beth for the wonderful opportunity to share my work with your readers. If this is your first time stopping by my blog, please free to say "Hi!". I love reading comments from my readers. It inspires me to write more:)
The reason for the link is my Classroom Cozy Tutorial. I downloaded the tutorial to scrib so you would be able to down load the PDF file to your home computer. Just click on download and save it to your own computer.
I was asked by a wonderful Kindergarten teacher to make a class set and once I did I realized that this pattern would be useful for anyone parents or teachers. Plus it is extremely easy to make since it uses only straight stitching. Thanks again Beth! I hope you give this free tutorial a try. Happy Sewing! ;)

This tutorial will be available soon!!! I just finished taking all of the gorgeous pictures for this super quick project. After so many wondering how to create this fun wallet I decided to write it down. It was designed for the speedy seamstress. If you want a great look but only want to spend a few hours making it. This is the design for you! In the pattern you prepare everything to be sewn first and then you put everything together at one time. It saves a ton of steps going back and forth between the ironing board and the sewing machine. Happy Sewing everyone:)
