New Beginnings . . . Week 18

Thirty-five weeks to go . . . Today was a great day to be creative. So, I decided to make a Mini Sew Together Bag; pattern by Michelle of  SewDemented, and the conversion worksheet for the mini was created by Elizabeth E. of OPQuilt.com. The original Sew Together Bag pattern is needed for the conversion. I also used the Sew Along tutorial that I found on The Quilt Barn‘s blog.
Wow! I can’t believe it! I finished it! This is a first for me, since I began my New Beginnings Challenge. I’m usually rushing to create something on Sunday; just to meet my deadline. WooHoo!

 

New Beginnings . . . Week 16

Thirty-seven weeks to go . . . Where will my creativity and the Internet take me this week?!

I didn’t make it in time! I’m sixteen minutes late, but I did finish my project for week 16. I made another One Hour Basket; mine took much longer because I made a scrappy quilt as you go exterior (front and back). You will love this quick and easy project. 1 Hour Basket Tutorial

New Beginnings . . . Week 14

Thirty-nine weeks to go . . .  ummmmm, what will I create this week?

As usual, this was another fully booked week. I didn’t get a chance to create anything new, so I decided to make two more pillowcases and some pocket tissue holders that you  can attach to your key ring or backpack. I box my corners. It gives it a different look. I couldn’t find the tutorial that I used years ago; that showed you how to make several tissue holders at one time. Anyway, I posted pictures and will add the tutorial at a later date. You can always Goggle it if you really need to try it now. Hope next week will be better.

New Beginnings . . . Week 13

Forty more  weeks to go . . . Maybe I’ll get to those pillowcases this week. 

Completed my pillowcase; thinking about making two more. I checked out several tutorials, and the measurements were slightly different.  For instance Crafty Gemini’s measurements were; 24″, 12″, and 2″, and Jenny Doan’s (Missouri Star Quilt Co.) measurements were: 27″, 9″, and 2″. However, I noticed that the top and bottom add up to 36″ before sewing. I’ve attached the PDF pillowcasepattern  tutorial by Lindsay Conner that I used, and of course pictures of my pillowcase.

New Beginnings . . . Week 12

Forty-one weeks to go . . .  maybe, pillowcases, I’m not sure!

Oh Well! I didn’t make pillowcases, but I did make a DIY Neck Wallet by Shabby Fabrics, Jennifer Bosworth is the instructor. I think you will  like making this too. I’ve added the video tutorial and link for the free pattern. As always, I’ve posted pictures of what I mad, and I added a decorative stitch to my neck wallet. Have fun!
