Sew, This is my new project that is on the table. However I have a dilemma I bent some sewing rules making this wonderful bag. Here is my problem do I write the tutorial with the bent rules Or redo the bag in a more traditional way??? What do you think? The bending of the rules happened in the binding area :)

This is an easy project!!! I would recommend it to any one!! Plus the instructions are easy to follow and free at My Aim Is True. I only used 1/2 yd. of Joel Dewberry's Ironwork and a 1/4 yd. of his modern petal/ forest and elastic. For less than $10 I have a new fab skirt with designer fabric!! Go try it out and if you have made one stop and tell me how you liked it or disliked it.

Sew Spoiled Ladybug inTina Givens fabric

Just wanted to share another great way to use the Ladybug eBook. Instead of using linen, I used another print that complimented the accent print. These fabrics are from Tina Givens "Evening Light" fabric collection. Sew Love Fabrics carries the collection at etsy. I love Ruth's shop!! It was Ruth's idea to use the Ladybug print by Tina Givens.
I love this look of country chic!
Another good use for the ladybug, mini purse would be for pacifiers. It is the perfect size to zip and store 2 or more pacifiers at a time. Attach the ladybug to your diaper bag and you have easy access!
Remember you can find these patterns from Sew Spoiled at Etsy.
Have fun sewing!!

Making Memories

Being at the beach I thought I could use a wristlet to carry all of my small belongings. My daughters helped out too. We traced there hands on Heat n Bond Lite and ironed on the Heat n Bond Lite to their choice of fabric. Then I cut it out and stitched around the hand fabric onto the linen seen in the photo. We wanted more color so my girls helped me pick out the other patchwork pieces. The entire straight sewing my oldest daughter helped with. She even helped with the embroidery with the color of string and where to put it. She liked to watch the machine "draw". I love my wristlet and the memories we made making it. I hope that my girls will grow up enjoying sewing as much as I do.
