A blankie

Flannel on one side and that "already quilted looking" material on the other.

It is heavy and soft.

For Grasshopper to snuggle in.

Bunnies in a bag

I made bags using the simple pattern I have perfected from Lotta'a book. The bunnies were from some other book. I've purchase a few, and I confuse the projects. The eyes are embroidered.

Flannel everything here.

They are a gift for 2 sisters who are playmates of my youngens.

This bag has a pocket

I have been eyeing a bag with outside pockets in the book the Sewing Adventure girls picked out for us to use. I needed something pronto as a birthday present for a little girl. It wasn't difficult at all considering I come prepared to conquer a mountain when the thing is only a little hill.

So, this bag now belongs to a little someone who I hope enjoys it as much as I did making it.
Speaking of mountains, there are some more complex bags I'd love to try and I must prepare by staring at a pattern for a week.

The April Project

I did the "pressing thing" this time. I don't usually have an iron handy when I sew, and I use lots of pins instead.

The Piggy Banks

OK, so why make a piggy bank with a bottle that has an opening too small for quarters? 'Cause it's fun, that's why! :-) Here they are, individualized to reflect the girl owner.

The idea came from here.

Without legs, and with broken legs.
Kid made.
