Quilted Tote Bag

I made this bag! Pattern is the Madras tote from Noodlehead with an interior pocket added for fun. Instead of canvas, I quilted the lining and exterior pockets. I'm looking forward to making more quilted totes. Thanks for tuning in!

Painting and Verse Frames

Well, summer is over and I've been making things! This painting was something I whipped up a few weeks ago. It is paint on canvas fabric in blues and white with specks of gold framed it in a big IKEA frame. 
I've  also been working on verse frames after a friend taught me how to make them. This one was quick and easy ...
I really had to persevere with this one (haha!) It's still not perfect and I may redo it with a smaller font. The frame was solid wood that I painted cream and distressed a little. Thanks for popping in!

Shibori Dyed Quilt Top

dye quilt top
Happy 4th of July! I have been humming and harring about this quilt top and finally decided to dye it. I wanted to take some focus off the orange (think I've accompolished that haha!) I used a shibori dyeing method to dye a corner of it. The process was messy but fun. 

I am surprised at how well the quilt top handled being washed and dyed. One of the benefits of making something out of scraps is that you can experiment like this and see what happens. Can't wait to show you the pieced back..

Quick Question

Hey there! How's your summer going? 

My husband recently finished building us a cabin. He was out in his studio a lot putting it together so I decided to use my evenings making this quilt top using fabric I had on hand. Is this the ugliest quilt top ever? I'm torn over whether to finish it or fold it up and forget it ever happened. Sigh. 

Please consider subscribing. Thanks!

Simple Tank Top

Sew ClothingHi everyone! I've just finished sewing this tank top. What do you think? I made the pattern myself by copying a top I had from Banana Republic. This tutorial was also helpful. The armholes have the same binding as the neckline but it's hidden. This was a fun project and I'm excited to make more. Thanks for popping in ...
