Last night was dinner/sewing/killing zombies night at our place. My friend picked up a couple of fat quarters with my promise of teaching her how to sew.
They are sooo adorable! Thank you to Noodleheads's tutorial Lil Cutie Pouches. I followed it exactly with the exception of additionally sewing along the top edge of the zipper.
She picked the Valorie Wells Nest - Birds in Teal. Her daughter is in the middle with Michael Miller's Tweet Tweet in Yellow. And mine I split with super-awesome-I'm-so-in-love-with-this-fabric-right-now Michael Miller's Ellie, Love Birds, and Hedgehogs (inside). This is going to be my extra card case for my purse. It should fit a stack of random cards perfectly.
Top - Michael Miller's Hedgehogs
Middle - I have no idea it was just a FQ with no selvage so does anyone know what this is???
Bottom - Alexander Henry's Fashionista - Mod Dots in Aubergine
They were super quick to make... so quick that I only have one in-process shot:
and then poof they were done!
I have to admit, I did most of the sewing on the top. We didn't get to zippers on her very first night. :) But she is a pro iron-er!
We went through the basics of rotary cutting and loading the machine and we used her fat quarter with some hot pink solid to sew up some passport covers for her family. Here she is on her very first attempt:
A couple seam ripping lessons later and tada! Passport cover! Yay!
And I still have NO idea what that fabric is... any clues/ideas would be appreciated!
In the meantime... here is my next project in the works!! I'm super excited about this too - I finally chopped into all of my Andrea Victoria fabric!
